I cringe when I see the Chicken Caesar because it represents an embrace of the misinformed and unimaginative American diner, who for better or worse continues to shape our menus.  I’ll have a salad, the reasoning goes, because it’s healthy (let’s disregard what it’s slathered with), and I’m hungry so let’s pile on some chicken breast, the skim milk of the protein world.

Pan Seared Beef Tenderloin and Fingerling Potatoes

So FineDiner Eric came over the other night and we butchered three Chickens and two whole Beef Tenderloins (which were on sale at Costco – instructional coming soon!).  As a reward for all our hard work, we fired up a chunk of the tenderloin and some fingerling potatoes and had ourselves an amazing late-night meal!

The Recipe Box feature on FineDiners.ca features recently found recipes that have caught our eye from around the web.  Some we’ve tried, some we hope to try soon.
