Hope everyone is enjoying your holiday weekend.
We just finished a few app dishes for tonight and now we are experimenting with a few Hawaiian fusion dishes and Middle eastern fusion dishes. To give you some insight, here’s a few of our thoughts…actually rediculous redonkulous ideas.
So needless to say, we decided to play with a Hawaii favorite…pig. And lets face it, who doesn’t love pork? (Insert your favorite Bourdain quote now).
Kalua pig wrap
Kalua pig, rice, fried or carmelized onions, blanched cabbage, and bourbon mushrooms, and pineapple salsa. Served with a small cherry tomato tarragon bi-colored corn salad.
We were fussing around with it last night and believe this is a good “winnah winnah piggy dinnah” combination.
Koshary (Thanks to Abu Tarek)
Now we don’t normally serve middle eastern foods…in fact, the only one we make regularly is koshary.
But then we also like LOVE the idea of small one bowl hand-held foods. See our posts about one-handed wonders here.
Braised or grilled lamb with cucumber yogurt, and cherry tomatos topped with a thin sun-dried tomato humus.
Alright, so we don’t have a picture of this yet….but we will. Sounds like a bite sized gyro, but I intend for this to be HUGE on flavortown.
Also on the docket, lobster rolls (Thanks Giada De Laurentiis), steak au pouvire (Thanks Alton), egg ravioli (Thanks Michael Ruhlman @ruhlman), ceviche, and gaezpacho.
So here’s to your holiday weekend and experimenting with new dishes!
Cause we made a mess.
