I can’t wait to try (and write a review of) The Black Hoof charcuterie restaurant.  BlogTo has a good review already up and there is a good discussion of this restaurant on Chowhound.  Best of all the chef has a behind-the-scenes blog that I’ve added to the list of links on the right.  This blog is a rare insider view that is obviously written by an insider before he is told to do so by his publicist.  Check it out.

I also have the upcoming Seedy Saturday event on my radar.   Last year it was a great opportunity to find some of the seeds that eventually became a big part of my garden.  I’m glad to see that the venue has changed for this year (it was very crowded last year) and that it is a bit earlier (this Saturday, February 28).
