Cooking is a commonsense practice, not alchemy. Listening and watching closely while you cook will reveal a richly shaded language understood by all the senses - the degrees of a simmer, the aroma of a roast telling you it is done, the stages of elasticity of kneaded dough, the earthy scent of a vegetable just pulled from the ground - it is everything to mind these details. This is cooking. ~ Chez Panisse Cookbook

Richard and I went to Steenbock's for lunch again, and forgot to take pictures :(
But again, we remembered for dessert!
Carrot Cake with candied nut crumble, crispy carrot, sweetened mascarpone, carmel, and vanilla ice cream
