another year fades, a new one begins…

As the last year fades into the what hopes to be the bright start of the next, I plot and plan for 2010 and I think of all the wonderful opportunities that this year will hold for us.  I am so looking forward to what this year may bring us. It’s still far too early yet to get the gardens started, but I’m planning the start none the less. I’m looking at the many exciting new ways to make the restaurant better, more sustainable, and ways to take the food and service places its never been, for us and for our guests.  I find myself reading more than ever, and looking at peers for constant inspiration, direction and support.  We’ve a beautiful food community here in Providence, not without its challenges, but then again, what is?  What is important is that the relationships are there and the common thread of the want for lives filled with integrity-driven, honest passionate food and food sources exists (what a wonderful starting point!).  I look dauntingly at the world of technology that lies before us, both culinary and media driven, and know that though I have my reservations about their use in my craft I must embrace the tools that will allow me to communicate, learn and create with more ease and accessibility.  I look forward to further developing our relationships and ties with our local farmers/producers and artisans, finding new methods and new products to be inspired with, cook and create.
