Kate and I met at The Kitchen for lunch today. Culture meets cuisine even
right here in Boulder, Colorado. Luckily, since The Kitchen is ‘good enough
to eat’, I saw a handful of other food people..food people? People who love
good food. Kate said,’I’m having the gnocchi with winter squash and sausage, can you think of anything more perfect?’ Some snow still on the ground, I thought, No. But I’ll have the phesant salad with chestnuts and
dried figs, because dried figs take me back to the fresh ones I picked off the tree this September in Tuscany, and the ones I wanted to pick from the wild trees growing from the rocks on the side of the road going up to Imlil in the Atlas moutains..but they were gone..maybe they were coming on my plate!
