We wanted to get some sushi rolling practice in before teaching a Sushi & Sake class at work. Here’s the plate we came up with: Spicy Salmon, Spicy Tuna and our very own Blowout Roll!
This dish was inspired by a recipe we found in Stephanie Izard’s ‘Gather & Graze’ cookbook. Hers calls for squash blossoms for the casings; however, not being able to find any we swapped them out for jalapeños.
Napa is known around the world for its exquisite wine and food. While visiting my mom and sister this week, we dined at three recommended restaurants, enjoying the farm-to-table cuisine, and were inspired to create our own fine dining experience at home, Napa-style.
Last recipe we did ceviche in lime juice. This time we tried lemon. How do you like dem apples?
This recipe comes from my favorite restaurant in Napa, Mustards Grill. It’s become a tradition to eat lunch at Mustards at least once with the family when out visiting over Christmas and this time I bought their cookbook as a present to myself after another great meal. Give them a visit the next time you’re in California wine country!
