Alice Waters: Roasted Squid

I knew better, and I did it anyway.

For dinner I made Alice Waters' Roasted Squid with Breadcrumbs and Oregano (Cafe), with her carrot salad (SF) on the side. The results were received exactly as I had expected: very, very badly. 

So Mark and I ate most of this fairly tasty dinner ourselves. To accompany the squid I made a really excellent, pale green, super-garlicky aioli. I'm sort of hooked on this whole mayonnaise/aioli-making process, which is not necessarily good news.

For dessert, I baked an apricot galette (Fruit) using apricots I brought from Utah. It was very handsome and elegant, but a galette is not quite as delicious as pie. It's a little austere, and you can't dig into a slice of galette the way you dig into a piece of pie.

I also just prefer the word "pie."


  1. i thought the carrot salad was pretty good i liked it. but think of all those squid that died for that meal which you knew wouldn't turn out good. how could you?! my compliments to the carrot salad.

  2. ابدأ ، ولا تتوقف حتى تنتهي مدة 10 دقائق (على محمل الجد ، أوصي بإعداد المنبه خاصة إذا كنت تعرف أن 10 دقائق هي كل ما لديك). في المطبخ ، قم بإزالة أكبر قدر ممكن من الفوضى من أسطح الطاولات ، وإذا كنت في شك ، فضعها بعيدًا.شركة النجوم لخدمات التنظيف
