Eat Me: Short Rib Benedict At Little Red Wasp

Short Rib Benedictby Steven Doyle

The brunch menu as the Little Red Wasp in Fort Worth is pretty crave worthy. The cheddar chicken biscuit is tops in its game with a huge plateful sized slab of chicken sandwiched between that ethereal biscuit that is near lighter than air. It gives us all reason to make the drive to the downtown Fort Worth restaurant. The chilaquiles are also tops in their game. But what makes us truly lose control is the Benedict.    Continue reading

A Cheese You Will Love: Cowgirl Creamery’s Mt Tam

628x471by Steven Doyle

What weighs five ounces, is about an inch and half tall and is no more than five weeks old?  I can only think of one thing, the MT TAM from Cowgirl Creamery. This lush heavy butter fat cheese has a soft and very edible rind, slightly oozy in the center and will make you leap like a lord. Lords do leap quite a bit, and Mt Tam may very well be the reason why.

Cowgirl Creamery’s Mt Tam is arguably the finest example of a triple cream in the United States. It has a rich and buttery flavor with a natural essence of cremini mushrooms, a certain nuttiness from the aging, topped with a delicious lemony finish that pairs ever so wonderfully with your favorite bubbles. It is a festive cheese and it clings to a festive wine. But do not fear pairing with whatever works for you.

In the past few weeks we have enjoyed the cheese with a delicious 2015 Pinot Noir from MacMurray, and more recently with a Malbec. The Malbec had an assist from particularly beautiful and plump blackberries, which were on the sour side but played well into the hands of the wine and cheese combination. The MacMurray pairs well with most anything.   Continue reading

Maharaja Offers A Feast Fit For Kings

DSC04335by Steven Doyle

A happy find in Indian cuisine comes out of Plano and Fort Worth with a tiny restaurant called Maharaja. The very tidy and well appointed restaurant serves up a very fine version of both Northern and Southern Indian cuisine. That means the restaurant is strong for both vegetarians and omnivores. For the latter you will find beef, seafood, lamb and chicken dishes to satisfy those meaty urges, all in your favorite comfort sauces which is perfect for the turning weather. The dishes will definitely warm you up on a breezy Fall evening.

You will want to start your evening off with a cup of madras soup, the coconut-tomato soup with a hint of spice. This is definitely the ultimate in tomato soup. Also the raita salad is particularly cooling when set against some of the spicier dishes. This is made with fresh yogurt, whipped and blended with shredded cucumber, tomatoes and chopped cilantro.   Continue reading
