As part of Boston’s Taste of Iceland event (March 11-17!), there was much insanely delicious food and drink at Rustic Kitchen for a kickoff on Tuesday. Chef Thorarinn Eggertsson of Orange served up melt-in-your-mouth deliciousness, although he left out crazier proteins Icelanders eat. Here are my belated photos from the event, which I attended courtesy of the ineffable Christine of Citysearch. It made me miss my trip to Iceland a bit as I reminisced about the whale steak and rotten shark I ate there, along with things like geothermal pools and lack of daylight. And great exchange rates.
Oh hey, blog readers, I’m going to cook next week during my spring break! I’m a little concerned, however – the kitchen I’m working with has like, two pots. No baking sheet. A toaster oven. I mean, I got dishware. Sort of. And cups and glasses. I opened the fridge and was greeted with nothing more than Shaw’s brand frozen waffles and chicken fries. Seriously – chicken fries!
I don’t even want to open the Chinese takeout carton. I imagine it’s where MSG goes when it’s been very, very naughty. The dry goods cupboard isn’t much better. I’ve exhausted half a can of barbecue Pringles.
What’s an aspiring home cook to do? Domestic bliss or wrestling with the prospect of no rice cooker… potato ricer… sous vide… Maybe I should start small and boil some pasta. I think I can do that.
Seriously, if you have any recipes, please send them to me.
