CARLSBAD – Having Nadia Petrova as a house guest bears a benefit aside from the Russian woman's presence. Petrova brings along her recipe for poached salmon.
For a second year during the Acura Classic, Petrova, an accomplished cook, is spending the week of the tournament with the Cima family of La Costa. Petrova has been cooking.
“A lot,” said Saundra Cima, who supervises the ballboys and ballgirls during the Acura.
According to Saundra, the Cimas have taken Petrova kayaking and swimming and on a trip on their boat. Petrova also visited with the Cimas after the Pacific Life Open at Indian Wells.
“She's fabulous,” Cima said.
Great recipe for poached salmon, too, which she cooks with vegetables.
