Beautiful Food

Oven Roasted Lamb and Polenta
My posts usually feature brick oven info or lore and also brick oven restaurants or events.  I have claimed that one avenue to beautiful food is the brick oven. However, any foodie knows that there are many avenues and sometimes taking a side street results in unexpected treasures.

On rare occasions, I have been treated to beautiful food.  Where most restaurants (and home kitchen chefs) pay attention to quantity and expectations of flavor, beautiful food is both artfully presented and extraordinary in flavor.  These are the times when surprise bursts on your palate.

Two such moments in the past six months are:
Portland, Maine's Cinque Terre/Vignola Restaurant's Harvest Dinner at Grandview Farm www.cinqueterremaine.com/ and Pacific Catch pacificcatch.com on Chestnut Street in San Francisco.
