This past summer, we went to Miami where my sister got engaged to the love of her life.
And to celebrate the big day, we went to dinner at The Bazaar By José Andrés — a restaurant that partly specializes in molecular gastronomy alongside traditional Spanish tapas.
We were thrilled about the whole concept of molecular cooking and so we started off with some terrific cocktails followed by appetizers, some of which looked like they were prepared at a science laboratory.
In addition to the above dishes and many others, one of them was Stuffed Piquillo Peppers which was not on the menu but it was a chef’s recommendation for our little “veggie” group at the table. So we went with it. It probably was the best decision of the night. All of the tapas were very good, but none like the Stuffed Piquillo Peppers. That being said, I had to try making them at home. Here’s my take on it — it was very similar to the original, if not better. Or maybe even.
For the peppers
6 – piquillo peppers/sweet mini peppers
2 oz – plain goat cheese
a drizzle of olive oil
For the Sweet Balsamic
1/4 cup – balsamic vinegar
1/8 cup – brown sugar
