I have to admit to myself that I must take a little break—Bruce is sick, and as my photographer (believe me, you don’t want to see any of my food photos!) he is unable to take any pictures for a while. Plus, I’m not doing too much cooking. So I’ll be back soon, hopefully early March—and I hope you will, too.
In the meantime, just a quick mention of a memorable meal—this is a must if you want to blow your budget in Los Angeles. A friend took me to Wolfgang Puck’s Cut for my birthday. Now, I am not a steak eater, but this was not just any steak–it was aged and cooked to perfection. We made up our own sampler of 21-day and 35-day aged New York sirloin and filet mignon plus some American Wagyu/Angus Kobe-style rib-eye. To say they was delicious beyond belief doesn’t do them justice….And so were the breads (amazing onion focaccia and pretzel rolls), first courses (a tuna tartare and a scallop-cum-truffle concoction) and dessert (chocolate souffle with gianduja ice cream, hot fudge and creme fraiche). The wine: a 2006 Frank Family Cabernet Sauvignon. I’ll be talking about this one forever!
