Our First Degustation Menu

So we checked the answering machine at work last night before we left, and there was quite an interesting message on the recorder.  A couple had called and asked if we could do a Degustation menu for them and pair it with wine.  This was a no brainer, and we as a team jumped at the opportunity.  This was the first time any one has called in almost a year, and basically asked us to give them our best shot.  We pulled out some of the big guns, and I think that we crushed it out of the park as a team.  Thank you to my crew, Rob for pairing the wines, and of course the customer.  The menu is as follows.

Compressed Yellow Watermelon, Cherries, Feta, Watermelon Paint, Cantaloupe Paint, Pickled Watermelon Rind, Mache, Saba Vinegar

Salmon Crudo, Togarashi, Avocado Carpaccio, Granny Smith, Jicima, Puffed Old World Grains, Yuzu, Baby Cocoanuts, “powders”
