Look, I’m not saying I don’t like meat. Heck, I recently dropped $250 per person to eat steak in a Japanese basement. But the portions were small, the beef was psychotically good (deranged the senses), and it’s a holiday kind of thing.
Normally, it’s fish from NEW DEAL three times a week, a pasta, some chicken, etc.
OK, sure, a waygu burger from meat flown in from Allen Brothers, Snake River, or D’Artagnan, once a month, pan seared, and then broiled with Emmental.
But say there are guests…guests who thrive on beef nightly, guests who love pork…guests who want an immediacy of taste rather than a long finish, guests who do not ever eat fish…
It’s a problem to cook food that I don’t like to satisfy the hunger of carnivores.
Solution: David Chang’s fried chicken. Steam and then fry and toss with soy & vinegar and chopped ginger. And pray for an early night.
Did I mention the carnivores love desserts?!
