On this long holiday weekend (Pentecost), Mrs. Rock assumed cooking duties, and excelled. Last night (Saturday) she made Vietnamese summer rolls with two fillings (chicken and shrimp). Tonight she made a lobster pasta with white asparagus tips and fresh basil. We drank Champagne, a premier cru blanc de blancs (100% chardonnay) from the boutique producer Gimonnet-Henry.

Looks great as usual - but the 'lobster pasta with white asparagus tips and fresh basil' sounds especially cool. I hope Mrs. Rock and yourself enjoyed it all. :)


Today I went to the market as it was just opening. Since returning I've spent the morning preparing some of the 5kg/11lbs of chicken breast I bought into meals for the coming week. Nothing exotic, just simple high protein meals I can augment with a variety of carbs and salads on the day.

Wild salmon, oven-baked in foil, with lots of lemon and mushrooms, some chives, ginger and sage, and potatoes roasted at the same time.    A blueberry muffin for dessert.

Sounds good. I'm especially fond of the fish and ginger combination.

Tonight Mrs. Rock invented a "Mexican" dish: chicken in a tomato/jalapeno sauce. Served with baked pumpkin (with sea salt and garlic) and corn on the cob. Drank a chilled rosÚ (merlot and syrah) from the French producer Domaine Lalande (Languedoc-Roussillon).

I'm better now, pizza was decent. And the delivery girl....  :-* :-*

(she predictably reminded me of a girl that I liked that I played bass in a backing band with once, too attractive to be a delivery girl  :o :o )

Do you live in a taco or burrito city?

And your life would be better in one of these places:

Restaurant per capita: americans are small time players:

Bordeaux: 1/285
Lyon: 1/295
Paris: 1/404

Now you know what is the main motivation to come to France !

That seems a dubious criterion...Las Cruces, Los Angeles, and the TX Rio Grande valley would probably top any serious effort to produce such a ranking...

Oooh! One of my favorite things to do is to look at pictures of terrible, terrible European versions of Mexican food.

There are three. ┴rbol is a fast food place, Fresh Burritos Bordeaux is too, and Saveur Latine is a little nicer. Let's look at pictures!

┴rbol puts guac on all its tacos, and also a lot of grease.

Fresh Burritos Bordeaux looks okay but I don't understand this potato side dish.

Saveur Latine is clearly the worst one, they put giant sticks on their tacos and serve platters of weird burned shit and pita quesadillas served on salad.

Just made some fig jam with honey & cardamon & lemon.  The cardamon comes from my last trip to Cochin (India) and was freshly ground using spinning spineur special grinder.

I had to adjust the sugar and the cardamon while cooking.  Taste is super !

Earlier this month, I did the more exotic Rhubarb&Banana and lemon.  Nice too.

To have the right consistency, I add some agar-agar for additional pectin which makes the natural gel with the sugar.

Peanut butter-filled M&Ms.  But it's not an addiction.  I can quit any time I want. 


I just don't want to.

I could have posted that. The large box (365g) - doesn't last a day. 🐷
