Sungold Tomato Jam

right now my kitchen is redolent with the most amazing smells. I am making this tomato jam from my sungolds and it will take an hour or so to simmer before I can process it. The ingredients are a yellow onion, a table spoon of finely minced garlic,two pasilla chilis,a generous pinch of spanish saffron, a huge chunk of finely chopped fresh ginger, a tablespoon of toasted cumin seed, a generous bit of aleppo pepper, red chili flake, thyme, lemon zest and the juice of two lemons, a shot of rice vinegar, sea salt and cracked peppercorns. About 1 cup of organic cane sugar. I sauteed the onions,ginger, chilis and garlic in about a quarter cup of extra virgin olive oil, and then added the saffron and dry ingredients. I let these simmer a bit to infuse the elements then added the tomatoes, and the rest of the ingredients. After the jam has formed, i'll process for about 20 minutes. One can also skip the processing and refrigerate and they should keep well a couple of weeks. a perfect condiment for grilled meats, or even a fine cheese on artisan bread!

 Best Beloveds,  Esteemed Friends and Fans of HERE @ The Whale Bar

Life once again presents an alternate path for me and so now HERE will no longer be there, and the road ahead is uncertain. I want to thank all of you who came and supported my quirky venture, with special heartfelt thanks to Mary Alinder without whom I never would have been able to fill the room with out. John and Paula are moving in and this is going to be wonderful for them, our community and Steven to have an ongoing restaurant there. I wish them great success. My undying love and devotion to  Amanda, Aimee, Heather , Ren & Hoolis. To Mike, Kelle and James, Jen and George for their amazing food they raised and harvested with incredible care and love.

But especially I honor and tip my hat to
 Steven Suddith, n'er a man more graceful and generous
You are a jewel.

 With deep appreciation and gratitude I will move forward.

When Summer becomes Winter

We coast dwellers are having our winter now.
This is my favorite soup of the summer season but today, as I write this
I may want to serve this Roasted Heirloom Tomato Gazpacho
hot , instead of cold.... I filled my clay pot with a variety of heirloom tomatoes, red jalepeno
yellow onion and garlic, slathered in olive oil, sea salt and black pepper and roasted
until the tomatoes have carmelized.
I then blend it in the blender until smooth, chill, season to taste and garnish
with a fine mince of english cucumber, chive and red onion.

Sunday, July 15, 2012

I took a few months off from writing and HERE  to go inward, plant my garden
re-evaluate what I needed, what I value and how do I share my work and this devotion with my community.
It is now mid summer and we coastal natives are blessed with temperate weather, the summer fog cooling the ridge tops and river valleys, feeding the redwoods their beloved mist.
I wake each morning to the sea scattered with the salmon boats
the newly born ravens screaming for breakfast
that softness and reassurance that the morning fog brings to my mountain.
The honey bees have arrived en mass, perhaps changing my ideas of hive collapse.
The garden is now beginning to offer her harvest, the orchard abundant with fruit, the bees wrecklessly in love with my poppies and lavender, the nopales flower, the Burmese honeysuckle blossom.
When I am quiet I can hear buzzing and feeding, the pollination is audible.

These are my first harvest of leeks
and in the spirit of offering, abundance and deliciosity
I give you my

 Leek Fontina Tart

First you'll prepare a 12" tart shell, lining it with pastry dough and chilling well.

Clean and cut , ah, about three or four leeks (if they are smallish)
and saute' in extra virgin olive oil, a dash of red chili flake, sea salt and cracked black pepper
until very tender. I like to get the pan hot first and give them a bit of a sear first, a wee
bit if crisp, then slowly braise.

Take this leek yumminess and fill the tart pan and generously grate fontina cheese
on top. 
Bake at 375 degrees until the cheese has fallen in love with and married the leeks
the crust is nicely cooked.

Never to be the person to jump ship, I intend to spend a good deal of my retreat working on a new formula.
I welcome all suggestions!

