Plenty. More.

Eggplant CheesecakeInspired once again by the “vibrant vegetable cooking” found in Yotam Ottolenghi’s PLENTY MORE, ChezHelvetica embarked on a culinary journey that led straight to heaven. Proof? Witness Eggplant Cheesecake. Roasted Eggplant stuffed with Baby Plum Tomatoes, freshly plucked Oregano, and a mixture of Feta and Cream Cheeses, Cream and Eggs created a truly celestial cloud of savory delight. A brush of Za’atar – a mixture of herbs and sesame seeds – finished the dish, adding the excitement of the Middle East. A bit more down to earth, yet divine in its own right, Grilled Steak Salad joined the table. Grilled Omaha Steaks Sirloin Steak and Red and Sweet Onions topped organic Arugula, also making a voyage to the Middle East with the addition of Figs and a pinch of Cinnamon to the Worcestershire Sauce Dressing. Garlic Focaccia Bread (left a tad too long under the broiler) and velvety Joel Gotts Zinfandel completed this delightful course. Häagen-Dazs Chocolate Ice Cream, crowned with Strawberries and Almonds, was the final present of a very “In The Present” evening!
