For our second "farmer's market" weekend dinner, I took inspiration from France (I think).

Pan-roasted tilefish, fingerling potato and trumpet mushroom hash, pea-shoot microgreen salad with orange bell pepper. Lovely Pouilly-Fuissé to complete the meal.

Last night's "farmer's market" dinner was inspired by a trip to Sicily (to which we hope to return some day):

Fresh (locally made using bronze dies!) conchiglie pasta with Sicilian eggplant, orange cherry tomatoes, roasted garlic, and an entire bunch of scallions.

Sauce seasoned with crushed red pepper, rosemary (too much, but still delicious), and loads of flat-leaf parsley.

Bread made by a local bakery, and filled with briny green olives and Za'atar, and was soft and savory. Big winner. 1/2

Inspired by @ehashman I will also occasionally post food pictures here.

This was last weekend's shrimp curry (without the use of curry powder/blends) over rice with toasted coconut. Naan was store bought, I ran out of time to attempt my own... this time.

After making curry from scratch I now understand why Indian kitchens have such a large quantity and variety of spices.

Testing image attachment... if you don't see a cat picture I did something wrong!
