I was planning on a French Friday post today, I started writing it earlier in the week, but I have been fighting a flu and not feeling well, so I have decided to go the easy route and share a food photo instead.
I love plantains. I learned a taste for them while living in Panama. My mom learned how to make them there and continued to make them from time to time as I grew up. I prefer the salty/savory variety but enjoy the sweet ones too. Just like the ones pictured above that I enjoyed with my best friend at La Costanera in Half MoonBay.
We had dinner at La Costanera along the coast which has the most breathetaking views and beautiful architecture, but I found the food a bit lacking. I guess I have been spoiled by the amazing Peruvian food that we can get in San Francisco, because I found everything subpar. Not thinking most people care while they eat there, they are too busy enjoying the coast.
Now, onto More Tasty Tidbits:
From White on Rice Couple: Tomato chutney grilled cheese sandwiches
From Tartine and Apron Strings: BELT my style (I like her style!)
From Love and Lemons: Edamame dumplings
From Lemon Fire Brigade: Salted mango sherbet with bruleed banana waffle cone chips and lemon caramel petals
From Chef in Training: Perfect chocolate cupcake with salted buttercream (oh yes!)
For my gluten-free friends:
From Tartlette: Lobster risotto with chantrelles
