I was invited to the Viking Appliance Holiday Party held at the Food Network studios in NYC. The food was delicious and we got to take a tour of the new set for $10 dinners w/ Melissa D'Arabian, which was GORGEOUS.
It looks like a real home, with sunny windows and gorgeous cabinets and appliances, but it's all just a set.
They served great passed hors d'oevres and had a beautiful cheese platter as well as a huge board of Italian cured meats.
I also got to meet Ted Allen from the Food Network show CHOPPED & Food Detectives (& Queer Eye for the Straight Guy). What a super guy!
For a quick dinner this week, I made Pam's delicious, Korean pork tenderloin.
To go with it, I cut up a head of cauliflower, roasted it at 425F with kosher salt and olive oil till brown.
Toss with a little more olive oil, a handful of golden raisins and a tablespoon of capers. Finish with a dash of crushed red pepper.
