Barbequed Salmon with Strawberries, Mint and Cucumber Salsa. One of my all-time favorite recipes for salmon from Berries: A Country Garden Cookbookby Sharon Kramis (1994). A great seasonal presentation.
Never heard of one, but I must say it was delicious. I was intrigued when someone else ordered it and within ten minutes decided I had to try it. Basil? Love it. In a martini? Gotta try it. The bartender wouldn’t disclose the secret recipe but I saw him muddle the basil leaves with about a teaspoon of sugar, water and then some secret squirt of something or other and lots of vodka. We were at the Bleu Boheme on Adams Avenue in Kensington neighborhood of San Diego. I have eaten there before, the food is delish (though we didn’t have dinner there tonight), very French with menus on the chalkboards and all kinds of moules frites and traditional French dishes. White linen and all the rest. I would definitely recommend it and now I want to go back for another basil martini at some point. Or, perhaps I can google some recipes and try and come up with something; I have basil fresh in the garden!
My favorite thing about tumblr.—the electronic scrapbook I have at the end of these past seven months of favorite quotes, garden photos, wonderful food I ate, things I saw and did, stuff I love and all the memories I have that go with each and every post. All that and it’s green, minimalist, inexpensive and enjoyable to boot!
