This is my neighbor.
And this is his store.
And this is my neighbor in his store.
Last week I met a lovely woman named Cate Conniff who works here.
Cate wrote this cookbook.
And then, after describing how she "scraped the carmelized flesh of the butternut squash from the skin", Cate served us this.
amazing Cali 351 Chardonnay that Cate's husband Michael was pouring, or the heady fragrance of the toasted pumpkin seed oil steaming from the soup, but I ran to the register to call this book my own.
Given that I can walk to Tyler's beautiful store, or drive to Greystone in 45 minutes, I truly am a Foodie in Paradise.
Enjoy your weekend!
