I ate this dish recently at a restaurant and the flavors were so well drawn. Soba noodles tossed in a mild but delicious Asian flavors, cilantro-mint pesto, seared wild Alaskan King Salmon, topped with a lightly savory-sweet, mildly pickled red cabbage slaw. At first I thought there might be too many elements (enough anyway that the margin for wrong was slim) BUT--it was so fantastically delicious. And, just seeing this pic made me want to recreate it at home soon.
Tomorrow I'm off to Chicago for The Taste of Chicago food festival: the largest in the USA.
I'll be demoing from MSL, EDF and Mad Hungry and signing books and I even have a treat up my sleeve too. I'll be joined by my colleague/friend and fab cook Jennifer Aaronson whose the editorial food director of Martha Stewart Living magazine. She makes so many of the great recipes in MSL. We've got some great dinner plans and a few extra minutes too. Does anyone suggest a Chicago must-stop for us??
My kinda town Chicago is.....
