Livin The Dream...

as I lay there, barely awake in the mid morning sun one recent morning, I thought about a few flavor profiles and dishes I would consider if I were in need of a wine paired and focused menu, or really truth be told, just a collaboration of fun flavors and ingredients for just about any cool menu needed. There was something elusive about it as I had been asked to create a menu earlier for a wine tasting, but I was not thinking about it all when I conjured this up. Funny how things can happen. Nothing as it seems...

Caught Up in the Moment...

Sometimes I really do not know where the time goes. It seems to just slip away right in front of me. That is the life of a chef for you. Always so many things to accomplish...one more thing to get done...one last idea to create...always busy doing that one last thing. Things certainly have been busy for me. New things at work. New things in my cooking. New things in my life. All good things. Although I have taken many, many shots over the last few months since our last encounter here, here are some that are a bit more recent from a very special dinner we did for some very special people for a very special birthday!

Nothing crazy, nothing overly complicated, nothing other than a few dishes inspired by the moment and some good times. But I can tell you it is tasty and flavorful and full of the elements of the season. It is amazing what a little positive rejuvenation can do for a soul, the craft and the passion. In every sense...