Obsession: Vintage aprons

I have always had a problem with chef wear. Those starchy, hot, white jackets, ill fitting and constrictive. An air of military and confinement. The starchy tall white hats, totally impractical and ridiculous. This uniform, set standard by men chefs, likely in some cold European country, for me is an act of garment terror.
I did not learn to cook from men, nor in the confinement of a culinary school. I wore a uniform for 12 years attending private Parochial schools in my youth, and had enough of uniforms when I began to cook. Thankfully, none of the kitchens I worked in demanded that I wear a uniform and only for the so called ‘chef events’ was I asked to wear one. I did, reluctantly.
Over the years I have cultivated my own personal cook wear, consisting of a pretty eccentric collection of vintage kitchen aprons and matching Chuck Taylor’s.  For years I wore overalls and bandanas. Kitchens are hot, and the work is demanding and rigorous, and although one has to protect oneself against the elements, it’s crucial to be comfortable and need I say, stylish!
When I wear these aprons, it evokes for me all the amazing talented women who allowed me into their kitchens. Beginning with my maternal Lebanese Grandmother Alexandria,, who is my base note, my Welch father’s sisters who lived in Rodeo, California who taught me how to bake and preserve. The elaborate, embroidered aprons worn by the women I came to love and admire during my sojourn in southern Portugal, these women living on farms and in small villages, running tiny cafes and mastering the cuisine of the Levant.  The women at the farmer’s markets up in the hills, selling kale or chickens, or tomatoes, wearing checkered or floral or Mickey Mouse aprons over their black widows garb. All of these women wore these kinds of aprons, that they wiped their hands on, soothed the tears of a child with, wiped up a spill of olive oil on the counter, dusting off the nose of a messy dog, blowing their noses.
The marketplace in Oaxaca, a symphony of color and delight as every woman there , adorned by a beautiful handmade apron, the eye feasts and is transported by the dizzy combinations of pattern and color.
These aprons are made by hand; you can see the stitching, and the care that went into their design. The lively and curious fabrics, carefully chosen, whimsical, ironic, often sexy and provocative, a wee bit of metallic somewhere to insinuate a festive night.  A ruffle here, an applique there. Each carry within them a story, every one of them, with stubborn stains that will not come out, the cross stitch of someone's name on the hem.  A red wine stain, a spot of gravy, a hint of charcoal.
This legacy carries generations of cooking and nurturing and kitchen fashion and for me this is where my heart lies, in the holding of our style statement, as a woman, a chef, and obsessive collector of a beautiful, historical tradition.

Finally! the Crab!

The past few mornings, I wake to the sea illuminated by the lights of the crab boats finally able to go out and harvest their cages. The sky still dark, the sea punctuated by circles of light evoke a dreamy anticipation in me.I have been waiting for the Dungeness crab for weeks . Last night Eric came into HERE and brought me 12 beautiful sea spiders. They are exceptionally large this year (hoping not a nuclear mutation right?). My kitchen is redolent with the boiling crab, the bay leaf, chili flake and lemon.  I will flash freeze the meat to hold it til later. Crab cakes they'll become for Monday's dinner.

I left the hill this afternoon to pick up my food for the dinners this week.
I had played phone tag with Mike all week about the bunnies, but we managed to finally connect and were to meet at the farm at 4.

I met Geo in town earlier and picked up the lamb for the Birria, and had a late afternoon time set to pick up the squashes from Kelle and James.

When I called them, I knew that they had to finally put down their beloved dog Betsy
yesterday and it felt awkward and trivial to ask them about squash but when I called James was gracious and welcoming and having been there myself, in fact Kelle and I shared siblings of two different litters over this past 20 something years, which I suppose binds us as even more than family. Her beautiful Betsy is the same age as my Rosie, and this hits close to home on many levels. I arrive there, and they are hanging with family and friends and the grief is palpable, but they are so loving and warm and James brings me these crazy beautiful squashes, again to say that these folks create beauty and love and music within all the rich bounty and challenge that life is.

I leave there to meet Mike to pick up the bunnies that his son Kyle introduced me to last week. When we met, the sky was beginning to shift, wind picking up and the creek was much cooler and shrouded in shade by the bare alders and willows along Shit creek and Mill Street was alive with guys hanging out by their trucks as the swoosh on chill of a winter squall formed.

Mike’s partner Karen Ann had just left this morning for Hawaii to sit at her mother’s bedside, where she was finally letting go after a long bout with cancer. Mike pulls out two large bags of perfectly dressed bunnies for me and we weigh them out in his office as the stories of Karen Ann’s mother, Betsy’s passing, the very present and stark awareness, was perhaps compelled by winter, the green pasture with the Muscovy ducks eating bugs, the goats silent in their pen, the trickle and swoosh of the creek nearby, the crick crack of Alders in a symphonic collision with the wind and the distant sea swell.

Today, my church, my Sunday, before my Monday, the constant beauty and tenderness of life, of sustenance, how fragile it all is, how precious we all are.

This life.

The opening of HERE

The few days leading up to our opening of HERE were some of the most remarkable days in recent memory. We were in this long stretch of mild weather, the temps low, with that hard frost in the morning  but then later on the sky clear and crisp, the sea calm.
Sunday morning I went to visit Mike at Windfall Farm, his young son Kyle greets me at the gate with a wild flurry of ducks flying about his head and scattering at the arrival of my car . Kyle laughs amid the flapping of wings and squacking of duck and geese and exclaims that he just let them all out at the very moment I drove up! His eyes bright  with delight and humor. I am there picking up the beets and the onions, and Mike invites me to help pick the red brussel sprouts . I am deeply moved as he patiently and tenderly shows Kyle, who is 6, (with small hands and agile fingers), how to reach into the plant and snap off the sprouts. Mike is kind and Kyle is eager and we walk down the rows of plants talking about the coming menus and what I can make with what he is growing this winter and do we think it will ever rain again.

Kyle takes me over to the Rabbit House and introduces me to the breeding rabbits by name, and explains why some of them remain and some of them don’t and he shows this impressive confidence about his knowledge of them and their attributes.
He even shares with me his favorite way to to prepare them.

