Santa Barbara Magazine

I have to admit my enthusiasm about being featured in the food and wine section of the December/January issue. I have lived in Santa Barbara for roughly four years. Every other month, I find myself combing through the magazine to see what Santa Barbara feels is important when it comes to food, eating and drinking. I always thought that my style of cuisine was maybe too avant-garde for the typical Santa Barbara palate. Great local produce, seafood and wine makes for simple rustic fair. I love using these wonderful ingredients but I enjoy taking my activa to the prawns, hitting the fennel veloute with lecithin and the walnut oil/banana puree always sings a little better with ultratex. Either way, like me or curse me for my culinary antics…Thank you Santa Barbara, and L.D Porter for your fluidity with words!
