I love cooking for other people. I'm currently staying with my sister and her husband in New York and sometimes she's lazy and asks me to cook for them, and I happily oblige.
Maybe I should just be a house cook. A private cook for some rich family. I don't like cooking for myself, it's lonely. And I'm too much of a health freak to cook for myself and other people all the time. I want to make cracking pork belly and desserts with a ridiculous amount of butter and sugar, but I'm happy with just a bite, I want other people to enjoy the entire dish.
Job offers anyone?
I'm currently in university with a lot of very capable people. They're going places. I'm feeding them now for free, so maybe in a few years time they'll be able to afford me as a private cook.
Also, I know this looks like a lot of pasta, it probably was. Just do 80g for one person, I think that was like 140g.
1 shallot, finely chopped
1/2 garlic clove, finely chopped
1/2 medium zucchini, diced to 5mm cubes
1 tbsp pine nuts
about 1/2 cup parmesan
about 2 tbsp goats cheese
Bring a big pot of water with about 1tbsp of salt to the boil. Add the pasta and cook until very very al dente - you need to still cook it afterwards. So drain and reserve about 1 cup of the pasta water.
fry the shallot until translucent, then add the garlic and zucchini. Fry with a little bit of the pasta water until softened, about 3-4 minutes
Add the pine nuts and fry for another 2 minutes.
Add the pasta, toss and add a bit of the pasta water. Add the cheeses and fry, adding more pasta water if needed. Season and serve.
