My kid is fastidious. He won’t eat anythingand everywhere. And there’s no way one can persuade him. And should I?
- 500 g potato
- 5 g coriander
- 3 g garlic cloves
- 3 g paprika
- 2 g chilly pepper
- 2 g black pepper
- 5 g salt
- 3 g dry ginger
- 3 g thyme
- Wash potatoes well and dry with a paper towel.
- Bring to boil 3l of water in a saucepan, and cut potatoes in segments.
- Blanch for 5-6minutes.
- Then drain to get rid of extra water.
- Mix potatoes with spices, thinly chopped garlic and olive oil in a dripping-pan.
- Bake in an oven, previously heated to 220°C (428°F) for 5-18 minutes.
- And serve immediately.
He also has his own criteria of what is edible. He can refuse from eating some tasty food, just because he doesn’t like its colour or the way it looks, or because it’s slippery and he doesn’t like the combination of ingredients.
In general, if not to speak about short-term “Oh, my God, the kid is hungry!”, his choice of products is quite normal and right. Perhaps, his child’s sense, which hasn’t been spoiled by fast food and desire just to fill up his stomach suggests the body what to eat.
The point of my story is that it’s funny to take my kid as a taster to different restaurants and cafés. He will definitely eat some simple and clear dish, and will refuse from something sophisticated and complicated. And my experience shows that the simpler the dish is, the better it tastes.
And now back to business. Is there something interesting that was opened in Odesa while I was absent during all these months?
