First of all...I did not progress in the Next Food Blog Star challenge but it sure was fun to participate!
Next...the kitchen is coming together in spite of all of the crazy things that have happened from the vent hood installers cannibalizing my hood fans to figuring out the new heat sensor requirements to...well, I'm sure there's something else but I can't think of what it is. Here is a picture of the kitchen...not the same one as on Facebook so a little variety coming atcha...
On the food front...I just read that legendary Chef Alain Ducasse has expressed himself on the subject of complicated food and he says...it's too damn complicated! YAY!! Thank you so much!! In fact, he is completely reworking his menu and is going so far as to limit all items to three ingredients. That just speaks to my heart after all this silly, self-absorbed, overly complex cooking that's going on out there! So...as I have always said, delicious, honest food, completely identifiable that you can be passionate about.
We will start being passionate about the food we cook very shortly at Urban Kitchen on Cherry Street...can't wait to share with everyone...I will be scheduling cooking classes in November!
