Fait Accompli

This will be quick, because I’ve been writing all day and desperately need a shower. Wednesdays we have the Farmers’ Market in town, so we wandered over to get a few things. Wild Hive has a table there, so we said hi to Don and grabbed some beans and a bag of his 10-grain mix. I like making it into risotto-y things, and since the wife had stopped at the fish market earlier for scallops, we were in business.

A simmering pot of roasted chicken broth and some little beets cut into small cubes (plus some minced dried porcini) were all I needed to make a creamy, deep fuchsia porridge of sorts which I topped with seared scallops and a little pan sauce made with sherry and pimentón. A salad on the side. Organic rosé. Aaaaw yeah.

Yours Truly

I'm a painter who happens to also spend a lot of time growing, making, and writing about food. I'm particularly interested in the intersection of frugal peasant cooking techniques and haute improvisation. And I have a really great personality.
