Food & Stuff

Jenaya, can you recommend an Oregon Pinot Gris under, say, 18 bucks?


I've been reading Saveur all day. No, I mean, I've been dissertating, but looking at Saveur during writing breaks. Yes, that's it.

So this is my invitation.

If you come to my house I will prepare one or several of the following things:

Ninton Boru (Fried Pork-wrapped Garlic).
Asparagus with fried (or poached) egg and pecorino cheese.
Manchego, sliced, with green apple and a dot of fig jam.
Aloo Tiki (Indian spiced potato cakes).
Som Tum (if you read this blog you should know what this is).
Whatever's in the Fridge Fried Rice
Posole Verde (if you bring me a chicken and some chiles pasillas).
Dan Dan Noodles
Bacon Sandwich (check the archives--Feb. 2004)
Billionaire's Bacon (Bacon, baked, with brown sugar, until crisp).
Rustic Apple Tarts


More to come.

Well, you know this now, but lest it look like I didn't respond, the answer is...

O'Reilly's Pinot Gris - $13, made by the fabulous David O'Reilly of Owen Roe. Delicious, crisp, lime zest and green apple.

Fried pork-wrapped garlic? My god. Could there be a more tempting sounding dish?

Julie said...

I am all about coming over. Are you serious?

M. said...

Can I come over?

Dude, do not offer what canst be thy will to be done. I want some green posole & will be in Oregon this summer. Never been there...

Julie and M.--

Come over if you'd like. Well, don't come over right now. I'm wallowing in despair and my fridge is mostly empty.


Why are you coming to Oregon in the summer? When? Details.

Diana Marie Delgado said...

Long story longer. So far, this is my plan. I won't be in NYC for much of the summer. Going back to Cali (remember how cool that LL Cool J video was?) to harass my family and take over my mom's couch.

A friend will be housesitting in Portland (are you there?). More details: July'ish.

Don't know much else. Just that, so far.

I live in Eugene, which is about 100 miles south of Portland. I visit Portland frequently, however.

We shall get together when you housesit.
