Good morning! Forgive me, you & anyone else reading this who might be feeling hungry. Not wanting to stir envy but just to celebrate art (esp.by people here), I have to tell you about some of the stars in Ray's kitchen firmament last night:
gloriously garlicky portobello mushrooms perched on thin-sliced comet tails of tomatoes & basil chiffonade, transported on perfect little olive-oil brushed toasts;
adjacent galaxy of fresh, just-in-season butternut squash risotto (golden-orange planets, surrounded by distinct stars of arborio rice "holding together" [as the song goes] gravity-like, in a primordial ambrosia of subtle wine, butter, & unspecified magic);
appearing as a winged bird
not another Dionysus thread!)
to be reborn again.
Blessings on that
for revealing itself to Ray
in the market
& riding home with him
"appointment with destiny."
Best Coq au Vin I've ever tasted!
Thank you, Ray, Eth, & winged gods...
p.s. So WHEN are you coming out here to visit, Liz?
