Amazing night

  • 2 ribeye steaks, rare, with full-blown Maillard reaction crust
  • 6 Crash Hot potatoes, with kosher salt, fresh cracked pepper, and paprika
  • 1 handful flash-boiled haricot verts (but not for me)
  • 1 bottle Tierra Alta 2007 Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Christa
  • Brick

Really, that’s it, and it’s bloody fantastic all around.  For the record, I’m slightly tipsy.


  • Chocolate Cake

    There is nothing like the Maillard reaction for taste. It’s why I’m willing to burn all the hairs off my arm cooking over a 500 degree flame. I’m determined to get that crust that looks like it should be inedible, yet is oh so delicious.
