Fall To Pieces...

If I have said it once, I have said it hundreds...Fall is my favorite time to cook. The transition of summer to fall probably more specific as we are still in the thralls of the dwindling wonderful summer produce and entering into the venture of something more hearty and substantial...sublime and amazing!. The dishes of late have been all about this transition. There are many transitions throughout the year and in life. This time of year demands a change in focus, direction, perspective and thought as things get busier for the business. It is a change that we all mentally gear up for here in the kitchen. As I look forward, I cook from my heart and here is what is unraveling as I type. It will surely pave the way for the heartier fare that follows...
pacific shigoku oyster, peaches, radishes, tomato gelee, micro mustard mix
sriracha, lemon pearls
