This week I put a call out on Twitter for any chefs who wanted to send me pictures of their weekend specials with a promise to slap them up on the blog. Well, here are the two I got. Maybe I’ll get a bigger crop next week.
SoHo restaurant in Vinings sent this picture identified only as “fresh-off-the-tree peaches.” I spy with my little eye some greens, chives, nutmeats and some sort of dry, crunchy protuberances that may be dried peaches or fried wonton skins or even Japanese dried squid, though I highly doubt the latter. It looks tasty.
Chef Craig Richards at La Tavola Trattoria in Virginia Highland sent this lovely snap of a special he identifies as “baked pennoni, fennel sausage, heirloom tomatoes, béchamel and Thai basil oil.” That sure does look tasty, and I learned a new word: Pennoni! I’m assuming that they are very big penne or very small…um, never mind. Let’s go with big penne and say it looks might fine.
Chefs, keep your antennae out for the next specials shout out from my Twitter account.
TGIF. May your weekend be filled with peaches and pennoni.
