A Traditional Italian Dish

April 24, 2012 by Joan Nova in "Foodie" Activities, Blogging, Italian, Plating/Presentation | 11 Comments

Guest posting is a natural phase of food blogging because that’s what the community is all about … sharing.

It’s an honor to be asked to imprint your work on someone’s blog because it’s their way of saying “I like what you do and I’d like to introduce my readers to you.” By accepting the offer, it’s your way of saying “ditto, right back at ya“.

Laz (lower left) and I have a little bit of history. I’ve followed his blog for a while now and about 3 months ago I became a member of  the 5 Star Culinary Makeover Cooking Group which he co-hosts … then, we met in person for a 3-hour fab tasting lunch in Miami … and, now, we’re collaborating as teammates for our next cooking club challenge. But, it’s hush-hush and I can’t tell you anything about that … yet.

When I visit Laz’s blog, I laugh at his irreverent bad boy language and admire his sophisticated (even delicate) artistic plating. So when he asked me to guest post, I knew I wanted to try to do something ‘al estilo Lazaro‘. I hope he likes this.

To see the rest of this post, please visit Lazaro Cooks.

And while you’re there, take a look around at some of his work. He does things like this very inspired remake of  bacon + eggs which he made for a cooking club challenge.
Laz is also a big fan of fish and frequently posts dishes like this olive oil-poached barramundi with insalata caprese.

NOTE: Some recipes found on FOODalogue are offered without ingredient quantities. They're meant as a guide to food pairings and techniques to be experimented with … in your own kitchen … to your own spice and taste levels … to your preferred portion sizes … and to however many people you’re cooking for. A perfect meal has multiple levels of flavor and textures, bright colors and tastes, and healthy(ish) choices. It's all about enjoyment. Enjoy the process, the presentation and the just rewards...eating!

  1. Cool presentation and very artistic. Had me drooling. Foods appear to be more delicious when presented with a touch of art and class. =) recently posted..Petite Rose CakesMy Profile

  10. The barramundi dish sounds fantastic – it’s a great tasting fish to start with, but that recipe sounds delicious
