There are dishes I make often, every few months, that I know by heart and love. To me these are:
Gazpacho, in the summer it is delicious and slimming. Rataouille my Dad made this he told me it was easy. Now I can sling it with the best of them. For a personal touch I love to add a dash of black truffle oil. Salty and sour eggplant and chicken my own concoction. This dish originally was just fried eggplant with vinegar, lemon juice, dill and soy sauce but now is baked and has chicken thighs added. "Southeast asian pseudo fish curry stew" I use peanut butter, spices and coconut milk, but also corn and leeks usually I add chickpeas as well and some scallops or shrimp.
