Fun Food Flags! Can you guess which countries are represented? Hint: The food used to make the flag is usually associated with that country…

"It’s not about passion. Passion is something that we tend to overemphasize, that we certainly place too much importance on. Passion ebbs and flows. To me, it’s about desire. If you have constant, unwavering desire to be a cook, then you’ll be a great cook. If it’s only about passion, sometimes you’ll be good and sometimes you won’t. You’ve got to come in every day with a strong desire. With passion, if you see the first asparagus of the springtime and you become passionate about it, so much the better, but three weeks later, when you’ve seen that asparagus every day now, passions have subsided. What’s going to make you treat the asparagus the same? It’s the desire."

Plans for the night just switched from a bowl of leftover chili before institute class to the Austin Film & Food Party at the Driskill Hotel. Booyah!

See you there? There will be a CHEESE BALCONY (not a balcony made of cheese, but still). I have a feeling I’ll be hanging out there a good part of the evening.

There’s a cheese balcony?! This night keeps getting better and better.

(This got requested over on facebook, so I thought I’d share it here, too.)
Veggies:
5-6 red potatoes
1 cucumber, sliced super thin
3 small ripe hass avocados, cut in chunks

Boil red potatoes until soft, but not, like, too soft. While you’re waiting for the water to boil, make the dressing so the flavors can have time to marry. (Insert joke here how at least something in your life deserves the chance to get married. Rimshot!) Drain the potatoes and set aside. Slice the cucumber as thin as possible. Cut up the avocados and set aside. Save this step for last. Seriously, if you’re planning on leftovers, just add the avocados on top and don’t mix it in, because it looks weird the next day, even though it still tastes amazing.

Dressing:
2 Tbs Dijon Mustard
3 Tbs Olive Oil 
3 Tbs Red Wine Vinegar
1 Tbs finely minced shallot
2 tsp fresh rosemary (this is best if you steal it from the plant in front of your adjacent apartment building)
Fresh ground pepper and salt to taste

Put the mustard in a bowl and slowly drizzle in the EVOO while whisking the two together. Hooray for emulsifying! (Sidebar: Doesn’t Rachael Ray realize that it takes just as many syllables to say EVOO as it does to say olive oil? What the heck?) Once the oil and mustard are mixed, add in the shallots, rosemary, and salt and pepper. Mix in the red wine vinegar and let the dressing sit in the fridge while the potatoes boil. When the potatoes are ready, put the veggies in a large bowl and pour the dressing over top. Gently toss it all together and enjoy! Serves four.

Seriously, you guys, dinner was insane.

This class is all about cheeses—soft cheese, hard cheese, everything cheese.
