We’ve been away. No, not on vacation though it certainly was fun. We were in Kentucky throwing a Fiesta at Maker’s Mark Distillery for Rick Bayless. The Mariachi band played for four hours straight (with a little Bluegrass thrown in), hand cut Papel Picado (paper flags) strung between the trees fluttered, 650 guests drank Mark-aritas and ate tamales, tacos, grilled corn, ceviche, guacamole, and The Bent Spoon mango & tamarind paletas (that we drove down in car freezers!).
Back in the studio today and made a summer lunch of corn and zucchini with cumin spiced chèvre and lots of really good olive oil. We added a splash of good balsamic vinegar and some torn basil leaves, then tucked into it. It’s always good to be home.
