If you are looking for a fresh new take on how to create a good looking table for a party, think about doing something with raw wooden boards. I am in love with the raw wood boards that are out right now because they lend a natural rustic touch to your decor while giving you lots of surface area to lay out your food when you have guests over. This way you will not have tons of platters to wash and the look will be natural and different from everyone else.
Well if you are like me and missing New York Fashion Week because your child has pneumonia instead of going to Monika Chiang’s show in Lincoln Center this week, you will be at home working for your little CEO making hot tea, doling out antibiotics, making chicken soup and homemade sandwiches.
One of my 8 year old’s favorites is the Ciabatta sandwich I make that is so simple but made with the freshest and best ingredients.
Here is the secret to this gorgeous sandwich that I make for her without fail when she is sick.
The secret – buy fresh bakery ciabatta bread, fresh cut deli mortadella, organic avocados, and Kale microgreens. That is all it takes but because it is all fresh and healthy it looks gorgeous on a white Wedgewood china plate.
1 ciabatta roll
4 slices of thin mortadella
1 handful of kale microgreens
Slice open the bread into a half, toast it, spread avocado on both sides of the bread, add half handfuls of microgreens to each side of the bread on top of the avocado, and add the mortadella. Close the sandwich and enjoy.
This is a simple sandwich that always helps my 8 year old feel better when she is sick.
I was chosen by BLD Restaurant yesterday as their #Tweetadish winner for Shepherd’s Pie and was invited into the restaurant for dinner tonight. I was thrilled to dine at BLD because I had been there before and enjoyed my meal previously. Tonight Chef Diana Stavaridis made Shepherd’s Pie the special on the menu from #tweetadish on Twitter and created her own Shepherd’s Pie out of the traditional Shepherd’s Pie recipe. She told us she took Moroccan Spice rub and put it over lamb and braised it and then put a sweet potato crust on top and slow baked it. I thought it was a brilliant take on the traditional English favorite.
We also had the smoked BLD Mac & Cheese with our meal which was infused with a smokey BBQ flavor throughout. It was a nice surprise to the normal gourmet mac & cheese. My husband enjoyed the pan seared seabass with collared greens which was just the right amount of crispy on the skin. Overall a delicious meal. I would go back again a third time. #Tweetadish on Twitter with @bldchefd – you never know you may get picked for the next meal.
