Report From PIA – December 18
After traveling all day to get home from San Francisco, with, can you believe it, catching another head cold, I am not in the best of shape for posting something thoughtful. I do want to say, however, that one of the great things about travel is being exposed to new dishes and ingredients.
Being in Northern California is always stimulating food-wise because of the cross cultural, emphasis-on-fresh-ingredients restaurants. As I ate a lovely jicama, red cabbage, grapefruit and pecan salad the other night, I realized that as someone who loves good food, and enjoys cooking, I am in a rut. I tend to cook the same things using the same ingredients again and again.
So I am resolved to expand my repertoire in the kitchen. Details to follow, and it’s great to be home.
