Nice! Where are you opening the Bistro? On the island?

CapeChef,

 

That is what freshness is all about, just superb.

Your herb garden is lush.

So your opening a Bistro ? Have you found a name yet ?

As always you reinvent yourself all the time. Look forward to more news on it.

 

Félicitations!

 

Petals.

Yes, I'm 'here' LOL

Can't say that I've tried the local wine, but the Cape Cod Beer Company Growlers have met their demise on more than one occasion :)

Nice looking place Chef, Congrats! The lounge looks awesome but don't you need to get those herbs in the ground?

I thought all wines in Northern America had added sulfites in ?

 

Even the wines imported by worldwide guru Kermit Lynch, which most of the time are from all natural winemakers, have sulfites added when the bottles have to go to the USA, where I in Amsterdam can drink the same wine without any additives.

 

Drinking an all nature gamay this evening, and salute you all,

Shroom, I have been blessed with getting my hands on some tasty fungi. Not to much in New England right now (wild). Look forward to spring!

 

Why not come out and we can forage!
