This is the true story of the culinary escapades of a real-life quichologist and my trusty sous-chef.
Set in our Brooklyn kitchen and peppered along the way with edible exploits, experiments and masterpieces, I hope you enjoy the ride...

Thai Seafood Noodle Salad
So.... maybe we are celebrating the summer months a bit prematurely. This would have been perfect on a hot July afternoon with a tall chilled pitcher of sangria... Instead we made it in April and ate it inside -- still tasty though. Vermicelli noodles, cilantro, shrimp, scallops and squid, all mixed up w chili peppers, fish sauce and lime juice and then sprinkled with peanuts. Don't be deceived though-- it looks easy and it is-- but prep time is insane and involved nearly all of our mixing bowls and pots! I have decided that being the master of my Thai kitchen involves at least 3 giant pots of simultaneously boiling water and multiple, simultaneous ice baths. The key word here: simultaneous. * Not recommended for kitchens with limited counter space ;)
