I'll have the Pork

This made me hungry! Sam, the very creative chef at the Rhumb Line restaurant in Ventura shared a work of art with me yesterday. This is something new he is working on, and let me tell you the aroma was enough to make me want to put my camera down and pick up a fork.

Now we've all heard the stories about inedible food used for photography. After the shoot the staff at the restaurant ate this dish to try the new item. No trickery here, and no Photoshop work either. Other than a few specks of dust, this is right out of the camera.

Frohe Weihnachten! Natale allegro! Merry Christmas!

This is an amazing little restaurant where we had a wonderful Christmas dinner today. The first thing that called our attention to this it was the Maitre D'. As we got out of our car the first night we were in Carmel he came over to the wall under the lamp post and howled at Zoe. He was very excited to see her, he explained in a German accent that he had grown up with hounds just like her. He then asked us if we were ready for dinner and told us that he had a patio where Zoe would be welcome.

We were not ready for dinner then, but he left a real impression on us. Any place that was that friendly to our hound had to be ok.

It was a good assumption, the waiters were very friendly and the food was absolutely delicious. A perfect Christmas memory! We will be back again for sure!
