  1. Privacy depends on people keeping things off limits - if you never say X about Y, how is Z going to know? As of today, 99% of my content on Facebook is gone. Disappeared, eliminated, obliterated, etc. They really make it hard for you to leave but I managed and it's been extremely liberating.
  2. Had dinner here on Sunday, celebrating my partner's birthday (which technically occurred in June): Octopus with lemon-oregano vinaigrette Fried smelts with garlic-potato skordalia Bacon chop with pork chicarron, potatoes and lemon Grilled lamb chops, lemon-oregano vinaigrette, roasted potatoes Bread pudding with berries and whipped cream Greek yogurt with nuts and honey We concluded that the things to eat at Kokkari are lamb and fish which makes sense since those are the dishes that Greek restaurants usually do well. The chop was not as successful as the server had made it sound (too rich, not flavorful enough). With a couple of glasses of rose wine, coffee and tea, this dinner came out to $255 with 20% tip.
  3. Crostini di prosciutto e fichi, served with melon 4 slices toasted bread 1 garlic clove, crushed 60 g ricotta cheese 100 g prosciutto di San Daniele 200 g figs extra-virgin olive oil salt black pepper
  4. Insalata di zucchine 200 g stale bread olive oil 1 garlic clove, minced pinch of peperoncino flakes salt black pepper 3 zucchini, sliced into ribbons 150 g mesclun Meyer lemon juice
  5. This was dinner last weekend - Green beans braised in tomato sauce Braised chicken with wine, olives and tomato My partner had to spend most of July moving his parents from their assisted living spaces in Texas to a new assisted living space/nursing home in New Jersey, then he had to go back to Texas along with his sister to help sell the house. While he was away, I basically spent the intervening time living on takeout since I lost all motivation to cook. Not sure how I survived when I was single...
  6. I do like her writing style and a couple of her spotlights are on our list. Still disagree with her on the stars though.
  7. I haven't been posting lately so look for an update later tonight when I bring you all up to speed on what's been happening in the past couple of months.
  8. A favorite recipe is lesso o allesso 1 1/2 kg beef brisket carrots onions celery 7-10 black peppercorns 2 bay leaves Italian parsley salt water The broth in which the beef and vegetables simmer is served as a first course. The beef and vegetables are a second course, served with either salsa verde or salsa rossa. Leftovers are perfect in sandwiches.

  10. Eggs fried in olive oil, served over heirloom tomato salad and garlic toast.
  11. Israeli salad Pan con tomate Spiced lamb fillet braised with onion
  12. Nectarine galette with brown butter and garam masala.
  13. You know it's true love when you and your husband spend Monday morning peeling 2 kg fava beans pods which magically became 260 g peeled beans. Fava beans with zucchini, tomato and soft-boiled eggs.
