My goal of having 6-pack abs for my honeymoon apparently won’t be met by reducing my intake of foie gras and pork belly alone. In an effort to trick myself into eating healthier, I’ve been experimenting with other white meats.
You’ll need your large cast iron skillet for this neo-mesa cornbread. Although I’m not the first to pile toppings onto cornbread, I’ve never before seen a layer of goat cheese inside. Perhaps KFC will pick up my idea and run with it, but in the meantime you can surprise your guests with this rustic yet upscale rendition of a barbecue favorite.
I really love playing host, but let’s face it, some nights I just want to keep things simple. Here’s a great menu for a casual evening among friends, where we’ve put down our saffron and beurre blanc and picked up only the most basic ingredients: salt, pepper and olive oil. You’ll be amazed at how satisfying such an elementary meal can be.
