Eating Honestly

Last week, I ate well (When do I not? I live in New Orleans for Christ’s sake).

But, this was in Chicago (Yes, I get around).

It would be prepared by seven world famous chefs- just for me. Sweet.

They needed my o-p-i-n-i-o-n. (Of course they did). 

What did I think of a new palette of fresh/frozen ready-to-plate foods that will be (and are) available to the emerging American foodie vis-a-vis our already established American Super Markets? (Because really- we all still need the occasional quickie out of the frozen case at the grocer and if you’re one of those that say ‘I never buy for convenience‘, well then, you are just a liar). 

These new tastes would be grounded in a more international taste vocabulary- like cumin, and kale, and pomegranate.

They would be prepared using whole foods, leaner proteins, and less heat, for more color and greater nutrition.

They would recreate classic dishes using unlikely ingredients- like cake from beans. 

Okaaaaaay. 

Dazzle me. 

Take me on a culinary trip. Rock my world. Light my fire. Send me to the Moon!

And they did.

And I may never come back… 

because I’m in a tasty corner of Heaven- 
Honestly.
