I took a break from my online cooking courses by Cooks Illustrated, but I purchased one of their books which I’m busy paging through to further educate the foodie in me.
Here’s a sample of late summer foods from my garden that have hit the spot:
Our corn is stunted and pathetic, due to a lack of fertilizing, but still…
….we’ve managed to harvest a few ears of corn that look iffy but taste so crunchy and sweet!
Let me sing the praises of fresh mozzarella, sliced garden tomatoes still warm from the sun, fresh basil leaves, drizzled balsamic glaze and extra virgin olive oil, and all sprinkled with sea salt and pepper….so light and fresh!
this is summer on a plate….
And let’s not forget the steak grilled to perfection and topped with caramelized onions. While the steak was grilling, I threw on some zucchini spears coated lightly with olive oil, salt, and pepper. After they were grilled, I sprinkled them with freshly grated parmigiano reggiano and a little lemon juice.
And here’s a final picture to keep everything real: 😉
