Last night went to the local Indian place. Shrimp pakora, tandoori chicken, and paneer tikka. Brought a bottle of Depreville Brut Rose, from the part of France near the Pyrenees. (They have a $2 per glass corkage fee)

Last night at the local fish place, the chef was surpassing his usual excellent offerings. We started with a delicious gazpacho, beautifully presented with a very generous garnish of heirloom tomatoes, Dungeness crab claw meat, cucumber and chive flowers (photo below); then a striped bass crudo with orange zest, tarragon, a bit of bird’s eye pepper and a superbly fruity olive oil (above). Then a summer salad of ripe Okanagan peaches and feta with fresh herbs. The main course— a surprise from the kitchen— was John Dory fillets buried under a mound of fresh corn sliced off the cob, and sautéed chanterelles. All delicious, and accompanied with a nice grand cru Chablis. Despite all the political unrest, shootings, health scares, travel restrictions, etc, life is pretty good sometimes. 🙂
Looks and sounds fantastic. Glad you are enjoying great food!
Grilled some t-bones. String beans from the local farm stand. A delicious peach from the farm as well. The peach was almost the size of a softball.
Just tasted my first ever batch of home cooked barbecue ribs that I made for the first time, and goddamn, are they good!
Had some wine left from a few days ago. So I’m making a tomato sauce with pancetta and mushrooms for tonight. Mushrooms (in garlic and butter) are added at the end. It’s simmering for the last two hours. Still needs a bit more. This will be great

I'm on a fruit diet now, wanted to try something new. So, I'll have just a fruit salad and a glass of wine, of course. I'm trying to lose weight for a long time. I was on different diets, but none of them didn't really help. So, I decided to try something unusual and found this article. Hope, it'll turn out successfully.
