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!

    Hi Rachael! Glad to know we’ll learn more about Daisy – I know her show is getting great reviews around the blog-o-sphere, and I have enjoyed several episodes.

    I’m also enjoying your blogroll on the left-side of the screen. That your doing? It would be nice to know what are the real bloggers and tweaters to avoid the fakers. Really nice, and thank you.

    Yeah! I’m really excited about our “Meet Daisy” piece (it’ll launch right before her next round of shows premiere sometime in July)..I think it’s always nice to learn a little bit about the chef you’re downloading recipes from..ya know?

    And YES! I just added the blogroll to the left this week, in fact. Nice observation, Lana! I realized that all of those links are bookmarked on my browser…so I don’t know why we didn’t have them up earlier for everyone to access easily. Duh. I’ll keep adding more as the authentic blogs and tweets are confirmed!

    I was just looking for this information for some time. After six hours of continuous Googleing, at last I got it in your site. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that don't rank this kind of informative websites in top of the list. Normally the top sites are full of garbage.
