“Honey! Honeeeey!!!” I said waking Mr NQN shaking his arm urgently.
From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite... The weather turned cool and wet on Saturday. Really wet. It was not a day for salads, so I pulled an untried soup recipe from my files and had a go at it.
Illustration: Nora Murphy I was reading something online the other day about the last meals selected by prisoners on death row. There were sad little photos showing institutionally prepared versions of down home favorites, like fried chicken and biscuits on a forlorn plastic tray. Most of it looked like hospital-issued junk food, prepared with the same lack of culinary gusto you might experience while recovering from having your appendix removed, only with way less concern for your health.
I went to the Rivington Grill in Greenwich for dinner on Thursday night as my boyfriend and I have decided to start visiting restaurants in our local area more regularly. We like our expensive Michelin starred restaurants but one or twice a year is the limit if we want to stay in the black. During March the restaurant had been running a 30% offer for certain lunch and dinner services so I booked a table last weekend just in time to take advantage of the offer. The Rivington is part of restaurant group Caprice Holdings and counts The Ivy, J. Sheeky and the original Rivington in Shoreditch among its sister restaurants.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend filled with feasting, family, and friends. I know we certainly did! We celebrated Easter as well as our little Reese’s 4th birthday. On Saturday we went to “The County,” where Grant grew up, to visit his dad (Grandpa), step-mom Kathy (Grammy), and family at the farm.

We made black pepper tofu from Yotam Ottolenghi’s Plenty last Friday night – it was rich, sticky and flavoursome. The recipe can be found on the Guardian’s New Vegetarian blog, and we followed it to the letter. Interestingly, the Guardian photo looks nothing like the photo in the book (which our pic above closely resembles) – perhaps the editors felt an all black dish might not appeal?
When I was finalizing the recipes in The Perfect Scoop , I was conflicted about something sweet. Even more so than I usually am. Some might call it a character flaw, but for me it’s normale .
