Fired up the BBQ tonight with snow to my knees.

Rack of lamb and flattened brick chicken. It's only -12C.

Such a gorgeous night that I could hear my neighbours in their hot tub.

A gorgeous night indeed. From 360 Restaurant at the top of the CN Tower (home of the self-proclaimed "World's Highest Wine Cellar"), you could see a very long way through the clear winter air. Was taken there last night for a b-day dinner, and the food is surprisingly good for a tourist trap.

We used the raclette grill last night. Ingredients included green onion, red bell pepper, halved Brussels sprouts, capicola, and chipotle chicken sausage. Cheeses were Jarlsberg and Gruyere.

Saturday at home
Blue crab cakes over mixed greens with Dijon vinaigrette
Then I pan seared some Chilean sea bass that I topped with shiitake mushrooms previously cooked in withe wine. It came out pretty darn good I didn't screw up the sea bass as I have done once before

I only used about half of the cabbage the recipe called for, so I think the paint on my walls is safe.

where??

I have a hard time finding a place that makes a steak as good as one made at home. Buy good beef (Whole Foods in the Gables sells 45-day dry-aged ones), salt, pepper, a little bit of garlic powder, evoo, and a really hot cast-iron skillet can't be beat.

Dinner at Luihn in Kristiansand, Norway.

Starter: Cod Tongue paired with a dry German Riesling
Main Course: Monk Fish in a sour cream reduction sauce paired with a 2005 Bourgogne Rouge

In a word: Stunning. I don't know how I managed to miss this place during the years that I have been traveling to Kristiansand.

I'll be back!
