What makes your mouth water?
Food cravings are soo kooky. For me personally, I think a well executed tarte tatin does it for me as a sweet, mouthwatering treat. As far as a savory is concerned, I have a few more:
-Crispy homemade taco (homemade corn tortilla) with succulent meat-juices that drip out
-Juicy porterhouse steak cooked medium/medium rare
-The roasted chicken I made last weekend - stuffed a butter/herb salve under the skin on top of the breast and filled the cavity w/ sliced sweet onion wedges, celery sticks, Italian parsley, lemon wedges, and a healthy pour of EVOO
-A crepe filled with butter and a lemon simply syrup, folded into a triangle and dusted w/ powdered sugar
What do you think is mouthwatering??????
A fresh crab sandwich on sourdough bread and hot lobster bisque soup bought right on the wharf in S.F. Also, a really good creme brulee. Garlic mashed potatoes. This delicious dish of halibut cheeks that I had while in Seattle. They were lightly breaded, fried and then topped with an incredible champagne sauce. Can't find halibut cheeks here in Sacramento!
Oh...those halibut cheeks sound amazing.
Speaking of bisque, I made an amazing crab bisque as a starter for my roasted chicken. I got the recipe from the Williams-Sonoma Christmas cookbook and added a few things of my own to it (fresh corn kernels, a dash of hot sauce, and thyme). It was AWESOME.
its funny i see this post today, because im in the middle of a week long "fast-cleanse" and today i was at work and the hot lunch special was philly cheese steaks and everytime i had to scoop it out to make a sandwich i would curse to my co-worker that my mouth was literally watering. i have been fine the past few days, but the smell of that meat & cheese melted was killing me. i told her she better make something i hate tomorrow for hot special :)
