Last week at a dinner party I had a conversation with someone while sipping expensive white wine and looking down at me through the bottom of her tri-focal glasses with a nasal tone only her plastic sergeant could endure say, "Oh, you're a home cook, how
nice for you, so what is your “Signature Dish”? (Thank you Food Network for a new Pop Culture word, “Signature Dish”) And then I realized I didn’t have one, and needed one right away. After all, any self-respecting “Foodie”... (Hey! There’s another one! “Foodie”)
should have a Signature Dish right? So here it is… Still needs work, the Pork is over cooked in this photo but I do feel better about myself since I am now in the process of perfecting my "Signature Dish. It is Pork Tenderloin rubbed with Smokey Paprika and
Cardamom then Braised to perfection and finished with my Ginger Honey Sauce. Oh by the way, also on the plate is Portabella Mushrooms braised in butter and the pan juices from the tenderloin and then stuffed with my newest discovery, mashed Parsnips and Horseradish…
and fresh sliced heirloom tomatoes. OMG so good!
And so the question remains... (in the most nasalie of all nasal tones you can imagine as you read.) What is your "Signature Dish"? Do share, won't you? Please do share.
