Today is market day, so let's see what is in season, get some ideas, come home and cook. Skip to step 17 to start the actual guide.
Wake up early. But not too much.
Check the weather
Get out and get some greenies. They don't accept plastic
Put some music on and enjoy the ride
Union Square Greenmarket
Soup, roasted, gnocchi (again?)
Start to get ideas
Sunchokes, fork crushed.. Yum.
Baked apples with Port wine
Asparagus, poached egg, bacon... Classic
Ask questions... Sounds good?
Get three containers lined up
Flour. Season with a little salt
Beat. (you can add buttermilk for a better result)
Breadcrumbs or cornmeal
Season with whatever you like
Get the tomato ready
Peel.. Or not.
Sprinkle with salt for a couple of minutes
Cut into shapes
Use tweezers, chopsticks or hands
Don't be scared to get a little "sucio". Just keep one hand for wet ingredients and other for dry ones
Lay them on a plate
Add oil to the pan
Get kitchen paper ready
Add the tomatoes when the oil is hot enough
Put the heat on medium so the temperature holds.
Place them on the plate with the paper so the excess of oil gets absorbed
Slice them to get different shapes. Salt and pepper.
Add some mustard
Chop some dill
Here you go. Snack.
