Here is another guest blog entry, with "chef's notes" from the man himself. Enjoy! -A
On the Arctic Char: This is the tastiest damn fish on the planet. I grilled it on a cedar plank, because it's yummy that way. The fish was topped with coarse sea salt, pepper, Hungarian paprika, dried oregano, and lemon juice. That is all you need know.
On the clams: First I sweated some shallots and fennel in olive oil. I've never cooked with fennel before, but it seemed like it would work. Add white wine, bring to a boil, then devour the tasty bivalves right quick.
On the bruschetta salad: Roma and cherry tomatoes, lots 'o basil, half a bulb of garlic, 3-4 tablespoons of capers, roasted red peppers, red pepper and pepper --with diced fresh mozzarella thrown in. And... yummy.
