suppli

My favorite Roman snack and leftover risotto usage: suppli.

Take your cold risotto, make a flat rectangle of rice in your hand, put a chunk of sausage, meat and/or cheese inside and roll the rice around the filling. Flour, egg, breadcrumb your rolls and then fry them at around 180 C or a bit lower if the filling is raw.  EAT.

Le Bon Marche Madness!

If you’ve never been to Le Bon Marche it is worth a visit just to the food section. It’s sort of like a food mecca, like the food section in Harrod’s in London. There were so many things to try and so little understanding of what things were. Regardless, I went a little crazy and did some serious sampling. Crab meat with dill wrapped with smoke salmon and a glob of caviar, duck and arugula crepe, prosciutto di San Danielli, goat cheese, baghuette, fava beans lightly sauteed in butter and vinegar, and a pear. All excellent.

Momofuku New York

I had to try Momofuku Ko and the Ssam Bar.  So delicious.  The pork buns were ridiculous and the Ramen at Ko was incredible.  This is a must if you’re in New York.  Check the menus below from Ko and the Ssam Bar and some food shots…  The Spicy Rice Cakes were also pretty interesting tasting.
