Round 2: Crispy brussel sprout leaves, crimini and oyster mushroom, persimmon, pomegranate seeds, walnut vinaigrette.

(This was my favorite dish. Who would’ve thought persimmon and mushrooms would pair together so well?)

P.S. Have a safe and happy new year everyone!

xmas (eve) dinner!

This will be an ongoing series as I  will be away for 2 weeks and I can set these up to publish slowly while I’m gone…

Christmas Eve dinner was beautiful and I was happy to be a part of this special little dinner party at a friend’s place. It was a wonderful meal and I couldn’t think of a nicer way to spend the holiday.

Round one: Cauliflower soup with caramelized onion, cauliflower florets, and sliced apple. (this is before the flood of soup was poured over)
