There have definitely been some good eats happening in the kitchen as we prepare for summer to arrive this Saturday at 6:51 in the morning. With summer in mind, I've been whipping up seasonal eats and today I wanted to share some of my favorite dishes from around the web.
These scallops in a dijon cream sauce made for a nice light lunch, but could also be served as an appetizer to share with a crisp, cool glass of wine on a hot summer evening.
Keeping with the seafood theme, I could not pass up grilling fresh branzino from Yellow Umbrella Provisions — these are so fun to serve family style, eating to share:
And finally, I realize there is no "R" in June, but I enjoyed sharing my go-to method for shucking and serving local Anderson's Neck Oysters over on Relay Foods this week:
I am very excited to get in the kitchen today and work with a fresh head of cabbage I picked up for an Indian style dish I've got in the works. I found myself running all over town yesterday collecting things like fresh curry leaves, asafetida, and Anaheim peppers.
I'm also very excited to be attending the Mid-Atlantic Food Writers Symposium — From Fork to Folio tomorrow and Saturday! This is going to be a wonderful learning experience to work side by side with the some amazing movers and shakers in the food world. Certainly more to come on that front!
