Crispy Baked Patatas Bravas
Crispy Baked Patatas Bravas

Last week I spent an inordinate amount of time working on a chilled sugar snap pea and mint soup. I worked and reworked the recipe, added ingredients, took away ingredients and no matter what I did, it just didn’t taste right. I wanted it to taste bright and smooth and like spring and it was […]
