Burek-Borek-Budek-Banitsa-pie: Some little twists that ought to be documented for posterity:
Bobo Brazilian stew from a happy cow. Veggies coated in a delicious bath of coconut milk and dende oil.
The recipe calls for half dende and half olive, but its fantastic with just the first. Missing: Cilantro. That would have been a nice addition!
On a white sauce — parm/garlic — with a little mozzerella sprinkled atop for more better cheesiness. Fennel baked on, and a little raw added post render with the leaves.
Most marvelous, though pears scarcely there, skinned slim for concerns of proper sentiment — notably. Redressed while baking with more sauteed which would be the proper, thicker presentation proposition. A bit fussy as it were, though, with the sauce and all.
Also, balsamic reduction lightly drizzled over top.
Not failing — under duress and late hour: Diced potatoes — sautéed and tossed with chipotle, cumin, garlic powder, salt and oregano. Splendidly arrayed on corn tortillas with a little of Jen’s famous salsa, scrambled egg and cilantro. Cheese…
A fine, quick-ish feast after an afternoon carousing down in Hollywood. Off Hollywood. Actually, by a street called Hollywood.
A summary of everything…
