Bookending the nigiri portion of @88tamashii's omakase with Ika (in this case sumi) is a great choice. The filet with seasonal citrus and sea salt to start (highlighting the shari) and the tentacles (pictured above) with tsume in overtime for a sweet finish. πŸ“Έ: @elgranpete #notkaiseki

One of the keys to mastering yakitori is controlling the grill at very high temperatures. This hatsumoto, brushed with a 50 year old tare, from a 120 day chicken via @yakitorimaster exemplifies the control and skills that rival the top shops in Tokyo, even absent Japanese birds. #yakitori

Meet two stalwarts - Jocelyn (@jdc_eats_drinks) and Alba (#albaskitchen). Two amazing women that are so dear to me. For those of you that wonder who is behind those home-cooked meals that I regularly consume, look no further. While their respective cooking styles are completely different, their philosophies are quite similar. Both Alba and Jocelyn are fiercely committed to their families and friends and use food and cooking as a vehicle to bring people together and unite them around the "table". They are both incredible chefs and even better human beings. You will never find two more dedicated, hardworking people. This past Sunday, in honor of Mother's Day, Jocelyn baked Alba an impeccable Torta gianduia. I am so lucky, thankful and grateful to have these two women in my life always "dishing" out the hard truths and realities of life. I love you both dearly. ❀
