It was a wild and stormy night, well, OK it was a wild and stormy day yesterday, and I think people just wanted to stay home so we didn’t have as large a turnout as usual, but we were still able to have a few people in and visit with. And sometimes it’s just nice to have just a few people you can have a lovely conversation with. I got to visit a little more last night and it was wonderful. The food wasn’t bad either.
I made some Taquito’s and Wontons,
And then there was some wonderful Smoked Salmon, some of the best I’ve had in years. It reminded me of Gravlax, the Scandinavian style of smoked salmon.

A relish tray with krab and olives
And some fantastic Tuna
|Tuna with seaweed salad and wasabi, wonderful (pardon the blurry picture)|
All in all, a nice gathering with great conversation and lovely people.
And by the way, I’m scheduled as the guest chef next month at the Crooked River Grill. Here’s a sneak peak at the projected Menu;
Chips and Salsa on the tables along with Escabeche of Jalapeno’s and Carrots
Albondigas Soup for a starter
Carnita’s with Refried Bean and Lime Cilantro Rice and flour tortillas
and Pico de Gallo
I’ll be demonstrating how to make your own Refried Beans, as well as making Pico de Gallo and Carnita’s. So stay tuned and I’ll keep you updated.
