Marigold Kitchen, at Home

Bashful3 | Feb 4, 2006 09:29 AM

Be careful what you wish for! Having wonderful food during my first two weeks of recuperation after knee surgery didn't have any possible downside in my mind, but guess what? Once I start cooking again, I'm going to have to try harder. My hambergers and canned peas hubby got converted into a Chowhound by Marigold...

Many of the wonderful dishes they prepared for us were done sous-vide style--chicken, duck, beef ribs, marinated lamb. So easy to just finish off to crispness in the oven--tender, juicy, impossible to replicate by home cooking. Veggies unusual--cardoon, cabbage stuffed with wonderful veggie filling, neat starches including a potato terrine, rice with sumac, cous cous with plump raisins, unusual citrussy salad dressings; salad of thinly sliced cucumber/fennel bulb; lamb shanks with rich gravy; and even crepes with what seems to be ricotta/guava jelly filling. Yum. And how could I forget the soups? Carrot/cashew; chestnut, barley and mushroom, french lentil--each very special.

This was the treat that keeps on giving. No problem when I want to go out to Marigold for dinner in the future--hubby will be eager. Their food has a high "surprise" quotient, even when apparently very simple.
