This week I have several goodies to share with you.
First up, food porn! Last week I had lunch with some new foodie friends at Atsumi Asian Kitchen & Sushi Bar. It was sooooo good. Atsumi is an Asian Fusion restaurant that blends traditional Chinese cuisine with a constantly changing sushi menu, centered around the freshest fish. Not only is the chef cooking Asian fusion, there is also a “secret menu” from which you can order traditional dishes that you would find in China. If you’ve been to China and have a favorite dish, just ask your server for it.
A couple of attendees had sushi and the rolls on their plates looked fabulous! (Unfortunately I didn’t take note of what they ordered.)
Next up, a recipe titled, “Texas Caviar”. Just in case you don’t know, there are no fish eggs in this recipe. The “roe” is black-eyed peas.
This is a yummy dip that can be made and eaten year-round. The recipe I’m sharing came from my mom, so that is to whom I attribute it. I have no idea where she got it.
The recipe is as follows:
- 1 can white hominy, drained
- 2 cans tomatoes with jalapenos, diced (I use Ro*tel)
- 1 can black-eyed peas, drained
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1/4 cup green pepper, chopped
- 1 can corn, drained
- 1 can black beans, drained
- 1/4 cup parsley, chopped
- 1 1/2 cup Italian dressing
- 1/2 cup salsa
Combine all ingredients and mix well. Serve with whatever corn or tortilla scoops you most enjoy.
Let me know what you think if you try it.
And finally, an interview with Alton Brown by Spoon University. (Disclaimer: I love him and Chef Gordon Ramsay. That is all.) “Alton Brown Dishes on Food Philosophy and Why Millennials Suck – An interview with Alton Brown while on his Edible Inevitable Tour”. (And when Mr. Brown shared this on FB, he made sure we knew that he did not say millennials suck.)
And remember, share your favorite thoughts, recipes, chefs, food television shows, etc., with me and I will happily feature them here!
