I pride myself for being a epicurean who prefers not to use conventional recipes. I prefer to create different delectable dishes daily for everyone to enjoy. I use all locally harvested fruits and vegetables -- for example from Providence Organic Farm right next door, King Orchards, and from Friske Orchard, whose farm stand is so popular that bus tours stop there. For dinners choose from so many wonderful restaurants in the area. Go to my website to see a long list of restaurants to choose from.
