Brunch for guests:

 

--Figs topped with honey, fig balsamic vinegar, and mascarpone blended with vanilla extract

--Salad of frisee and roasted peaches

--Potato, mushroom, and onion frittata, with homemade pickled cilantro on the side

--Sourdough toast.  N tried to make bread with her new sourdough starter, but it didn't rise enough so we had to use commercial bread

 

Our friends brought a chocolate-cardamom cake with orange whipped cream for dessert.

Pickled cilantro? How, please.

I'd have to ask N.  She's been pickling all sorts of herbs--we've got pickled dill too.

This is what N said:

 

1. Chop cilantro very, very fine.

2. Massage a little bit of salt into the cilantro.

3. Put in canning jar and cover with just enough water to submerge it.

4. Weight the jar down but leave the lid on loosely. Put into a bowl because it'll spew liquid as it ferments.

5. Once liquid stops coming out, put the lid on tightly and put into the fridge.

I've edited the last step, because it should be when liquid stops coming out.

Per Thrillist, number 10 of Anthony Bourdain's 23 ESSENTIAL QUOTES ON FOOD, TRAVELING, AND LIFE is:

 

10. "THE WAY YOU MAKE AN OMELET REVEALS YOUR CHARACTER."

 

And for breakfast this morning, in honor of AB, though I don't really know what this reveals about my character, I made one. Actually, I made two; the other one was Significant Eater's, and it was what could be called more of a "country omelet" per Jacques, how she likes her eggs cooked. This one's for me - a classic French.

The almost perfect one-egg omelet (Jacques would use 3 (so would sneak, I'm sure)). Fresh herbs from a neighbor's balcony garden, including chives, tarragon and thyme, and a bissel of cheese - Cracker Barrel sharp!

I also love this with goat cheese.

I've always considered an omelet to be overcooked eggs, but that one is a thing of beauty, and I strongly suspect I would really enjoy it.

Omelettes are ever so much more than overcooked eggs. And they really DO reveal things about your inner self.

I was so positive Id prefer Jacquess country omelette. But in the event its classic French all the way.

Breakfast yesterday - a bit of a mashup...

I don't know what to call it. Potatoes, a little cheese, eggs. 

 

So it's not a tortilla, per se, and it's not a frittata, per se.

 

Torttata?  Fritilla? I can see it now...
