Question re: Fresh Pasta

Ha ha, no, I would never do that.
I stopped by the farmer's market on my way to work and since I was running late and moving too quickly, I missed getting the fresh pasta I bought into the fridge before I walked out the door. Too much multi-tasking.
By the way, the crawfish fettuccine with lemon cream sauce was delicious!

Question re: Fresh Pasta

When I didn't get responses within an hour or so of originally posting and needed to get dinner started, I did research on food safety websites. That's why. :-)
Really, the question originated because I've made fresh pasta and dried it at room temperature, but it wasn't "wet" for long and this was in a plastic bag...so no air circulation, very hot day, just seemed different. If it had sat out drying, it probably would have dried in about an hour today.

Question re: Fresh Pasta

You kidding? Love it! NO problem with raw eggs, either...in steak tartare, eggnogs, etc. But the equivalent question would be if I made steak tartare, should I eat it after sitting on the counter 6 hours later? Nah.

Question re: Fresh Pasta

Yes, but concerned that it was in the "danger zone" temperature-wise for 6 hours. Probably better to be safe, than sorry now that I've searched around on the web. *sigh*
We have dried in the house, but I just paid for this!

P.S. It's been in the 80s here in Marin County all day.

Question re: Fresh Pasta

We left our fresh pasta out on the counter all day. Is it okay to cook and eat? Worried about the raw egg. Any professional chefs out there or experts in food safety?

asian fusion, thai?

What are your top recomendations for a great dinner or Happy Hour, somewhat close to the downtown area?

I've heard of Saucebox, Pok Pok. Any comments on those? We are visiting from San Francsico and have already enjoyed lots of wonderful food here, but are ready to try someting new.

Thanks everyone!
