It is always exciting when you open your eyes a bit and find something very interesting right next to you. Like some people, that, when they are in their thirties, fall in love with some that they knew since elementary school. For me, it was way more simple then that. I found leek. Or at least, I found out that there was actually something quite exciting about leek.
Last week was the first week of Fashion madness AW10. Berlin had Bread and Butter and Paris had its mens week. I escaped Berlin and wend to Paris (with a stop over in Brussels…). On Saturday night I went to the Dunhill show where Kim Jones is creative director. Very nice. Especially the styling of the show. The show was in Palais de Tokyo and I love that place. My friend Katarina and I decided to stay afterward and have dinner. I asked for the waiters recommendation and on my plate I got… leeks. But wow!! I never had them like this. They were grilled in the oven with just salt and pepper and olive oil and served warm. On top there was an amazingly fresh mozzarella (cold). I must say I barely remember the main course. But I think I had beef tartar.
Today I tried to boost myself with a re-make. It was just as easy as it looked and they tasted just as good as Saturday night. The trick is, as always, to pick the best olive oil, salt jada jada. Simple dished demand the best ingredients.
