The Doctor’s Dinner

After a long day at the office, the doctor dropped down the street to Aldea, a beautiful local restaurant with a brilliant, fresh-market approach to food.

Taking a seat at the bar, the doctor and friend were served a crusty fresh-baked whole wheat bread, with a dipping dish of extra virgin olive oil.

Next, he dined on a brilliantly-hued Butternut and Kabocha Squash Soup, and a delicious Shrimp Alhinho appetizer prepared with garlic, coriander, and pimento.  His main course was fish—a dazzling Sea-Salted Chatham Cod with braised cranberry, baby shiitake mushrooms, and tarragon-parsley coulis.  From beginning to end, the meal was all True Food.

After dinner, star Chef George Mendes swung by to say hello and receive proper kudos.

Though dinner in such high style doesn’t have to be a daily occurrence, and you can definitely dress it down at home, the operating principle should always stay the same: the best ingredients, and an artful preparation that remains essentially simple at heart.
