I had dinner with Zach at Lark. We shared a bunch of dishes, including Pork Rillettes. I actually can’t remember what else we ate because the Pork was so good it made me forget everything else. It had great pork flavor and the perfect meat to fat ratio. [I’ve been looking for a recipe that would live up to this, but have not found anything yet. Although, this looks promising, and this too.]

After dinner we walked across the street to the Seattle U campus and I showed Zach the church where my friend did an installation. It’s so beautiful and it smells like honey.

Then we had dessert at Supreme where we had an amazing berry semifreddo [which prompted a summer-long obsession with them—this is my favorite one so far]. The semifreddo was served with a great and unusual chilled, sparkling dessert wine: Marenco Pineto Brachetto d’Acqui ‘03 [haven’t been able to find in Seattle yet…].

It was a very good night for food.
