Simple and so tasty
I love pesto on pizza. Sounds good with chicken and rosemary. I'll have to try that soon!

tip from past experience: keep the pesto layer very, very thin. Otherwise the crust base soaks up the oils and you won't get that nice crispiness to the crust underneath Wink

whipped out the le creuset and made a beef bourguignon

Ditto ... braising some oxtail in two LCs. One is a tomato-based liquid (experiment). Second is just plain beef broth but will end up as a Filipino stew.

Braised beef short ribs tonight

Had them prepared by basecadet on Friday. Served with celery root mashed potatoes. Paired with 2000 Elderton Command Shiraz and a 2001 D'Arenberg Dead Arm. Delish!

It all sounds awesome. Very well done!

Fingerling Potatoes with rosemary, roasted in duck fat.

I can still taste this meal, two days later (in a good way)
Never, ever, underestimate what duck fat can do to potatoes. Magic! Cool

Jorgerunfrombulls, can you liken grapeseed oil to anything or is it unique? I don't think I have ever tried it.


I can't really liken it to anything. It has a unique flavor, pretty "stemmy", with some herbal aromatics. I don't care for it very much on its own, but with some lime juice, i think it's great.

FWIW - i keep it on hand as it has the highest smoke point of most commonly available oils.
