Carmel Belle Pop-Up at La Mirada Coming Up!!

If you've been following me for awhile, you know my complete and utter adoration of pop-up dinners.

Seriously, take a great chef and host a dinner in a new venue, or at least a different kind of cuisine, and - voilà! - instant fun. We've met new friends, celebrated with old friends, had family date nights, and enjoyed romantic date nights at pop-ups all around the bay.


Last February, Jake and I went to the inaugural collaborative pop-up dinner between Carmel Belle and Monterey Museum of Art, La Mirada. It was The Perfect Friday Night. Here's a shot of Chef Kyle Odell serving a dish that evening.


Then, last September, Carmel Belle was back at the La Mirada; Jake and I went for their Autumn Pop-up. Here's a shot of the menu from that evening. I still think about that food!


I just heard that they are planning a new one and there are only a dozen tickets left.

Chef Kyle will be cooking up a seafood dinner inspired by the current exhibit at the La Mirada, Armin Hansen: The Artful Voyage.  They are sourcing the fish from H&H Seafood, a sustainable small boat fishery based in Santa Cruz.  The food will be paired with wines from Scheid Vineyards.   

If you're interested in food and art, take a look - purchase tickets here. It's next Tuesday, January 26th, from 6:30pm to 9pm. I'll be going. If you're local, join me!

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
