Mushrooms and toasted Brioche

Mushrooms and toasted brioche sounds awfully pretentious doesn’t it? Well, take mushrooms on toast and you can literally wake me in the middle of the night with it.

rib eye

Rib eye or ribeye steak is a man steak. Big, bold and packed with flavor, because it is cut from the center of the prime rib roast. Rib eye is my new favorite cut of steak. Fillet, of course it is by far the most tender cut to grill, but to me, it lacks character […]
