Five Minutes with Santos Martinez, Capricho Restaurant:
“People don’t understand how the kitchen will eat you up. I’ve worked with hundreds of people, from dishwasher to line cook, and they didn’t make it. If you have to be willing to put down the hours, your sweat, your tears, and it will show.“
The first day of 60 degree temperatures in Wilmington, and we’re are thinking about soup and sandwiches. Specifically tomato basil soup. Nothing is more satisfying to both cook and to eat on a lazy weekend Sunday than a lovely, creamy soup like this super easy tomato and fresh basil combination. Add a grilled cheese sandwich, and you’ll never open a can again. From our foodie perspective, that’s a really good thing.
This chocolate ganache tart is simply deceptive. It’s elegant and absolutely delightful. A chocolate lover’s dream. Serve this French ganache tart with whipping cream and fresh berries. Or sprinkle with sea salt and drizzle with dulce de leche. Consider it a simple, elegant, chocolate canvas for your favorite chocolate accompaniments.
“Stop over, we’ll make you a little lunch,” was the invite. Comfort food abounding was the result.
We went on a salad mission, looking for seven sexy salads in Wilmington NC. Out we headed, for lunch… for dinner… and kept our eyes on the “salad” section of the menu.
Five Minutes with Jud Watkins, Wrightsville Beach Brewery:
“We took a concept and said, “Let’s do seafood that is as fresh as possible… you hear about ‘farm to table,’ we 100% do that, everything in the kitchen is local, and fresh. Then we take it a step further than that: we do ‘farm-and-boat to table.”“
