I am very excited to be involved with CHEFS.  CHEFS (Conquering Homelessness through Employment in Food Service) is a great program that teaches the culinary arts to some of San Francisco’s homeless and formerly homeless adults.  The 24 week program starts with 12 weeks of hands-on training followed by a 12 week internship program.  The goal of the program is to provide culinary training and job placement for certain San Franciscans aspiring to an independent life.  CHEFS is an organization developed by the great people at Episcopal Community Services of San Francisco

Lobster, Salted and Compressed Melon, Melon Sorbet and Caviar

A real tasty dish, the only thing the that is missing from the picture is the melon sorbet, aged balsamic and olive oil.  The sorbet was made out of ripe melon puree and equal parts of corn syrup and sugar.  We added the sugar mix to the puree till it had a brix level of 21.5.  Froze it overnight, then spun it with a paco jet.
