Just another BBQ on a gorgeous Victoria Day long weekend. I had some chicken breast with butter chicken spices and drumsticks with Bone Suckin’ seasoning and rub along with my famous mashed potatoes and some sauté fresh mushrooms. We ate three times and we couldn’t decide which one tasted better.
I’m so glad I had the brilliant idea to make Chicken Fricassee for dinner few weeks ago. We were so pleasantly surprised with the taste and the flavour of this fabulous dish. I will do it again and this is a promise. The mashed potatoes was just a perfect match for this exquisite dish.
I don’t know about you, but I like Chef Gordon Ramsay, his style, his recipes and his cooking, even if I hate his show….lol. I chose this recipe from his repertoire and prepare it for the Orthodox Easter, but didn’t have the chance to post it back then. The Leg of Lamb has a very interesting flavour and the taste was amazing.

Very easy to make and extremely tasty, the quinoa salad is one of my lovely wife favorite. This time I used organic tricolor Royal quinoa, mixed greens, some peppers (use any color you want), avocado, celery, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, fresh basil, garlic&hot pepper infused olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette. I think the most important ingredients in a salad are the oil and the vinegar. You have to use a good balsamic vinaigrette and a quality virgin oil. I know, they are expensive, but the difference they make in a salad is huge.

One day I was thinking what to prepare for dinner and I remembered that I didn’t cook any Romanian dishes for quite a while. Having limited time, I chose one of the easiest recipe without spending too much time or money. It is so simple, that you’ll need just some polenta and some fish to fry. I used a very nice and thick piece of tilapia bought fresh from Metro in Richmond Hill, fried it in some oil, cooked a polenta in few minutes and the last important thing and mandatory for an authentic Romanian fish meal is the garlic.
Finally I’ve got my own domain www.ChefDoru.com. YEY!!! I’m so proud of it. I would like to thanks to all my followers, supporters, friends, occasional readers and specially to my gorgeous and lovely wife for all her support.
This is my third weekend at the trailer and I cooked some tikka-masala chicken breast which turned awesome.
I couldn’t resist not to do again the black cod marinated in miso after a recipe of Momofukufor2. Amazing taste and by far the best fish I’ve ever eat. Next week I will try to smoke some to see how turns out.
