We have this fabulous chain of supermarkets here in New Jersey called "Kings". On Friday, a friend and I went to the first anniversary of one of these markets celebrating with cool infusion water bottle give always, tasting tables and mini cooking demo's.
We tasted heavenly coconut-curry shrimp and creamy burrata cheese. Wonderfully crunchy California rolls called "crunchy", chocolate covered strawberries and just when we needed it, caramel-vanilla espressos. I succumbed to a coconut-almond chocolate spread
that my son will devour blindly before lacrosse practice and brought home balducci's herb marinated chicken to roast for dinner with a fresh, green salad.
The Burrata, (yes, I bought that also) was exceptional with fresh basil and tomatoes, pictures shown and Since we had Japanese rice with our cilantro/lime grilled steak tonight, I made some very simple California rolls.
This morning I made raspberry-vanilla cream Belgium waffles and with the leftover raspberry sauce that I made with two pints of fresh raspberries and sugar, I made a quick raspberry ice cream in my cream maker. (Mixed the raspberry syrup with whole
milk, a bit of cream and about 3 more tablespoons of very fine sugar.). Williams Sonoma has an amazing waffle book and the recipe is basically from the strawberry-vanilla bean waffle one in the book. Can't wait to pick out next Sunday's Belgium waffles!
