QUICK BBQ SAUCE
Roasted Red Pepper paste
Cook down for about 15 minutes. Cool. Pour over chicken to marinate for 1 hour before roasting. Once the chicken is in, baste every 15-20 minutes with more sauce.
I can't wait to spatchcock a Turkey,
Cornish hen, Duck or other poultry.I'm going to close today with a few photos from a delightful new restaurant in Portsmouth, NH. I just returned to Ireland from a week long visit with my dear brother, Skip and his wife, Esther. Botanical is an upscale, hip, but casual gin bar serving 32 different varieties of gin along with just about any other spirit you might want, and of course, beer, wine and fabulous food!
|Botanica opened in January. It's located in a cool, funky converted warehouse.|
|Esther chose the Empress gin from Canada. |
It is royal blue when poured, but see what
happens once the tonic (or any acid) is added.
|...it turns purple!|
|Our server, Nick, was very knowledgeable about the gins.|
He suggested I try a traditional martinimade from Nolet's. This family owned distillery
in Holland has been making this gin for
over 325 years. It was clean, crisp and delicious!
|Skip selected 'The Last Word' made with Dry |
Town Gin, Green Chartreuse, Marachino Liqueur
and Lime. Very herbaceous!
I'M BACK IN SPIDDAL AND AS WE SAY HERE...SLAINTE!
UNTIL NEXT TIME...
