Last Thursday my friend Richard rounded me up to help out with cooking. He was preparing a Native American style feast with his new friend Gabriele Kushi. Gabrielle is a personal chef, cookbook writer and health coach. It was a spur of the moment invitation. The meal was for an opening at a local gallery owned by Richard’s friend Todd. The menu consisted of wild rice with roast duck, smoked fish, sun choke salad, blueberries in yogurt, roasted blue potatoes, mushroom galette, squash and a fresh veggie plate with a dip. It all went so fast! Richard and Gabrielle had prepped the food and the work was in full swing when I arrived.
I did some veggie chopping and plate washing. The bulk of the work whizzed on around me. Of course I documented with off the cuff photos. A good time was had by all. The food was a success! Richard said that the guests were a little unsure about the blue potatoes…but once they tried them, they were liked. The artists of cooking were hard at work. Watching two chefs work was a lesson in smooth coordination.
