BasqueStage Candidate Post: The Story of this Dish is the Story of Me

Crispy-Skin Salmon atop Creamy Forbidden Rice

Napa Fruits and Vegetables, Garden Greens and Blooms, Crispy Serrano Twist, and Spicy Cider Gastrique

The story of this dish, is the story of me. The flavors and ingredients have been adopted along my many journeys and the foraged and grown elements exhibit my deep love and connection to the soil. From Belgian cider, to Pacific Northwest Salmon; from Guadeloupean ginger and chilie, to wild mountain mushrooms and blooms; to right here with foraged Napa Pineapple Guava and home-grown carrots- I draw strength from the many soils I have known and, like this dish, have found balance within the different ingredients.  Thank you for this opportunity- I hope that you enjoy the views of what catches as beauty to my eyes and delight to my nose and tongue.
