|Erin Walker and Husband Colman Andrews with Ferran Adrià|
Colman Andrews is one of the best culinary writers of the 21st century.
He’s open, affable and entertaining in person. An amazingly prolific writer of over 2,500 articles and six books, I went home to my cookbooks and realized I had two cookbooks that he, a co-founder of Saveur Magazine, has co-authored; Saveur Cooks Authentic American, and Saveur Cooks French. Additionally, one of the most beautifully photographed and complete cookbooks ever published is his The Country Cooking of Ireland. This tour de force was awarded both the prestigious 2010 James Beard Cookbook of the Year and the 2010 James Beard International Cookbook. Top that!
My copy of “Ferran The Inside Story of El Bulli and the Man Who Reinvented Food" is to be savored. Skimming over the pages and reading select paragraphs, I see that it’s a well written, fascinating read. You know what I’ll be reading over the next few weeks. Buy a copy and check it out.
Sea Salt has a second floor balcony that’s now open for some lunches, truly the “catbird seat” to people watch over Naples Third Street South.
The second floor also houses a complete kitchen and dining area that will be completed by this summer. The roof top also features an herb and vegetable garden that already supplies some produce for the restaurant.
I stock my refrigerator from vendors such as Worden Farms, David and Jenny Burd, Captain Kirk’s Seafood, Jimmy P’s, Bamboo Café and Bella Maria. More on that to follow in a few weeks, when crops are harvested and Season starts!
I ate at Sea Salt recently, and loved the sesame encrusted tuna,
