Midsummer's Secret Kitchen~

It's been a hellova Spring! So much goings on in the kitchen that I've barely have any time when I'm not up to my elbows in food so I can blog!
This spring Secret Kitchen turned THREE! It's been three fantastic years of delicious food over lively discussions, birthdays, private events, and the like. Most if this year has been spent doing private events, and lots and lots of time experimenting in the kitchen. I've been learning cheesemaking, producing charcuterie, and pickling everything I can think to pickle!
But I have missed Secret Kitchen! And so, I present June's menu: A MidSummer's Secret Kitchen. Inspired by my daughter's request for fancy cotton candy and my desire to use foie gras in a menu before it's illegal. (not that I'm against black market products, obvs.)

The Valentine's Day dinner

Oh you sexy sexy people.
You deserve to eat sexy food. Food you can eat with your hands. Food you can share with your love. Food that makes your heart race.

I really like playing with the alchemy of food. Not only do I get to manipulate taste, but other sensations as well. The heart races with chilies, chocolate. The mind drifts with mugwort, chamomile, get the picture.

This year for Valentines Day, we have a special tasting menu: Love Bites.
Seven courses sure to excite and tantalize you.
