The Dish

Hi all,

This blog has been started purely for lovers of food. I love everything about food, from the sense of accomplishment you have when you create a truly fantastic dish, to the way you feel when you take the first bite. I will use this blog to discuss ingredients, recipes, and restaurants. So, let's get started.

Recipe of the Day:

Pumpkin and Goat's Cheese Lasagne
by Nigella Lawson

While I was wasting time on Twitter today, I discovered a new website called cookstr.com. This website highlights recipes, chefs and food blogs. They highlighted a recipe by Nigella Lawson called "Pumpkin and Goat's Cheese Lasagne." Now, maybe this caught my eye because all I have been able to think about lately is Italian food, or maybe it was because of the interesting ingredients. Nonetheless, I liked it. The recipe includes some of my favorite things: sage, pumpkin, goat and ricotta cheeses, and, of course, nutmeg. The link for the recipe is below.


Restaurant of the Day:

Nida's Thai on High, Columbus, Ohio
976 N. High Street
Columbus, OH 43201

I was attending the infamous gallery hop in Downtown Columbus when a friend suggested we stop for dinner at Nida's. Being a lover of Thai food and sushi, I was immediately game. It was predictably busy for a Saturday night in Columbus, but we went to the bar for drinks and were seated within 30 minutes of arriving. Not only was the food amazing, but the drinks were out of this world. The staff was friendly and efficient and very helpful when giving suggestions for dinner options. My picks and the website are below.

My Picks:
Basil and Cucumber Martini
Phuket Punch
Pad Thai

Also, you absolutely cannot go wrong with their sushi!


Alright, although I would love to post some more food-related things today, I actually need to go get something done. Comment if you have any questions or thoughts!
