And speaking of California, I just learned that One Kings Lane will be featuring Alice Waters on their "Get Inspired" page later today. Waters will be sharing menus and step-by-step recipes from the kitchen of Chez Panisse. Recipes will include Heirloom and Cherry Tomato Salad, Roast Pork Loin with Rosemary and Fennel, Mulberry Ice Cream, and Grilled Boneless Lamb Leg with Olive Sauce. I'd say this is my kind of weekend homework.
Also as part of One Kings Lane's partnership with Waters and The Edible Schoolyard (an organization that teaches urban public school children how to grow and prepare seasonal, nutritious produce), OKL will be selling Waters' "In the Green Kitchen" cookbook at a discounted price.
I'm completely intrigued by the Mulberry Ice Cream and may have to take a stab at it. Now I just need to figure out where to buy mulberries in Atlanta.
