Cafe con leche and Cuban toast.
When you have a Cuban friend that happens to be one of the best pastry chefs in America, and he makes you Cuban bread, what else are you going to do?
Gracias,  @krzchfal & @fillingemulsify for a perfect breakfast. #cubanfood #cafeconleche #pantostada

Food prep is meditation. While my hands work, my mind is free.

When you want ramen on Sunday, you start cooking on Friday.

The beginnings of Concord grape jelly. Picked these grapes myself last night, from a vine growing in my friend’s yard.
It’s the simple things that I love most about food.

The result of playing around in the kitchen: red cabbage cured halibut. Flavor is excellent, with a mild sweetness, citrus notes, and a hint of cardamom. Texture is delicate, but a bit too soft. I think I'll cook it sous vide just long enough to firm it up a bit. Super happy with this result, stay tuned for the complete dish on Wednesday! #chefjlooney #playingwithmyfood #purplefood

Sometimes when I cook, I've got no fucking idea what I'm doing, but I've got pretty colors to play with and the memory of a photo that inspired me. Curious to see how this one turns out.
