Aioli. It's simple, it's garlic & lemon. And it's got spring all over it. Blanched Spring veg. Goat cheese, from the Cave of course, some traces of homemade ricotta, and bread.
Garlic paste, whisked with egg yolks & salt.
Whisking in the olive oil, lemon juice, and tasting for salt
Roast Chicken, butterflied, and with a fennel pollen paste.
...after cooking. Crispy skin & all. Don't be jealous. ;)
Home grown greens, lemon dressing, Parm shavings
An Orange Olive Oil Cake. My weakness. Bake, me, wha?? I'll admit, I was cranky. If you are on my friend's list, and you KNOW who you are, you know this. However....It tasted like heaven.
The juice of 1 orange, the zest of SIX ORANGES, and olive oil. No wonder it tastes and smells like singed orange essence. It's fantastic.
Cake, whipped cream, beat into submission by a vanilla sugar I made recently.
