THE PERFECT SALAD

 This salad was a progression to perfection.  I’m really liking the French way of first whisking the vinegrette directly in the salad bowl, then layering beginning with the least fragile ingredients and topping with the greens.  When it comes time to serve, just toss.

CLOUD BREAD – an experiment

  Here I am playing with my food again.  This time it’s to find yet another way of providing my Frenchman with his bread fix. With no oven on our little boat, I rely heavily on my Omnia stove-top and occasionally to a lesser degree our back-of-the boat barbeque. Curious about all the ‘Cloud Bread’ recipes floating around, I thought I’d give it a try. […]