This last September I inaugurated my wood oven and celebrated my birthday with a huge pizza and dance party at my home, and we set up our friend Justin in the doorway, where she nearly killed us all, DJ’ing unstoppable dance tunes, all the while Kyle, danced with every one of us and also mostly did his tremendous moves in front of Justin’s set up.

Kyle, master farmer, rabbit breeding expert and break out dancer.

The next day I went to Kelle and James’ farm and picked up the most beautiful greens, They where honestly poetic, as Kelle and James are in all that they do, breathe and their farm on the ridge, just a few miles from me, is a work of great love, devotion and a deep and true understanding of gardening on every level. I was overwhelmed by the aesthetic of it , every inch a visual feast.
The bags of purple mizuna, baby arugula, romanesco broccoli florets, rainbow chard, dino kale and baby collard greens, vibrant with life and love, beautifully bagged and boxed, waiting for me.
Kelle and James’ old dog Betsy, who is the same age as my Rosie, is very ill and their
grieving and worry was palpable that morning, and we all stood around in their parking area-loving Betsy up, talking about why she can no longer eat, chard, and wondering about the rain, that promised to come but has not.

Opening day, I cooked…and tried to anticipate what was ahead, we were not full which was actually a relief and as I left home to go to the bar, I got in my car and it
was dead… I had to run over to Mark’s house,(thank god he was home), with my swanky coat on, clean Chuck Taylors, and red lipstick… me, now ,running behind. Classic.

We prevailed.

Heather’s childcare fell through and so her beautiful daughter Estelle
Joined us, she tucked away in the wait station with her ipad and her Rubik’s cube, but she mostly spent the evening with Ren and I in the kitchen. She was lovely and mindful and when I would forget something she noticed.
Ren is the son of my dear friend Aimee, who is also serving there, and I was at Ren's birth…His Blessing Way was here at my home, and his mother and I have been friends and co-workers for 25 years.
Ren was instantly perfect in the kitchen and he made my experience more beautiful than I could have ever hoped for. I am as mad for him now as I was the day he was born, when Aimee fed on  the wild blackberry crisp, I brought to her right after birthing him.
The women serving for me have been with me since 1994, Amanda, Aimee and Heather, and we are more than family. We are old friends, confidants, we know nearly everything about one another,we have been through thick and thin together, their children grew up in my restaurants, they and their mothers are part of me and I am part of them. Here we all are again, 18 years later, back at it.

Tonight as I write this it is raining.

Obsession: Duck Fat

All of you that know me and my cooking well, know one of my secret ingredients is duck fat.
I will most often use it as my source of fat to cook with, unless of course it is a vegetarian dish i am making. I render my own duck fat, as I prepare confit of duck regularly and it's very easy to do. The flash point is pretty high and it won't combust or smoke as readily as olive oil, it's twin, will do. I prefer to mix fats, as they do in Moroccan cooking, to build a baseline of flavor for the searing of meats or vegetables. If one were making perfume, you would consider it the base note, to which all other ingredients gather their flavor and integrity. Is there anything better than potatoes roasted in duck fat? The potato galette pictured below was prepared by brushing the cast iron skillet with duckfat and then arranging the thinly sliced potatoes in a spiral pattern around the pan. I sliced these on a mandolin. I did three layers and each layer was brushed with liquid duck fat and then salted and peppered. The final touch, a drizzle of heavy cream, a scattering of kalamata olives, chili flake and flat leaf parsley...salt and pepper. Roasted in a 400 degree oven til golden brown.

There are many health benefits to duck fat. Duck fat contains 35.7% saturates, 50.5% monounsaturates (high in linoleic acid) and 13.7% polyunsaturated fats.(Which contains Omega-6 and Omega-3 essential oils). This compares to olive oil which is: 75% monounsaturated fat (mostly oleic acid) 13% saturated fat and 10% Omega-6 linoleic acid and 2% Omega-3 linoleic acid. The main difference between chicken, turkey and duck is that duck contains more linoleic acid, which chicken and turkey contain a higher amount of polyunsaturated fats. It seems as if duck fat is more like olive oil than it is like butter.

The complexity and richness of flavor is an added bonus to the health benefits.

The New Year's Day Pizzas

Woke early on the new year's first day. Lit the wood oven, and made offerings and intentions
as the fire began to take hold and burn. Offerings of Copal and 
Sage, Sandalwood and handfuls of forest moss and lichen.
the southern skies blazing crimson, fragrant with the incense smoke, the sea swell pounding and the faint barking of seals,

I prayed, for peace, for rain, for equality and prosperity for all, for our collective hearts to be filled with love, connectedness and community.

I slathered the bottom of the pizzas with Hot Ajvar, a yummy Turkish red pepper condiment , that is a beautiful backdrop for the other ingredients. Fresh goat cheese, arugula, paper thin sliced white onion and preserved meyer lemons, marinated lamb, oodles fresh mint and flat leaf parsley, Ras el Hanour....a drizzle of cilantro infused olive oil.
Our New Year began with the gathering of friends and family, all we usual suspects, feteing, sated, and  blessed with more pizza than we could eat.

Dinners At the Whale Bar

Beginning Monday, January 16th, I'll be offering a prix fixe 3 course dinner served family style
