Somewhere along the line I lost a taste for roasted peppers. Same with sundried tomatoes and even balsamic vinegar. Well, I didn’t cool on the balsamic for long (I was just tired of it being overused) while I’ve never regained a desire to eat sundried tomatoes. But roasted peppers really are delicious and it was the long break away from them that made me realize how much I enjoy them.
Who better than the Goddess Alexandra to bring it all back home?
Sure, this is out-of-season but hell, you can still find a decent eggplant around. And damn, if this just wouldn’t hit the spot right about now. Alexandra Cooks does Chez Panisse’s Eggplant, caramelized onion and tomato pasta.
Man, this woman Alexandra is my hero. How’s bout brown butter brownies with sea salt? Hell, yes, please.
