Sometimes I think culinary school should be referred to by something more along the lines of, “cook every food in the world as unhealthy as humanly possible school”- a little long, but I’m sure there is some snazzy way the folks in culinary school PR could shorten it?
Last night, among other things, we made eggplant Parmigiana. We took the healthy eggplant…innocent enough, breaded it, pan fried it in butter, smothered it with cheese and baked it… we then topped it with the homemade tomato sauce we had made, by first sautéing bacon in butter and then cooking the onions, carrots, garlic, etc in the bacon fat and butter… before adding the tomatoes. Now don’t get me wrong….it was pretty freakin tasty…but come on!
Rob and I visited a new (to us) restaurant on Friday night called Nuvo… look for the review (with pictures) to come hopefully later today!
