Eleven Madison Park Fall Tasting Menu Reveal!

{Chef Daniel Humm}

Nathan had an idea one evening - he decided to find out when Eleven Madison Park would be launching its fall tasting menu. After calling and stopping by a few times, he found out the menu would be revealed on October 7th, just a few days before my 30th birthday! Soon we were all set for a 6pm reservation.

Franny's Fusilli with Pork Sausage Ragu

I am obsessed with the Franny's cook book! I think I have made just about every pasta recipe, maybe even twice. It has been my go-to for casual Friday nights in, and cookbook recipes are even more fun to follow when you are hanging out with friends over a bottle (or two) of wine.

One of my favorite types of pasta sauce is a meaty ragu (duck, pork, lamb, etc), so when I saw this pork sausage ragu I sent it along to Nathan and suggested we try it out. Nathan picked up ingredients at Caputo's Fine Foods (fresh pasta and charcuterie!), a go-to in Carroll Gardens for all things Italian, and Staubitz, a meat purveyor in Cobble Hill.

My best friend's older sister, Arti, and I, planned a foodie trip to Chicago, and the restaurant at the top of both of our lists to visit was none other than Alinea!

Franny's Penne with Zucchini and Mint


I have fond memories of Franny's, so I was excited to learn that the restaurant had released a cookbook! Pasta and pizza for days!

Pan Roasted Salmon

I promised another easy to make salmon recipe, but got distracted with summer and not turning my oven on. Now that we are heading into fall, here is another quick recipe that works on fresh reef caught salmon from Lummi Island or farm raised Atlantic salmon. I haven't tried it on frozen salmon before, but if you try that out, let me know how it goes!

Easy Roasted Corn

It's August, and all of nature's summer bounty is filling our farmers markets (and our tummies)!
