white evening

wf-29-controlled-cooling-plates1.jpgThis month has been a dream of meals. Dinners with friends, old and new, both close to home and far a field. We have had new tastes and ingredients as well as familiar comforts. But the special moment was the White Evening at Omen A Zen in New York City.
