tempura wednesday

Posted in macrobiotics by jill on September 15, 2010

One of the most important things I’ve learned about cooking for a community is understanding the overall needs of what people want. The temperature of Becket is dropping daily, elderly and youth are running around in fleece and scarves. Perhaps some are sleeping restlessly. The job of a chef is to see this and compose a balanced meal to fit the overall mood. Today seemed to be something a little warmer, fried, oilier. Maybe this was the wish of our head chef – to tuck us into our beds a little earlier or take off a layer before yoga class. In any case, the crisp, vegetable-filled tempura and sweet potato soup and beans most certainly hit the spot.


Today’s lunch.



Vegetable tempura. The last ode to summer’s harvest, as seen in our weekly veggie shipment every Tuesday.


Rice garnished with nori and black/tan gomasio.
