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.
Was lucky to get a picture of this one. Gracie tried to snatch the trout from the counter when I left the room but fortunately only came away with its tail. Hope she enjoyed the fish as much as I did. Mulliard!
I hadn’t heard of a sushi burrito until a few months ago. It’s like a maki roll on steroids. You can pack them with fish, shrimp, vegetables, whatever you can fit inside. Just not too much or you might not be able to close it.
We were introduced to these bite-sized hors d’oeuvres at our friends’ wedding. After trying one, we immediately stationed ourselves by the door of the kitchen to intercept the waitress as she came back out with reloaded platters. They were just too good to warrant any self-control.
