I’m barely settled in from a monster 26 days on the road. Peru to San Fran to DC. Whew! To be straight with you, I am still gathering my balance. My desk is a disaster both at work and home. My Machu Picchu brain is long gone and the to=do list is gigantic. Tomorrow will be a kick-ass-take-names kind of day. I didn’t want another week to go by without a proper post although our Instagram stream has been doing a pretty good job of chronicling us real time.
I can’t even begin to post the tasty from Peru. There’s so much to consider. (coming soon). As I sort through that, here’s a bite from San Francisco that’s worth the stop. Grilled lamb chops served with sauteed chanterelle mushrooms. You’ll find a lot of super simple plates at Farina but you can’t go wrong with lamb chops. They barely need salt and pepper because the flavor of the meat is so big and distinct. Paired with an earthy mushroom only compliments the protein and pushes you closer to that elusive umami.
