The Rule when Visiting a Chef’s House

by in View All Posts, May 12th, 2009

Do not, I repeat, do NOT eat before going to Daisy Martinez‘s home. On Friday we went to Daisy’s house to shoot an upcoming FN Dish video, Meet Daisy, for her new round of Viva Daisy! episodes. Within minutes of arriving to her house, Daisy had food in our bellies, and lots of it!

We literally had just put down our film equipment when she kindly lured us into her kitchen, telling us that she was in the midst of testing recipes for her new cookbook. When we told her that we’d eaten lunch before coming over, Daisy made this adorable face (left) and exclaimed, “Don’t you know you’re not supposed to eat before coming over to my house?” Listen….when a chef says, “try my food and tell me what you think,” I’m always a willing participant! Needless to say, I made room in my stomach.

Before we knew it, we were devouring: apricots with a cream cheese almond moose and pistachio topping, fresh ceviche, fried provolone cheese, oxtails (cooked for 5 hours), a jicama and pear salad, smoked trout with capers and orange segments…and to wash it all down, a killer Bloody Mary (but just a sip….viewers need not worry that the video we shot will still be in focus).

To get all of these recipes, you have to wait until the book’s release next Mother’s Day (I promise it will be worth the wait), but in the meantime, you can nosh on some of her recipes here!

Daisy, I’ve learned my lesson. I promise the next time I come over, I’m bringing an empty stomach!

-Rachael, The FN Dish
