Just a fun collection of shots, dishes, juxtaposition of ingredients and passionate thoughts laid out before you on white china as it unfolded for some of the last guests in 2012. This puts closure for me on cooking professionally for 2012 as I will not most likely be doing any more real cooking until the new year as we are closed for business and i foresee myself out and about with friends and family. It has been a good year with many new ideas, emotions, visions, contemplations and frustrations alike. I can see 2013 as a positive, successful breeding ground for the new and all that remains. Cheers to all and Happy New Year!
