I've been cooking up a storm teaching dinner and brunch at Stonewall Kitchen in York at their cooking school about every 4-6 weeks. I've been accumulating new recipes for new cookbook(s)...and testing them at Stonewall! And now I'm writing the 2nd edition to the Art of Breakfast, as we are expanding beyond breakfast and adding brunchy items, savory and sweet small plates, creative egg dishes and 10 specialty poached egg dishes. AND cocktails to take you from brunch to happy hour! And photographing them all. By the way, my photog skills have come a LONG way since 2010 when I wrote the first edition. So I am replacing a lot of the photos, though not all.
So while the Art of Breakfast will still allow me to focus on my specialty of creative breakfast dishes, I'm really adding a lot that can be done for brunch, lunch, happy hour, a buffet, appetizers you can bring to a get together and so much more. It's all about transformation over the years and going with my creativity and trusting my palate!
And then I decided to enter the Boothbay 7th annual Claw Down Lobster competition (my first time) on September 20, 2018 and WON 1st place for both judges' and people's choice for my Lobster Wonton!
And YES, it will be a recipe in the new edition. It was apparently a huge hit, so why not bring it to the masses?!
