Aphorisms from the Professor: Brillat-Savarin

Sunday, November 1, 2009

Today we decided to spice things up and do a big grocery shop at the somewhat sketchy but definitely awesome K & S World Market. We got a lot of random ingredients that we don't normally buy and that will be fun to have around to play with. Not surprisingly, tonight's dinner was inspired by these ingredients.

"Greens Maki": rice, cabbage, leeks, bacon and turnip greens wrapped in nori and topped with wasabi mayonnaise
Korean-style short ribs marinated in soy sauce, ginger, sriracha, garlic, maple syrup, rice wine vinegar and lemon juice


  1. I've forgotten how good the "futomaki" type of sushi can be, nori turned green and crispy by passing over a heat source, rubbed with sesame seed oil and making the sushi "ingredient-centric." Thanks for the reminder. Now I just need a boyfriend to share the food.

  2. MMMMMM..yummy as usual!!! I love nori!! I never thought of wrapping anything other than sushi-type stuff in it. Must try that.

  3. what a healthy yummy meal!!

    ps korean barbeque is my fave so im drooling right now!!

  4. Oh! Love maki...and yours look absolutely healthy and delicious...what a great dinner!

  5. that kalbi looks good...(the korean ribs)
