Kitchen Confidential

Yesterday’s prep work went very well. Sean, Kerri, Robert, and I beavered away, finishing the peppers, biscotti, flatbread, stock and beans. Amie brought by an enormous harvest from the farm, leading me to consider adding a bonus menu item. Here’s Sean, chopping very spicy chilis.

We got to wear jackets and look very professional.

This morning, I went up to Palo Alto (where I was very impressed by the vendors at the market, but then, it is Palo Alto, after all) and picked up 10 pounds of shiitake mushrooms from Far West Fungi, our last donation.

I’m waiting for the menus to print, as I type this, then it’s back to the restaurant. See you there!
