This Sunday Nick and I, along with some friends, went to Peter Chang’s. In case you didn’t know, Peter Chang is a fabulous Schezwan style chef, who changes restaurants as often as most of us change our clothes (see below for a fabulous article by Calvin Trillin on Peter Chang)
We ate like kings: fried pork belly, eggplant fries, lamb cooked with peppers, mushrooms in a red almost curry, crunchy duck, a beef that was like sweet and numbing beef jerky. Everything was so good, I couldn’t wait to eat the specials this week!
Why you might ask?
Because weather Nick enjoys his food or not, he is generally inspired to make a version of something for the specials menu. Usually Nick snarls, I could make this better….and he does. But sometimes he thinks, this is so good, I’ll make my own version and be able to eat it for a week.
Alas, alack, though, with the snow, came no deliveries, and thus no new specials. So look for Chinese inspired goodness late in the week, so we can all dine like kings!
