The Best Thing I Ever Ate - Appetizer

A couple of years ago I was lucky enough to go to Michael Symon's restaurant Lola in Cleveland, Ohio. I went with my sister, my niece and my aunt and we had such a wonderful time. The one thing I had been looking forward to from the moment I knew we were going was the Beef Cheek Pierogies. As you know from a previous post, I love pierogies. You may also remember I love beef cheek, so this is the most amazing combination of both. The sauce is a horseradish cream sauce, which is another of my favorite flavors. It was like he made this dish just for me!

If you find yourself in Cleveland I cannot recommend Lola enough, you really must go!

  7. OMG, that looks good! I worked at a high end restaurant as a manager. On the nights I worked I could have anything I wanted off the menu (well, except for lobster!) but I could have a ribeye steak with a peppercorn sauce, or crab cakes - but I always at the goat cheese appetizer.

    Two garlic crostini's topped with breaded and baked goat cheese, on the bottom was a thin layer of proscuitto and then it was drizzled with a balsamic reduction - my mouth is drooling just thinking about it!
