After spending a few weeks across the globe for Season, I’m finally back home. I went to the UAE for the Sharjah International Book Festival, visited London for the first time and wrapped up in Seattle before I headed home. I did miss home a bit but it was also difficult to see how much the smoke from the recent fires has taken over the air in the Bay Area, some of you might remember the terrible fires that ravaged the wine country region, to see this happen once again and so soon is sad but even worse for those who have lost their homes and loved ones.

The London food scene was amazing: some of my favorites were Gunpowder London, Brat and Darjeeling Express. I visited a few lovely bookstores; Daunts, Waterstones, and Books for Cooks (this one is also a restaurant and has an amazing collection).

This year for Thanksgiving, we’re headed out to visit my in-laws in Virginia but before that happens I wanted to suggest a few options for the holidays.

A whole roasted Romanesco (a cauliflower will also work here) rubbed with a pistachio seasoning, drizzled with warm melted ghee and served over a bit of garlicky yogurt.

Amazon just named Season as one of their best cookbooks of the year!

I was interviewed by the lovely Julia Leonard at the Independent in UK
