Tim’s first draft of his Master’s thesis had been on my desk for some time now, so today is the day I tackle reading and editing.
On the other hand, it is Saturday, and I have the kitchen all to myself, so it is a Working Lunch. Tim: sorry for a few drops of wine on page 24.
We have some good leftover roast chicken, but I decided on another plan. Turns out that I had a lovely piece of yellowfin tuna I needed to cook, plus some new condiments from gustiamo.com, including wicked good sun dried tomatoes and Colatura, a concentrated juice of salted anchovies.
So lunch was;
Great quality organic spaghetti with garlic, sun dried tomatoes, hot pepper and colatura
Seared tuna with a crust of Trapani sea salt crystals, black, chipotle and Maras peppers and finely-ground espresso beans
Oltrepo Pavese Bonarda
Luciano Pavarotti recording of La Traviata
Looks delicious; hopefully you’ll find the thesis draft as palatable! Let me know if you need a new printout of page 24 😉
