Kitchen Roundup: July

Here it is, my monthly photo food diary! What I made, what I ate…and everything in between. Enjoy!

 Wild blackberries growing in my mother’s front yard, a sure sign that Summer is in full swing.
 Another Summer treat: Heirloom Tomatoes with Burrata, Basil and Fleur de Sel!
 Loads of fresh, ripe peaches nestled into a pie and ready to bake in the oven.
 Some simple, seasonal hors d’oeuvres: Figs with Goat Cheese Mousse & Lavender Honey and Prosciutto, Melon & Fresh Mozzarella brochettes with Basil-Mint Oil.
 Potato Pancakes with Lemon Caper Creme Fraiche and Smoked Salmon, YUM!
 How gorgeous are these local abalones I found at Whole Foods???
 Whoops.
 A little twist on Bruschetta: Strawberry-Basil with Goat Cheese and Balsamic Reduction.
 Arancini with Lemon Saffron Aioli…if you don’t know about these little fried balls of risotto goodness, you’re missing out!
 One of my favorite Peruvian dishes called papas a la huancaina. The sauce, which is TO DIE FOR, is made from spicy aji amarillo and fresh white cheese. 
Macaron Mecca: Chantal Guillon in San Francisco.
 Swoon…
Happy Birthday Dad! What better way to celebrate than with friends, family and FOOD!
 Street food in my hometown courtesy of Chairman Bao: Pork Belly with Pickled Daikon and Miso Cured Tofu with Choy Sum.
 My first time trying Ethiopian food in Oakland, and it definitely won’t be my last!
