What’s on the table?

“I never see any home cooking. All I get is fancy stuff.”

– Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh

So what’s been gracing the table here at home the last week. Haven’t been going out at dinner time, pretty much all home cooking. Some of it, a chance to play with dishes that Henry’s not fond of.

Greek class

Then again, there were also cooking classes, including one of my favorites, our simple Greek dinner – vegetable and rice stuffed grape leaves with a lemon-egg sauce, eggplant grilled and then baked in a tomato-yogurt sauce, and, prawns baked with tomatoes and feta cheese.

Miso-glazed salmon, brown butter daikon

There was the leftover tail end of the salmon from making gravlax, which I pan seared and glazed with a miso, honey and mirin mixture, then served over pureed daikon with a brown butter balsamic sauce.

Pappardelle alfredo

And, inspired by the not quite it pappardelle alfredo of last week’s lunch at Moreno, my own semolina pappardelle, with classic alfredo and a fresh tomato on the side. Need my vegetables….

Bolognese Pizza a la parrilla

And, with a bowl of bolognese sauce leftover from one of the Italian cooking classes, I recalled the also not quite it pizza a la parrilla at Grappa, and was inspired to whip up one myself.

Secrets from an Argentinian girl….
The best vegetables or fruits are not in the supermarket local. You can visit MERCADO DEL PROGRESO, and for sure you can get the best fruit, vegetables and meat in Buenos Aires.
I love cook … I buy my specialities there…
Great pictures dear autor !
I want eat now!

Not that big of a secret, nor relevant to the post, but thanks for the comment – hope you don’t mind that I’ve stripped out the links to your B&B site…. I’ve reviewed the market a couple of times – here and here, and have it listed as one of the best spots to shop.
