What’s a little healthy summer competition between colleagues, especially two newcomers to Northern California, the artisan cheese, sustainable farming, and organic produce Mecca?
Now, I don’t want to mention any names, but a certain someone is getting a little fruity in the kitchen lately, and his initials are Will Fertman. That’s right, Will. I’ve seen your posts with your peaches on your pizza and other such Cali-Foodie adventurous combinations, and I must say: I like it. It jump-starts my competitive nature, but I do like it. I’m just wondering what the folks back home on the East Coast might have to say about peaches on a pizza...
So here’s some food for thought. Tonight’s entrée-sized salad at Lauren Berley’s Sonoma home:
Fresh quatre saisons lettuce from my garden Fresh snappy California green grapes, halved ½ cucumber, chopped into bite-size pieces ¾ granny smith apple, chopped Fresh spearmint leaves from my garden Grated dill havarti
Home made dressing: lemon, ginger, garlic, distilled white vinegar, olive oil, Dijon mustard, DOP chestnut honey from Italy, and cracked black pepper.
A splendid combination of flavors, on every front, I must say.
Will, what have you got for me next? And better yet, when can I come over for dinner? Anyone else want a piece of me?
