I’m back from our wonderful European honeymoon. And I’ve returned plenty inspired (and a little heavier). Going to Italy, Greece, and Spain will do that to you…
Take a look at the photos to get a sense of some of what I was inspired by.
Anyways, I look forward to all of the possibilities and combinations that I will be exploring (and hopefully you are too). I can’t wait to start buying more produce and combining them in different ways in order to achieve another country’s cuisine. With the above three countries I believe this is very possible.
Here are some of my leading ideas after returning from the trip:
-develop our own unique homemade base tomato sauce (which can be used for TONS of dishes other than pasta, though pasta can certainly be a main player) -work on my grilling technique (using the new grill I’m currently in the process of putting together)
-find as many uses as possible for tzatziki sauce (no explanation should be necessary as to why…)-start using more and more fresh vegetables
-Creating my own tapas/small plates
Enjoy the exciting things to come!
