Have a Memorable Memorial Day Weekend!

Here's wishing all of you a happy and healthy Memorial Day weekend. I have no way of knowing what you have planned, but I assume it involves food.

Be kind to all those rusty grill chefs, its b
een months since they've rocked the bbq tool belt (that's a great look).

It's your solemn duty to pretend to like everything no matter how black and dry. It's our ability to spare the cook's feelings that separates us from savages.

The lovely plate you see here was our lunch today, and was every bit as delicious as it looks. The lamb steaks were marinated in yogurt, garlic, and herbs - then charcoal grilled and serve on some homemade whole-wheat flatbread (also grilled), topped with wild arugula and a minted honey sherry vinaigrette. It was heavenly.

Despite a very nice Frick Syrah, I was able to film the lamb steaks and the honey sherry vinaigrette recipes, so stay tuned for those. In the meantime, enjoy!

Happy Memorial day to you as well Chef John. I'm going to make the sweet potato "fries" on your american food site, and maybe the 5 spice carrots (gong) tomorrow as well. Should go well enough with Bratt's in the bratt-tub and some well seasoned fresh-ground burgers.

Holidays are cheatin days on this diet :-) I've lost 35 lbs in 8 weeks, I deserve to cheat a little!

Chef, you amaze me. I didn't even know that a lamb steak, cut from a leg of lamb, even existed until earlier that day as I was looking up lamb recipes online. It was just my usual check-in at your site where I saw that you posted that photo. And FYI - the same thing happened with the eggplant parm recipe and the Vietnamese Pho do you know what I want to eat, Chef?
