concocted a snack for a kids' slumber party at the Museum of Natural History, and well, things went downhill from there.
For starters, Joe Jonas was the Quickfire's guest judge, which given his lack of culinary expertise makes total and complete sense.
Needless to say, we stayed the night there and did not drive home.
Sunday, March 13 We woke up, had some coffee, and headed into town.
Had to wash it down with something…had some whiskey and wine.
I ended the night with birthday cake and Miller Lights.
We also had some ceviche, and the grapefruit and orange salad. The night before, I had prepared some braised ribs, and sous vided a tri-pepper-crusted filet mignon.
I think I’m mildly obsessed with Cara Cara oranges right now, they’re so sweet and so good! I also made a poblano, cabbage, celeriac slaw with cilantro, rice vinegar, lime, and oil. I ate lots of BBQ ribs, filet, slaw and potato salad.
This didn't sit well with all of the All-Stars, whom despite losing their respective season have egos bigger than freaking Ostrich eggs. [There was a video here]The cheftestants finally arrive at the Museum of Natural History to distribute sugar-filled snacks to kids. As if being cracked out on artificial sweeteners wasn't bad enough, the kids completely lose it at the sight of Joe Jonas. [There was a video here]The kids vote on their favorite snack and the cheftestants think they're done for the night. Tom shows up to announce that they will stay overnight at the Museum because they will be serving breakfast the next morning.
It is late and some All-Stars are cranky about the less than accommodating sleeping conditions.
We got up and went for a short hike in the rain after that. We went to the Olema Tavern, and started off with a ton of Drake’s Bay oysters. I had an asparagus and egg salad, and then some cioppino. We made a stop at the Dipsea Café, right there off Highway 1. We had tandoori chicken, gobi aloo and an eggplant dish. I had family meal for lunch—which today was a Mexican braised chicken with black beans.
