Fried Potato Salad at King and Duke Buckhead, Atlanta

image

I was not expecting this when the waiter told me to try the potato salad. This definitely put potato salad on its head. I was actually impressed. King and Duke has a great ambiance and is a twist on modern American restaurant. Make sure you make a reservation, it gets pretty crowded after 6pm.

Non-Stick Pans to be reserved for cooking eggs…

image22

While visiting a relative’s home out-of-town, for the first time in a long time I made a steak in a non-stick pan. I was not able to get that nice brown sear without draining the steak of its juices.

Why? Because a non-stick pan is not meant to sear; it’s made with the intention of not browning or “burning” so that crisp you see on a fish at restaurants is unlikely.

Either way, I was still able to maintain as much of the juices as I could by finishing it in the oven and maintaining a medium well temperature (although I prefer medium or medium rare). On the other hand if you are making eggs, pancakes or things that are to not be browned a non-stick pan is optimal.
