#FAIL…

Tonight I made something that failed… Actually, I didn’t just make one thing that failed, I made three things that failed. Mozzarella meringue: didn’t taste like mozzarella. Tomato Espuma: Too loose, didn’t stand up (literally). Bone Marrow Ravioli: WAY too rich- even for me!

 

Thankfully I was my only audience for this particular failure night… There was one success: the meyer lemon pasta came out awesome. So why blog about this minor disaster? Continue reading

Late night Ravioli

Late night…

It’s a late night of drinking… who dosen’t like that? I had a great time at Red Bull Music Academy listening to Questlove of The Roots band (rumor has it Jimmy Fallon was also in the house) but he didn’t introduce himself… RUDE. Also, Houston’s own Bun B was present. Ain’t no party like a Red Bull Party:)
