and the Sky
NATURE'S GIFT. When I designed my Pan Seared Prawns with Star Thistle Honey Brunoise recipe I marveled as the flavors of the grapefruit, avocado and mango taken from branches in the sky, and the prawns from deep in the ocean were the most delicious yet unlikely of pairings. I wondered if the Star Thistle honey would serve as this dish's flavor unifer—it did. And there it was: a new addition to my menu that I eagerly served my wife. She loved it. Today, I still laugh when I'm in the kitchen creating new recipes because it is these unlikely parings of nature that always surprise me with their powerful taste explosions. Nature truly is a gift.—Zeke.
