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!
