Heirloom carrots!

Well guys,  hope you are all gearing up for the big fourth of July celebration this week! It should be an eventful one as it lands on a Friday this year, I hope I get to see you all in Cayucos!

Just a heads up, I am a Cayucan and as such,  I love the 4th so I’ll be skipping the market in Cambria to play with everyone! 

Here is the soups for the week.

Everybody’s Favorite!

Hey guys, it’s been a month since I made everybody’s favorite soup, Ayurvedic dhal, so I have big plans to make it all this week and nurture your bodies with balancing spices.  Also, I have found a new source for oak grown Shiitakes (loosing my original source is why you haven’t been seeing a lot of mushrooms in the soups). These mushrooms come from a small family farm and we have been in communication about how they are grown and Im very impressed with their standards. Yay!
Here we go:

Monday in Baywood, Thursday in Morro Bay and Friday in Cambria, ayurvedic dhal and Mushroom Barley

I look forward to seeing you guys and don’t forget your jars!

Hey guys! It was so nice seeing some of you at the Hearst Castle “twilight on the terrace” event! It was a lovely and fun evening and awesome to be amongst my foodie peers in a beautiful place! Im trying a new soup this week, I hope you guys like it!

Monday in Baywood, Thursday in Morro Bay and Friday in Cambria: roasted cauliflower leek (sorry, my coconut milk didn’t come in so I had to make a switch) and Chipotle Black Bean

I look forward to seeing you guys and don’t forget your jars!

New tools!

There is nothing a cook likes better than a new kitchen tool! It was time for a knife upgrade to increase productivity (and also I saw the movie “chef” over the weekend and it got me all pumped up) so after some research, I finally settled on the global 7″ santuku knife based on a recommendation from Kirsten, the bread girl (who’s opinion I cherish for all things quality).  Anyway,  thought I should share my excitement with you all, I’ll let you know if its a hit!

Here’s the soups for the week: Monday in Baywood, Thursday in Morro Bay and Friday in Cambria, Roasted tomato carrot bisque (break out those grilled cheese sandwiches) and blackeye pea with barley
**both soups contain tomatoes this week, sorry, tomato haters.

Also I look forward to seeing those of you who are attending “twilight on the terrace” at Hearst Castle on Saturday evening. Should be a fun time!

I look forward to seeing you guys and don’t forget your
