So I just got back from one of the most amazing meals of my entire life. Here’s a photo journey. A HUGE thank you to Kevin and Eli along with Hardy and all the folks at Murphy-Goode...what an amazing three days of culinary bliss!
So, when I arrived I was immediately handed a glass of Fume and mingled for a little bit while the rest of the guests arrived. There were 14 of us all together and I can’t even tell you how honored I felt to be a part of it.
The amuse was tomales bay oysters, beets, radishes and homemade butter:
Second course: citrus cured salmon with fennel, celeriac, micro celery and smoked salmon roe:
Octopus and watermelon with lemon vinegar:
Duck and foie gras with sunchokes and hibiscus:
wood oven roasted kurobuta pork with carrot puree and mustard green parcels:
cheese course!! Red hawk cheese with orange puree, herb salad and sesame crackers:
And finally……walnut panna cotta with butternut squash and bronzed fennel:
an extra bonus!
I don’t even know where to begin on what was my actual favorite…everything was so delicious!! I think overall, I liked the salmon and the foie gras the best though. Those two dishes were just absolutely perfect in my opinion. Beyond divine. The panna cotta wasn’t too shabby either
After dinner, we headed out for a cocktail a few blocks down. I had a blood orange margarita and it was lovely.
And then….I crashed. I was exhausted and was sooo ready for those elastic waist pants after some goooood eatin’. And you know what?! Kevin was such a gentleman and totally walked me to my car, a few blocks down. Seriously, these guys are so genuinely awesome. What an amazing experience!
