Sofrito Magic

February 16th, 2021 § 0 comments

“Sofrito” is the delicious sauce that is the flavorful base for Italian and Spanish cooking. BSK’s sofrito consists of chopped onions, garlic, parsley and spices sauteed in extra virgin olive oil. When making BSK’s excellent Spanish cod, potato, onion and tomato stew, BSK adds chopped peppers and tomatoes (or tomato paste) to the sofrito. Last night, BSK made an extraordinary sofrito which turned a platter of linguine and scallops into a memorable feast. The sofrito had additions of anchovies, chopped fennel, white wine and Japanese bonito flakes. This multi cultural sofrito was a winner. HG had two very large helpings. BSK’s gentle searing of the scallops turned them into lush sea morsels. HG genuflects before BSK: The woman is world’s best home cook (daughter Lesley R. is close runner up. SJ and wife, Maiko, don’t count since they are food professionals. Viva!! Freeman Shokudo)
