Asian-Inspired Bison Meatball Appetizer Recipe Recipe

Asian-Inspired Bison Meatball Appetizer Recipe

09.16.14 by Jackie

I love bison meat. It's leaner than beef. You could always substitute ground beef for the bison, but this gave the dish a gourmet feel and it tasted fantastic with the flavors I selected for the meatball appetizers I prepared.

I flavored the bison meatball appetizers with fermented beans, five-spice powder, wasabi paste and paired them with a spicy peanut, cilantro pesto with coconut, ginger and cilantro honey.

I used the meatballs as a part of the dish I used for an audition I participated in last weekend. I'm happy to say I passed the first selection for a competitive TV cooking show. I'll let you know more about it soon.

Rib-Eye Steaks with Mushroom Coffee Sauce Recipe

Rib-Eye Steaks with Mushroom Coffee Sauce

08.21.14 by Jackie

I had prepared this very flavorful sauce for the Polar Production Team last week as a thank you for bearing with me during the long, sleepless hours of filming my first cooking series. On the last day, I packed a meal for each member revolving around my favorite insomniac's ingredient: coffee, of course!

I seared beautiful rib-eye steaks and paired them with a mushroom coffee sauce. The beef was such good quality that salt and pepper could have been sufficient but I jazzed it up with espresso coffee and flavored the sauce with the velvety, dark elixir.

My husband Lulu has gone on a business trip again for the week, so I don't cook as much while he's out of town. I simply boiled a whole chicken, nothing really fancy. 

Since a whole chicken was way too much for Aria and me, I cut part of the chicken into small pieces, added a few rice noodles, carrots, mushrooms and some snow peas. Nothing more, nothing less. I like the unpretentious and elementary feel of this dish. Baby Aria enjoyed it too. 

I'll keep the leftovers and make chicken salad tomorrow.

Methi Chicken Curry Recipe

I learned this recipe from my husband Lulu's aunt Huma. I call her Huma Chachi because she's Lulu's father's sister-in-law. She's an amazing cook and can put on the most wonderful feast in the twinkling of an eye.

Recently, Huma Chachi prepared chicken methi. It's an Indian chicken curry made with dried fenugreek leaves. Baby Aria loved it so much, I replicated the same recipe days later. It's best served with steamed basmati rice.

Bison Pita Burger Recipe Recipe

Bison Pita Burger Recipe

When my friend Alexia and her husband Olivier came to visit us from Paris, I was determined to show them the wide range of food available in beautiful, sunny California. First I took them to Costco; the size of the carts and the large portions of American products such as flour, eggs, sugar or the 1-gallon milk bottles were almost comical to them. 

We came across the meat section and Olivier said he had never tried bison meat. So today, preparing bison burgers made me a bit nostalgic for their visit last month. 

I made pita burgers and added a French twist by flavoring the ground meat with fresh sage and thyme. I also melted thin slices of Gruyère cheese on top of the burgers and finished the seasoning with fleur de sel Alexia had graciously given us. It was absolutely merveilleux, splendide! Miss you, guys!
