Okay, after eating lean and mean all week, it is time to get serious. We are having 5-Spice pan-roasted duck breast with basmati rice and stir-fried green beans with onion, garlic, and soy sauce, paired with ... a red wine, on which I have yet to decide. Any suggestions? Normally, I would go for a pinor noir, but I haven't found one I like here.

How about a Merlot from Ticino?

Re: Tonight's dinner?

I actually just tried that a couple of nights ago when I was out with a friend and was very pleasantly suprised. That sounds like a perfect match. Many thanks for the input!

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Pan fried polenta cakes (flavoured with parmesan, basil and parsley) with mushroom ragout and crisp brussel sprouts.

Ended up a bit too salty (over seasoned) and used a bit too much oil in the ragout. Needed a good green tea and a tall glass of water after that one.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Artichoke stuffed with breadcrumbs and parsley seasoned with lemon juice and salt, then baked in the oven. Served with a side of blanched brussel sprouts and accompanied with burrata.

First time I've ever prepared an artichoke and eaten it "peasant style" (i.e. picked off the outer leaves, eaten the flesh on the leaf and then discarded it). Cutting off the top was easy once I used a serrated knife, but taking out the furry choke was a real pain in the neck.

...One needs a sandwich iron / sandwich toaster / panini press first...
Never owned one and still manage to make nice grilled sandwiches anyway. I just put the sandwich on a good, hot griddle and then add something weighty like another pan on top. Flip halfway through the cooking time. It's not quite the same as the presses that make nice sealed edges, but I don't have room in my kitchen for a sandwich press so I make do with what I have.

I have an "iron" thing with which I press the hamburgers. Works wonders, really.

Didn't try it when making sandwiches but sounds like a good idea.
