A traditional beef carpaccio consists of thin slices of lean fillet tenderloin topped with extra virgin olive oil, parmesan shavings, sea salt, and fresh ground pepper. This variation uses bresaola, a cured meat that is easier and quicker to prepare than raw tenderloin. It is also a delicious option if you are uncomfortable eating raw meat. I created this dish from what I had on hand one evening, and about six months ago, I saw a recipe for Bresaola Carpaccio in a French cookbook, topped with mixed greens tossed with vinaigrette dressing. Create variations of this idea to suit your taste. Add soup or salad and cheese for dessert, and you can make a three-course dinner without cooking.

I often cook "au pif," as we say in France, which means cooking without an exact recipe and by "feel" using your intuition.  You’ll often find guidelines in many recipes versus exact quantities.  Write to me here if you have any questions about the recipes.

    "We have made a lot of progress over here under your care. We are now all eating from the same “pot” which I was surprised how much my kids loved. They were so excited when I put the food in the middle of the table. They asked for it the next day, Can we do that special fancy dinner thing where we have a feast? It really is such a better ritual—passing the food around and all sharing from the same platter, a real game changer."
