I am supposed to be writing a post about fish soup and cabbage and foie gras bundles.
I have nothing witty or insightful to say about either.
I am going to come right out and admit it...
...these were two of my least favorite recipes in the book.
There was something about the idea of running beautiful (and expensive) snapper through a food mill that made me sad. I opted to use the snapper to make a quick fish stock and then reserved the fish meat to add in the soup at the end. I think it was the fennel that threw me off at the end of the day - which means this was more of an issue of personal taste than the recipe.
On the other hand. I don't know what to say about the cabbage/ foie gras thingy.
I like foie gras.
I don't mind cabbage. As coleslaw. In sauerkraut.
I don't like foods wrapped in cabbage (I am looking at you golumpki).
This one didn't work for me. (Although, I was amused by the color of the water after boiling my cabbage leaves.)
That's all I have to say about that...
Next on the FF docket is veal marengo. There will be deviations.
In other news, winter hasn't decided to leave Upstate NY yet... As right now, the mercury is reading -6F.
Book news: just finished The Bishop's Wife by Mette Ivie Harrison. It was an interesting read, but could be a little sensitive for some readers.
Have a great weekend. Stay warm.
