I’ve been kinda lazy the past week and pasta is the easiest thing to make which is why I’ve been eating a lot of it. I did manage to find one simple recipe from the Ad Hoc cookbook that I could throw together with very mimimal effort and that’s Keller’s grilled asparagus with prosciutto, fried bread, poached eggs, and balsamic vinegar. Numnumnum.
Last week’s shows
Hot Chip w/ The XX tonight in Oakland!
To anyone looking for an everyday cookbook, I would recommend, The Art of Simple Food, by Alice Waters. In it, she provides recipes for very common, everyday type meals that are simple to prepare and incorporate fresh, healthy ingredients. Trust when I say that this cookbook will not be sitting on your coffee table only to be used to impress your friends when they come visit. (As much as I love David Chang’s Momofuku, a lot of his recipes require way too much time and prep work. I would have to devote an entire day to making some of his dishes i.e. ramen.) While none of the dishes in Simple Food are incredibly imaginative, they’re easy to make and very delicious.
