Today’s list consists of some of 2007’s food hilights.

  • Homemade ice cream, using a custard base and the hand crank ice cream maker I scored at an estate sale.
  • A perfect steak, medium rare, at Le Pegion.
  • Cooking fresh fava beans Roman style.
  • Making the perfect Provencal salad with help from Gourmet.
  • Manilla mango season.
  • Pork belly pate at Navarre.
  • Lots of home made spicey corn fritters.
  • Making a killer salsa verde for the first time.
  • Tacos at Por Que No.
  • Using fresh tomatoes to make panzanella (bread salad), and bolognese, carbonara and amitricianna sauces.
  • First time I went to Ken’s Pizza.
