Lil bit of life!

Hola!!

Wednesday afternoon here in Buenos Aires, and while the bread rises and Stevie Nicks fills the restaurant, I’ve managed to somehow carve out a few minutes to give you a bit of what’s going on here in my new crazy life.

First off, Wednesdays are my new Mondays. And I must admit it’s quite strange on Wednesdays when I see friends and my BA family and one of the first things out my mouth is, ‘how was your weekend?’. I get a lot of funny looks these days…

Lots of new things these days truthfully!

Where shall we begin?

Reflections

It’s Sunday morning (well, half past one actually) and I have a bit of Liza time before I have to head to NOLA. We had our first rain last night in a long time and there is something a bit serene about this particular Sunday morning. I am very much appreciating stillness these days!

My favorite piece of NOLA Gastropub press

On Sunday we were featured in the local paper.

I realized this at around 5pm and couldn’t hit the streets in search for a copy as the kitchen was already in full swing for Happy Hour service at NOLA Gastropub.
Luckily the journalist tweeted a link and I hurried to the computer, sat down with my hot lemon water and gave it a read.
It’s written so well, it almost seems like a tale.

I love it and thought you might enjoy it too, so here it is-

the smaller details of NOLA Gastropub

Hola!!

The red beans are on the stove along with the gumbo for tonights service and I have a twenty minute break before I have to get back in the kitchen so I thought I’d throw a post up real quick, as I’m really excited about our latest addition to the local, and you know me and excitement, I need to let it out….!

Readers, meet G.

June 26, last Beer Night at NOLA

NOLAchef-beer-night-broeders-artesanal-beers-argentina

Hola friends!

Quick and last minute note that tonight will be our last Beer Night with Broeders Artesnal here in Palermo.

But don’t worry!

It’s because we’re so close to opening the gastropub and we need to stock up on as much craft beer as possible!

The past year has been a blast working with brothers Marce and Ticol (aka Francisco) on Thursday nights. We experimented with countless fried chicken & biscuit recipes as well as sampled some of their interesting brews such as Golden Rosemary, Basil IPA and Pecan Stout.

Fall sweet potato & sage soup

NOLAchef-sweet-potato-herb-soup-buenos-aires-fall

New soup recipe! She’s healthy and practically vegan!

Ticol and I have been such little gordos lately.

Burgers, pork milanesas, asados, empanadas, it’s just been so easy when you’re wearing tights and oversized sweaters.

Sunday night we were adamant about a ‘light dinner’ as our bodies couldn’t handle anything heavy, especially more meat.

I wound up making this soup with leftover chicken stock and a quick run to the verdulería (vegetable stand).
