Several months ago a prominent restaurant architect returned from a trip to Japan bringing us a small gift of green tea. He said, "I have no idea if this is any good, but I loved the packaging. I just had to give it to you."
March is the ideal time to pack-up shop and get away. Winter is supposed to be over, but somehow it feels like it's just getting worse. Unfortunately, some of us are no longer in a stage of life where taking a week off to drink tequila is acceptable or mandated by university scheduling.
It's time to say goodbye to summer and hello to school, busy schedules, turning leaves and chilly weather. Let loose this weekend and have a great time, and try these light and luscious recipes for your final summer soiree.
