Nice things in my life lately are orange.
Prawns beriberi with butter and the Ethiopian hot pepper blend, beriberi powder.
Fresh apricot-colored oca, a South American starch, at Berkeley Bowl.
More jam, but this I made in Oakland with my friends from their very own loquat tree.
One of my favorite dishes at the Iron Chef Eugene competition, a rearranged arroz con pollo by Mike Meyer of Red Agave, with sauce swath inspired by dahlias brought by his daughter.
A Holy Donuts! pineapple-apricot upside down cake delivered to my door. Note to self: lend cookbooks to bakers! My neighbors came over to help me devour it.
