The Silver Spoon cooking update

Posted on: January 13, 2009

Last night’s dinner was a simple affair. I was able to get the dinner prepared in about 30 minutes. It was not the most creative or exotic dinner, especially after last week full of interesting spices and flavors, but it was quick and relatively healthy.

1. Pork chops in Gorgonzola sauce, The Silver Spoon, pg. 766 – a very easy, extremely easy recipe, and a very tasty one, especially for the ones who like the strong flavor of Gorgonzola cheese

2. Mashed potatoes – recipe retold from the Whole Foods site here. I skipped on garlic and bay leaf, and mixed the cream with skim milk so it wouldn’t be to fatty.

3. Salad – mixed greens, tomato, cucumber and cornĀ  with balsamico and olive oil

I also realize that I never properly concluded my Indian cuisine week since my last evening of Indian cuisine turned out somewhat disappointing (all my fault of course). Basically, it is a wonderful cuisine, and I will definitely keep cooking the recipes from the two cookbooks. I highly recommend both of them to anyone who needs a nice introduction to cooking Indian food. Here are the links to the two books one more time:
