Whirlwind weekend!

You know those weekends that are so fun and you play so hard that you could use a weekend to recover from it? Yeah, that was this weekend for this soup lady. We had an amazing time serving soup at Twilight on the Terrace at Hearst castle with Kirsten of Little Red Hen Bread. If you haven’t been to this fantastic event, I recommend it so highly. It’s such an amazing opportunity to chat and dine with  central coast genius food and wine producers in a beautiful location. One of my favorite new companies at the event is a cider company called Reef Points. It’s run by 2 fantastic couples who are on the cutting edge of something big! I tried their Ollieberry cider and it was outstanding and so beautifully designed! 

Here’s what you will find at the soup booth this week : Monday in Baywood, Thursday in Morro Bay, and Friday in Cambria : artichoke white bean and golden beet with heirloom carrot and Quinoa

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

June gloom

image

When there used to be water in the Neptune pool. Twilight on the terrace is this saturday!

I absolutely love our “June gloom” weather.  Maybe it’s because I grew up up in Los osos, the valley of fog but a “nice” day for me has always been wet and foggy. Another fantastic thing about June gloom?  It means it’s warming up to the east and that means: TOMATOES! Oh, how I’ve missed them! They make my job so very easy because they are, in themselves, the perfect flavor profile.  There’s not quite enough to do a tomato bisque yet…but soon…very soon.

Here’s what you will find at the soup booth this week : Monday in Baywood, Thursday in Morro Bay, and Friday in Cambria : Minestrone gnocchi (the red kind with amazing peacock farms tomatoes) and Split Pea (the green kind).

I look forward to seeing you guys and don’t forget your jars!  Also, Kirsten, of Little Red Hen bread and I will be serving up soup at Hearst Castle this weekend for the “twilight on the terace” event…I think there are still tickets available.  It’s super fun. Contact friends of hearst castle for more info!

Humpbacks!

So, the other day, I was long boarding in San Simeon and..
No joke…a humpback whale poked her GIGANTIC head out of the water right in front of me. It was awesome.  She had two babies with her who turned on their sides, flukes up, to check me out too. What an absolute treat! I hope you all have an opportunity to get to the beach and check them out! The water is deepest close to shore at Montana de oro ( Bushon trail) and in the northern part of cambria ( moonstone beach) and pretty much north of cambria (the lighthouse is a good spot too). This deep water allows the whales to swim in super close to shore so you can get a good look at them from the comfort of the beach.

Onto soup!

Here’s what you will find at the soup booth this week:
Monday in Baywood, Thursday in Morro Bay, and Friday in Cambria : Roasted Red Chili with hominy and Tempeh ( formerly known as tempeh menudo) and moong Dal (curried split mung beans with tumeric and potatoes).

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