just another of course! A matter of taste. A matter of personal vision. A look into the thoughts as they unfold for some very special folks. They are foodies, supporters, friends, guests, and honorable peeps. They are a couple who frequent the chefs table many times and always seem to come with excitement in mind and grins on their faces. Here is a line up of what was served to these special guests. It is always a great pleasure to cook for them as they always are so eager to try new things, explore new tastes and flavors and I always get the vibe that they generally just enjoying supporting us and seeing us as we do them. A mutual admiration of the people them self, if for no other reason but to converse and share stories, laugh and enjoy the company and camaraderie of the other...and all the while being based and centered around food and cooking! What a great thing. I hope you enjoy the degustation as much as we did preparing it for them.
