An encounter with Wolfgang Puck and his recipe for Chinois Chicken Salad


       
      I was fortunate that, for most of my Advertising career, I traveled very frequently and almost inevitably, first class.  My clients generally hailed from places where great restaurants were few and far between.  Whenever they would get to world-class cities, they reveled in staying in the best hotels and eating at top-rated restaurants.  It was heaven on an expense account.

On the menu today: Chili Rubbed Flank Steaks, Duck Fat Hash Browns and Austrian White Asparagus



Lately, we’ve been loving flank steak.  What’s not to love about the supremely beefy flavor of this chewy cut of meat—especially when it’s one of the great bargains at the meat counter?  It’s currently less than half the price of a New York strip—but hurry, because it’s been my experience that supply and demand take over (witness the price of Osso Buco (link), it will shoot up as more people discover its versatility and flavor.  And then there’s the speed at which you can get it on the table.  It’s a perfect cut of beef for a weeknight.
