This house is now a home. Fredrik came back from Sweden with a few new recipes under his belt and he's not holding back. Lars is thrilled to still be here! The Chili Marinated Grilled Salmon was spectacular and the New Potatoes the perfect side. The Tomato, Caper, Red Onion Relish and the Wasabi Yogurt Sauce tied everything together. Gourmet all the way.


Fredrik is back for good! Summer is in full swing and home feels complete again. Our stove is temporarily out of commission, but it's too hot to cook inside, anyway. So, the grill is uncovered and we're going to put it to good use. A simple lunch on a beautiful afternoon. I'm very happy.

I've worked 7 days a week for the last 6 weeks. It's good to be busy. Despite, I've had lot's of fabulous food with lot's of fabulous people at lot's of fabulous places. I'll have to consider it scouting, but I'll certainly return to do it all again. Now that Fredrik is back for good and running the store I'll have the energy to resume documenting. Also, I've spent so much time with my friend and new colleague Jeffrey. I need to ease him into taking out my camera at every meal. We were in NYC at the Maritime Hotel this week. Next week is Akron, Ohio. Stay tuned.
