As some of you may know I recently started a new job as a Personal Chef and it has required me to travel to Martha's Vineyard for the summer. Don't you feel sorry for me already? It is beautiful here, I am staying 2.5 miles away from the beach, and not a single stop light to be seen on the entire island. It's true, stop lights aren't allowed, and I kind of love it.
I am getting settled and slowly adjusting to the schedules of my new bosses, and also to their likes and dislikes. This is selection of some of the things I have cooked for them thus far. They range from simple to upscale with everything from filet mignon and crab cakes, to fried rice and chicken soup.
I have had a few free nights here so far, and I am sampling the local fare every chance I get! The restaurant scene here is great. They don't allow any chains, no Subway, no McDonald's or Domino's, NOT EVEN a Starbucks! I am more than okay with this though, it's actually refreshing. It forces locals and tourists alike to eat local and support the small businesses on the Island.
I am loving it so far, despite the relatively chilly weather, compared to the sweltering New Orleans summer. I am looking forward to sharing more of my food adventures and giving you a taste of Martha's Vineyard.
