January at the greenmarket in NYC starts to be frustrating. I’ve had so many beets, carrots, and apples at this point that I’m starting to fantasize about spring already when winter is barely under way. But there’s always more creativity to be squeezed out or old things to be newly attempted if you have it in you. This week, I didn’t, so I turned to thomas keller for assistance yet again.
My surf and turf was a vague impression of what I’m sure is a colossal dish at TFL.
The new look at carbonara using gnocchi instead of pasta seemed to work, although it will require some tweaking in the future. It was nice to be able to put my first cured meat on center stage, too.
I crisped up the last of the duck confit in a hot oven, sigh, and served it in a colorful, sweet, and peppery salad.
