Espresso Rubbed Prime Rib

Espresso Rubbed Prime Rib

Deep and flavorful

Posted on April 18, 2017
Did you know that Prime Rib has a day to celebrate its delicious perfection? Well, I did, and in preparation for this hallowed day, on April 27th, I prepared some Espresso Rubbed Prime Rib for dinner. Rubbed with a combination of steak spice, salt, and espresso powder, then slow roasted on my Prestige PRO 500 Gas Grill, and seared to crispy perfection; this Prime Rib made a most delicious dinner.

Chocolate & Espresso Tart

Chocolate & Espresso Tart

Decadent, rich, and the perfect balance of bitter and sweet.

Posted on November 02, 2016
I made this Chocolate & Espresso Tart as part of a menu for some VIP’s. It seemed like the perfect finish to an already rich meal, consisting of an autumn salad and Duck Pizza. I had a little difficulty with the texture of the chocolate. So, remember when you make your own, to be careful when melting the chocolate, not to heat it too hot, too fast. Strange things happen to chocolate when it’s heated too fast. My chocolate went sort of sticky and doughy, but it can sometimes go grainy, or clumpy too. The secret to a silky and beautiful tart is patience when you melt the chocolate.
