Today I bring you 3 tips I got from reading Ingredienti by Marcella Hazan. I will be interested to see if you agree with her approach
Beefsteak Tomato – these lovely big tomatoes should be peeled before being sliced. Then pour a good red wine vinegar over the slices along with a little bit of garlic oil or oil and garlic before turning the slices over a few times.
Tomatoes should always be peeled if they are going into a salad. And they should be brought to room temperature before they are added to a salad.
Spinach should be blanched (dipped very quickly in boiling water and then cooled right away by ice or cold water) and dried before it is sautéed in oil and garlic.
