Cantabric Sole Ritz (Stuffed Sole Ritz)


Granted I didn’t follow this recipe precisely to order, using frozen over fresh sole and laying the stuffing on as a crust instead of sandwiching it between two filets. However, I think I got a pretty good idea of what this dish was trying to achieve. Not spectacular and missing a sauce but still pretty enjoyable, if forgettable.


Chicken Pepitoria (Spicy Chicken Fricassee)


A peculiar and somewhat forgettable dish from Spain. For the life of me, I can’t figure out what’s so supposed to make this dish ‘spicy,’ as aside from some black pepper, there isn’t really any heat in the dish at all. Sadly, this dish is one of the few that Vincent did not grace with a blurb, so I shall never know.

Paella a la Valenciana

This over top the paella recipe was by far the most expensive disaster dish, I have yet to make. To be sure, I can attribute that to some lack of cuisine acumen on my part but for the most part, despite a cornucopia of ingredients, the one ingredient that would have actually improved this dish was just some spicy sausage. Move on, friends. There’s better paella waiting for you somewhere else.
