A French inspired Thanksgiving dish LOCAL!

Turkey  Chauteubriand,  Salad Nicoise, for a Thanksgiving feast!
Every ingredient used to prepare these dishes was purchased this week at my local farmers market from local farmers directly! I barley step foot in a big corporately own grocery store. Instead i enjoyed a beautiful morning meeting my own personal local agriculture team! The flavors, nutritional value and pure beauty of these products could not be beat! I have the deepest gratitude for all the endless back breaking work that my local farmers put in to provide my community with safe and super nutritious foods!

Grow your own micro greens!!

Growing your own micro greens is so easy and fun. All you need is the dirt and some seeds. experiment with different herbs and greens. Picture here are red beet micro greens ready to harvest with their first true set of leaves. They only need 10-14 days to harvest and they look beautiful in salad or as a garnish. Loaded with vitamins and mineral!! If you want to give them an add boost, fertilizer with an organic fish fertilizer you find right at your local home depot or garden shop.

Watermelon Radish

I picked up the watermelon radish at the West Palm Beach farmers market Saturday morning from Jodi at Swank Farms:)
Originally cultivated in China, large, colorful watermelon radishes are a nutritious root vegetable. The Chinese have long believed in the healing powers of this vegetable, thanks to its high photochemical profile including zeaxanthin, lutein and beta-carotene. Watermelon radishes are a rich source of antioxidants,vitamins and minerals.
I tried roasted it first with some EVOO and fresh rosemary. It lost it's brilliant color in the process so I put it to my mandolin raw and did a sweet Asian pickling with fresh ginger and sherry vinegar, it came out awesome and beautiful on the plate!!!

Fish Heads!

Making fish stock today in preparation for an amazing Thai coconut curry seafood stew for this weekend. I got this beautiful Grouper head and bone from my local fish monger. Just stop in and ask for their fresh fish heads and bones, most the time they will give them to you for free!

Fusion Food was Fabulous!!

 
Last night was AMAZING! The Chinese/Peruvian fusion meal was a huge hit!! Pictures and the menu will follow later on today :) As a private chef with 20+ years’ experience the techniques come as effortless as my next breath, leaving me free to loss myself in the depths of my creativity to produce the perfect dish :} My imagination does not end at food, I love art in all its forms and the child it wakens inside me!! Try and create something fresh in your kitchen today! Visit a local farm or green market, bring your smartphone and look up a local, seasonal ingredient to experiment with :} You will feel like a pro before you know it.

Up all night with visions of fusion foods!!

My creative wheels are turning keeping me up all last night fusing Japanese and Peruvian flavors!!! I'm planing a salmon with an Asian inspired glaze, fried wonton tostado toped with mandarin shrimp salad and a ginger pork stuffed and steamed wonton beggars purse drizzled with a balsamic Adobe sauce!!! Cant wait for the feed back after Saturday nights dinner party!!!
