When I lived in Connecticut, I used to dream of sitting in European cafés. Now, I’ve done that in spades… Copenhagen, Berlin, Rome, Venice, Siena, Amsterdam, London, Krakow, and all I want is a proper diner breakfast!
What I wouldn’t do for short stack of buttermilk pancakes, a veggie omelet, toast with jam, and the pièce de résistance… homefries!
I can get something similar here, but the closest thing to a proper diner breakfast comes from my own kitchen, and weakest link has always been my homefries… too starchy, too hard, too mushy, too oily, too bland, etc. etc.
So I did what I did with falafel, I tried, I adjusted, I tried, I adjusted, I tried, I adjusted… and then I nailed it!
