Voilà, the results of yesterday’s cooking exercise in my kitchen. (The first time I cooked in my kitchen in Manhattan since 1996. In yesterday’s entry I wrote since 1999, but the correct date is December 1996. It was Hanukkah, my friend Karol was visiting me; we baked potato pancakes.)
Thanks to the help of my assistant Judith yesterday’s dinner (ceviche, salad with seared tuna, grapes; champagne rosé, rosé) was quite edible.
It turned out that both my assistant and I didn’t know how to cook potatoes. All I can say is that we did cook potatoes and that my guest appeared to be satisfied.
Making the ceviche was an absolute highlight of my life.
I plan to use my kitchen every other year, instead of once in fifteen years.
