Taking a walk the through the garden this morning I was greeted by the smell of basil. It made me think about the taste of summer. As a young child I was always in my moms garden. Then and now I love to walk in the garden and graze. Those who work in our restaurants know I’m constantly “tasting” whatever they are chopping, cleaning or cooking. It’s my way to gather flavor profiles and have a little snack at the same time. I associate cherry tomatoes, green beans and squash with summer gardens. Strawberries, blackberries and apples as well. The latter a fall favorite. I posed the question to our social media followers “what does summer taste like to you?” I’ll report back on what they said. How about you? What does summer taste like?
