This is our chance to taste a meal prepared from the seasons. There is a reason that all great chefs of the world use seasonal, local ingredients. When you stand next to a farmer you work with, and hold a tomato still warm from the sun, or spend a day foraging for mushrooms, inspiration fills you. There is an appreciation that comes from using great products that makes our jobs so much better. We go out of our way to seek the best products, and to honor those who grew them by doing our best at serving them in ways that make food memorable. This is how we create great experiences, traditions, and communities.
