Last week was a serious week for us. My Heirloom Tomato Salad has gone, but my new Pear Salad came on even stronger. We converted the old concept upside down. Our new Pear Salad looks so cool, it tastes so good and its well worth the price.
We also launched our new Shrimp Ravioli dish on our lunch menu. I owe the execution of this dish to Chef Sri. She has a very strong basic Thai background and she made one quick fix to my ravioli and it came out flawless with great timing and it tastes darn good.
Ali and the rest of my front staff have been complaining about my "Lack of Greens" syndrome. There is some really great fall produce on the market right now. So I decided on two dishes:
This week I have been working on a new fall Sweet & Sour. We have added some fall vegetables to give it a little attitude!
I am also hoping to finish up a fall Apple Salad. I have been working on it a lot lately but they have all ended up in the garbage. Hopefully I can find my direction by the end of the week.
Your Busy Chef,
