I’ve been wanting to make this carbonara “pasta” dish (inspired by a dinner at Blue Hill Stonebarns) for more than a year, but didn’t have a julienned slicer. Enter my Cuisinart food processor — it was so simple and quick!

beet & goat cheese terrine, served with balsamic + fleur de sel

We started with the beet & goat cheese terrine above (2-mm slices of beets also done by my Cuisinart), with some salt and pepper cracked on top, with some drips of balsamic. Ate along with the beet, orange, and fennel salad pictured below. The dressing on top was a honey, olive oil, and riesling emulsification.

And then to the main — a bed of julienned zucchini and carrots, with a fried egg on top, and a drizzle (drench) of a pan-fried butter, bacon, chorizo, and heavy cream mixture.

We cheated a little with a previously-made dessert. Still had some of the roasted cherry and goat cheese ice cream I made a few weeks back. Here, paired with some Eggo waffle triangles and balsamic.

I’ve ate an insane, insane amount these last days in DC. I should have taken a break, but instead agreed to restaurant week dinner with Obi at Blacksalt Fish Market & Restaurant in Palisades, and then proceeded to not even order the restaurant week menu, going all out instead. Read the full post →
