Lack of writing

Dear faithful reader,

Apologies that the meat and potatoes of the blog (writing + food being killed, cooked, and/or eaten) has been drenched by periods of absence – but there is good reason for it, and it will be uncovered shortly.  For now, two of the better menus of this week…

sauvignon blanc
yellowtail sashimi
homemade beer – stout
homemade beer – belgian ale
tiger shrimp
duck confit w/ crispy homemade potato gnocchi, crispy duck skin & port reduction

homemade wine – 2009 syrah & vino robles cabernet sauvignon blend
blackberry & raspberry fruit tart & vanilla whipped cream

Lamb tartare w/ za’tar
Iberico ham croquette
Lots of beer
Yellowtail sashimi
Yellowtail belly
Sake and more sake
tuna, mackerel
Fried sweet shrimp
and now completing duck prosciutto

& a photo in nature to whet your imagination…

 

write soon,

E
