What a crazy summer it has been! I recently took point on our catering program at Whole Foods Market in Frisco, CO. It has been steadily growing and I am so excited for what is in store. Next week, we are going to be providing food for the Pro Challenge bike race when it is in Summit County. After that, I am going to start seasonal tasting events and cooking classes!
Wow, am I happy to have my blog back! As some of you may have noticed, Savour the Senses went MIA for about a week. 🙁 I was going to switch web hosts, but realized how difficult it is to transfer my database and files without a web genius’ help! Luckily I was able to go back on my decision and didn’t lose anything. On another note, summer has arrived in Summit County and it is fantastic. My garden is planted outside and my greens just sprouted today!
I was watching a Next Food Network Star rerun the other day and got a good laugh out of Wolfgang Puck bringing one of the contestants back inside the house to show her how to make risotto. I am sure many of you saw this episode too. I was amazed that a person would make it that far on a show like that without knowing how to make risotto! I guess that shows that TV is not always as realistic as we may think. Come to think of it, I also watched a 24 Hour Restaurant Battle where the girl who was going to be the head chef had never even worked in a restaurant before!
Now that the new year has started, I’m sure many of you are trying to eat healthier. I have personally been trying to eat more vegetables in my meals. I recently came across this recipe on the Gourmet Traveler blog. It uses a huge amount of spinach, which was great for me since I have a giant Costco bag of spinach at the moment. On a less healthy note, the Parmesan crisps are to die for, but beware they are super addicting! I ate this with my Broiled Lemon and Garlic Shrimp.
