Here is a second preview in our series of new thoughts and inspirations of the moment. Not necessarily in order, in preference, or even at the top of our list of great dishes, yet more so and importantly a progression and investment of time and thought in our forward movement of cooking. This is for us to simply document our steps and thoughts as we look at food in various ways, and it is that process that I hope to perhaps in some small way inspire others as they read this site.
