Hot Focaccia Sandwich With Prosciutto, Gorgonzola & Avocado

I was getting hungry at 1.00 am last night and did not feel like having just a boring packaged snack, so I put together this fabulous sandwich. The spiciness of the gorgonzola, the slight acidity and fruitiness of the guacamole and the distinctive taste of the prosciutto made for a great flavor experience, while the different textures of the crispy bread, the gooeyness of the half melted cheese, the crispness of the outside layer of the prosciutto and the soft, delicate inner layers of the ham made all of this into an absolute delicious winner 🙂

Caesar Salad “Royal”

>

>

No such thing as a Caesar Salad “Royal” you say?
Maybe up until around noon today you were right. But, after I made myself a traditional caesar salad for lunch and looked at it with hungry eyes (Bella too) , we felt the strong need to embellish the salad somewhat and this was the result :

Trim and wash  romaine lettuce, cut into your preferred size or leave individual leafs whole. Prepare thinly sliced toast of your favorite bread. For the dressing, mash anchovy filets in a bowl, add egg yolks, roasted garlic pure, lemon juice, salt and cayenne pepper and in a slow, steady stream add good quality olive oil until you have a dressing the texture of  mayonnaise. Add some finely grated parmigiano reggiano, mix well. Adjust taste and texture if necessary. Mix romaine with the dressing, arrange on serving dish. If you love anchovies (I do), top salad with additional filets. Sprinkle with finely grated or finely shaved parmigiano reggiano. Serve toast on the side.     Voilà – Caesar Salad.

For Caesar Salad “Royal”, add the following items :
Prosciutto ham, salame, brie cheese, asiago cheese, manchego cheese, grape tomatoes, chives.     Voilà – Caesar Salad “Royal”

Bon Appetit !   Life is Good !

P.S.
Caesar Salad “Imperial” coming up soon. ( Think crab legs, lobster, shrimp, caviar, etc) 🙂

Gnocchi, Prosciutto, Asparagus & Parmigiano Reggiano

“Pretty”  is not usually the first thing that comes to my mind as far as food is concerned.
But looking at this dish, the thoughts were first : Pretty ! Then : Let’s eat right NOW !
Usually we saute the prosciutto lightly but in this case, it was so thinly sliced and delicate,
just adding it to the top of the dish seemed the right thing to do.
And yes, I just preferred the texture and taste this way. Good Stuff 🙂

Bon Appetit !   Life is Good !
