Sometimes it is just awesome to get blown away by food, not that I am all that hard to impress, but it takes a lot as a Chef to really blow me away…
Thus my experience at the Old Royal Inn in Mineral Point this past Monday.
Usually at the market on Saturday mornings you will find me set up next to Jennifer Bendorf selling delicious Cinnamon Rolls, Pecan Rolls and a variety of filled croissants that are home made by her husband Mark.
Jennifer has been on a raw food diet for quite a few months and we have talked about it before and have tasted some of her "experiments" in the past. Jennifer was telling me about Raw Food Chef Cathy Thomas and the ideas that Jennifer had picked up from Cathy and on Monday Jennifer and Cathy had a Raw Food Night at the Old Royal Inn, and it was excellent; four courses accompanied by an hibiscus-scented beverage. It was pretty impressive.
English Cucumbers filled with a Sun-Fried Tomato Tapenade and topped with a Macadamia nut cheese
Classic Caesar Salad with Organic Romaine, tossed with a creamy Caesar dressing finished with a Pine Nut Parmesan
Garden Pizza with a Sprouted Seed Crust, Seasoned Macadamia Nut Cheese and Finished with Seasonal Vine Ripened Heirloom Tomatoes
Black Forest Cherry Brownie and Vanilla Ice Cream
The menu was entirely raw Vegan and mostly organic…was pretty awesome….

There are not words that can describe my feelings of being in the same room with one that is undoubtedly the greatest man that walks on the face of the earth.
I got a visit from an old friend of mine from Tennessee just passing through to hang out with her CheffyBoy for a couple days and I took her to the public talk that the Dalai Lama gave before attending the weeks worth of teaching that was offered. Tammi Lee had left the day of the first teaching, so she was cruising to Memphis while I was in study with by far the greatest individual that graces this planet.

Dinner at the Old Royal Inn
This pic was really cute...took everyone to Cafe Four for what I consider some of the best Ice Cream and Jiang Ke couldn't make up her mind so she got a tasting of all of the ice cream that the rest of us didn't order...man could that girl EAT!!!
After we had dinner we went galavanting up and down High Street and through town before we went to Cafe Four for dessert.
