Chef's Opinion
After being in the food industry for 49 years, it gives me great pleasure to share some of my food.
Octopus stewed in Bordeaux and horseradish-mashed potatoes are delicious enough to serve as a meal by themselves. But serve them together with good sour-dough bread and nice leafy-greens salad, it makes a wonderful hit of a dish. It makes for a super delicious, beautiful, yet simple to prepare meal.
