while waiting for the last permits to be approved, diane’s kitchen is still exploring new recipes, taking care of the restaurant design and has decided to go back to europe for christmas to get some fresh air as well as fresh ideas in order to welcome you in january with a genuine smile and lots of energy!
in the meantime, here is an update of the last recipes that we tried for you and that you can easily replicate at home…. it was an asian dinner and the idea was to serve something light but colorful… here is the menu that is on our blog :
we also anted to share with you the last pictures taken in the restaurant as we finished the last coating of the floor…. hope you will like it!
this week-end, diane’s kitchen installed her table on the green of Ponce Circle Park to take part to Coral Gable Bike Day….
as it was a day dedicated to cycles, we prepared food easy to grab for people on their wells as well as people on their feet….
that’s why we have associated our name with buddy fruits, those great fruit pouches that are so easy to carry, store and eat…. but most importantly, that are so healthy and yummy….
this was a great day, our tasting experts loved the event, the music, the bouncing castle, not only the purple but also the pink, the yellow…. buddy fruits pouches and they left with sticky fingers, bouncy belly and a few missing muffins!
yes…. it was a great sunny day and even if we were too busy to have a look around we still had time to spot a beautiful purple bike that would be very useful for our deliveries….!
maybe the next post will be dedicated to bike again….!
yesterday, diane’s kitchen was participating to the artisan food fest which is a monthly event that takes place at the coral gable museum.
as it was our first time, we were thrilled and scared at the same time. i had spent 2 days cooking all my signature dishes but it was worth it as they really loved it…. we have been lucky too as the day was sunny and the customers really nice and interested in meeting all the producers.
and i have to say that i was too…. i wish i had more time to speak with all of them but i also had to get ready and then to serve the customers but by the end of the day, i went around with a few financiers and took the time to have a little chat and trade a few products….
as a result i came back with unusual vegetables such as snake gourds and purple haze carrots from mr. green dean as well as delicious home-made hummus with a strong tahine flavor…. my favorite!
i also brought back spiced dehydrated kale that made me think to my friend sybille who still lives in london and loves to try new vegan and raw food recipes. she used to dehydrate any veg or fruit she had in her kitchen!
and for our nanny whose mother loves new products, i could not resist to bring back one of the freakin’ flamingo preserves. the range of flavors is amazing, you have sugar free options as well as rum options…. just have a look at the website, you’ll want to go for it!
yes, it was a really great day and we look forward to participate to the next one! hope to see you there…
this morning we went to homestead to visit teenaspride farm.
i brought my twins with me so that they discover the wonderful products grown out there.
the idea is to try to promote as much as possible the locally grown products such as herbs, tomatoes, squash, chards, eggplants, salads, beets…. and that is what teena does for chefs as well as for private customers.
you should have a look at her website or visit her farm, everything is spotless and well organized, she is really kind and loves being surrounded with kids and most important, she is passionate with what she does!
