A bit on the late side I know since it was a week ago. I get it, I don't post often enough. Hell...I work. This post is all about and the tribute to the lover's package that was served up for Valentines Day Dinner on the 14th. Cupid had it goin on as the food took on a very sexy nuance to it. The bites tasty, the flavors sensual, the plates voluptuous and the vibe was cool. This day is probably the most favorite for me to cook. Other than chefs tables, wine dinners, guest chef events and the like, this seems to be a might where food is so much the main focus and the unexpected is expected! We play and have fun with the dishes and look to craft them with love, soul, whimsy and sensory excitement.
