Thang came again, this time to celebrate his birthday and start a New piece for clinic. And like clockwork, we cooked, played cards and of course scrabble. What is the most genuine thing for me and my time with him, is his ability to push me outside of the world of ballet. His ex is a culinary master, and thang knows I love cooking so he constantly pushes me to do bolder things in the kitchen. This weekend I attempted beef tartar… trimming the meat myself and doing everything from my own recipe. I also did a salmon in an Algerian/Moroccan inspired sauce. I am pretty pleased.
