Starters & Amuse Bouche

Asian Scrambled Tofu Lettuce Wraps (Vegan): the dish I would cook for someone who said they will never enjoy tofu.

Avocado Crab Salad on Crostini: combines every great flavor element for a perfect bite and stunning opener

Bacon Wrapped Dates: stuffed w/cheese, use a rich sauce, or, preferably, something with acidity or similar to cut through the richness. As good as it sounds.

Pretzels & Pretzel Bread (Vegan): not going to lie, pretzels are one of those things that are better when they’re not vegan. That being said, these are still really good, just not as good as the original…

Salami Bruschetta (Vegetarian, can be Vegan): one of my all time favorites, first discovered at Transfer Pizzeria, the garlic/shallot spread is a big winner, the taste of the olive oil makes a big difference in bruschetta, so choose wisely.

Shrimp & Pork Dumplings: my first food post, the pictures aren’t flattering, but the pan-fried dumplings are especially good, use seasoning liberally! To be completely honest, better without the shrimp, would love to try with some ahi tuna…

Spanakopita (Vegetarian): phyllo dough, cheese, spinach, butter. Hard to go wrong…

Tofu Ceviche (Vegan): first foray into molecular gastronomy produced a big time winner
