Fortune Cookie

We went to Pei Wei to grab a bite on Sunday evening. Here is the fortune I received:

"Look forward to great fortune and a new lease on life!"

Then on the back, the word translation was "Cook".

I hope the two are related!

February Book Club

I started reading the Ruth Reichl book "Garlic and Sapphires" for the February "Eat this Book" Book club meeting at Central Market. I am barely into it, but so far so good.

I think I may become a Ruth Reichl fan after this one. I'll write a review when I'm finished!

Busy New Year

Things have been pretty busy lately, and I haven't been updating my blog as much as I would like. I did work at Central Market last Thursday and the food was delicious! I didn't go too crazy (if you are following my other blog, W.B.S.G). Of course, one would expect no less from Chef David Bull!

Here's what we served: White Asparagus and Arugula Salad; Pistachio-Crusted Sea Scallops with Chanterelle Mushrooms and Truffled Herb Salad; Garlic-Crusted Rack of Lamb with Camembert Risotto, Oregano Herb Broth & Garlic Chips (divine); and Assorted Chocolate Truffles (from the Bakery).

The food was amazing and David was great as always. Also, his Bakery Sous-Chef Monica was there again and she is a delight!

I work with them again in February. Hopefully, I'll get to sneak in a few more classes too.
