Food & Drink

I'm Chris - or Christopher - or Mr. Dean - or Master Christopher - or just plain Sir. I'm a self-professed foodie. I love to cook and I take great pleasure in all things edible. My husband and I are relatively new to Portland, Oregon and are enjoying our culinary explorations of the area!

Food is NOT just fuel!

Bottarga for miles

A little Bottarga goes a long way.  A long, long way.  I have a TON of it left, so I'll be scrambling to figure out how I can use every single last piece of it.  But in the meantime - yesterday I needed a snack since the dinner I was cooking needed to braise for 2 hours.  So I got some sesame crackers and piled some thick slices of havarti on some and baby swiss on some others.  But what made this oh-so-much more than just your run-of-the-mill cheese & crackers was the dusting of grated Bottarga over top.  It added just the right OOMPH!!
