Saute´Pan, Skillet, or Rondeau?

Wow! Terrific comments. I will (re)read and absorb. The Windsor pan seems to be a variant. Is it supposed to evaporate more liquid in the oven than a casserole does? Thanks for your help.

Saute´Pan, Skillet, or Rondeau?

Hi:

Just recently acquired a very good skillet(Falk) for wife's anniversary. My ignorance will show, but I need some help, please. What is the ideal way to use these three different pans? I suspect that a skillet allows more heat to escape than a saute´ pan, but why? When do you want to retain more heat? How about a Rondeau? More for oven cooking? Spill more heat than saute´pan? Why? Thanks for the primer ;).

Palm Beach Occasion

Hi:

Done some research: looking at Okeechobee Steakhouse, PB Catch, then Breakers brunch for a weekend at the Chesterfield. (we're seniors.). Thoughts?

Palm Beach Occasion

Mid-September is my target. Is late August a good time to try? I know about the Florida program; is there a better deal?

Palm Beach Occasion

That's a great idea! I'm a couple of months out. Assume reservations are possible?

Palm Beach Occasion

Looking for high quality special occasion(Honey's birthday). We're foodies, quality helps, $$$ is fine. No Italian. Dress-up works. Thoughts? Overnight is fine. Palm Beach and north to Stuart will help. Thanks!

Portuguese Fish Chowder

So far, we've got Skate, calamari, dogfish, scallops, garlic, evoo, tomato, potato, onion, pinch of saffron, milk, pepper, salt. There's a buttery taste(evoo?), and it's fairly thick. No Linguica that I can discern. The restaurant was a small, friendly place right on the ocean, named: "Ti Matilde's".

Portuguese Fish Chowder

We returned from a trip to Portugal(Ericeira), where we had a marvelous fish chowder. Very fresh, filled with good tastes. What are the secrets?

That sounds very interesting. How does one find out about sale prices for items like Falk?

Thanks for your help. These look heavy. What are the alternatives for maintenance/cleaning? Falk? Bourgeat? Mauviel? Hand wash, or dishwasher? Availability? Sales?

Restaurant help

Thanks. That's a start. Anything for a casual evening meal? Big lunches mean we have to be more careful in the evening :)

Cheese Treasure Coast

Hi:
Looking for an excellent cheese to go with a thirty year old vintage Port, for NYE. Suggestions? Where to acquire? So far, Hunter's cheese(stilton & cheddar) is as close as we know of in Stuart. Anything else in the area, to include WPB?

Miami Spice

And what would you recommend: $$$, quiet, worth an occasion, not touristy, not quintessential Florida(we live here)?

Miami Spice

thanks for your help. Opinions on my selections so far? Jim

Miami Spice

Looking at double celebration(4 days) in September @ SoBe. I understand that is time of Miami Spice. Is that good or bad, re: hotels, decent restaurants? We're senior foodies. Looking at: Fogo de Chao; Sardinia; Indomania; Baires. Also, hotels: Mondrian; Essex House; Metropolitan; Redbury. Opinions, advice please. We reside in Florida(Martin County), so we're flexible. Thanks!

Is there a local non chain casual seafood restaurant in the clearwater area. Prefer picnic table on the beach kind of place.

Bait House. Very casual. Clearwater beach. Parking lot for cruise ships. No fryolator! Beer & wine. Fresh!
