Back again

It looks like I haven’t been writing! I have, just not here: I’ve been a communications intern this fall at the Ontario Culinary Tourism Alliance, so have been working with the team and posting some articles there.

Thought it was about time I posted something here, though.

I’ll be hosting my parents and sister for Christmas, so there’s some serious cooking in my future — and I have to remember to order a turkey from George, owner of Meating on Queen (I love having a neighbourhood butcher!).

I bought a steak from him yesterday for dinner. I cooked it a perfect medium: just the right amount of pink in the middle.

NY Strip Steak, medium

My sister would probably have loved it. Alas, I prefer mine rare. Yep, I overcooked it. Oh well, I’ll get it right the next time, and have to remember how I did this so I can give Helen a steak cooked how she likes it.

About pat

Visual thinker, first got interested in digital imagery in the early days of Omni magazine, back when it used to review what had happened at SIGGraph. I worked in the 3D software field for 23 years. Lifelong enjoyment of gardening grew over time; I was a Master Gardener (briefly) and had a vegetable and herb allotment garden in Toronto to grow vegetables, as well as perennial gardens at home. Gardening and enjoying fresh produce also raised my interest in cooking with really good local food. As more restaurants in Toronto are offering local fare, I enjoy dining out and sampling the visions the different chefs have.
