While visiting Seattle, my cousin suggested that perhaps I would like to cook dinner for the family at her new house. Of cousre, who am I to pass up an opportunity to cook in someone else’s kitchen?
The spread – couldn’t get everyone at the table at the same time since my cousin’s three-week old daughter was demanding personal attention the entire time.
Homemade kalmatta olive and rosemary bread.
Grilled tri-tip of beef, marinated with soy sauce and ginger and served with two sauces, a Thai style green chili sauce and a tamarind sweet and sour sauce.
Shredded Brussels sprouts with bacon and walnuts.
Black beans with sofrito.
Roasted yams with red onions, garlic, and rosemary.
For dessert, a plum claufoutis, a French style baked fruit pancake.
