    Hi My name is Charlie and I'm female.
    I have been receiving the Chef talk recipe for a long time but don't think I have posted before.
    I'm a housewidow, who just became an empty nester, although the grandchildren are here a lot so it doesn't get too lonely.
    I'm in my fifties and from Atlantic Canada.


    I love to cook and bake. I must be a decent cook because there are never any leftovers at potlucks and such and I'm always asked for recipes.

    I'm an avid recipe saver, and try each recipe. If I like it I keep it, if not I chuck it. If it is halfway decent I start tweaking.

    The first time I make a recipe I always go step by step in the ingredients. After that I admit that to about 95% of the recipes I start to play with.


    I just finished reading the article

    "The Art of Buying Local: An Evening with the Farmer and the Chef"

    The very last picture is not identified. It looks so delicious and like something I would like to make and try.

    Could anyone tell me what it is and perhaps supply a recipe?

    Thanks

    Hi Charlie,

    Welcome.

    Not exactly sure but it looks like a pan seared sea scallop perched on top of a bit of pesto and a slice of tomato. I'm sure theres more to it.

    Welcome aboard, Charlie.
    Brad said it right! I was at the event and what he described is spot on! Incidentally, the dish was produced by "Pizza by Elizabeths" in Greenville, Delaware.

    Thanks so much.
    Went looking on the net for a recipe, couldn't find one.
    I'll just have to wing it. Shouldn't be difficult.
    Thanks again.
