Implode (Letters)

3 April 2010

My Dearest Giancarlo,

May this correspondence find you (and your beloved Rocco) lithe in body, vigorous in mind, and jubilant in spirit.

The worst of winter is over.

Spring has arrived, and along with it, the delectable tips of venerable asparagus from the Vale of Evesham. I’ve been experimenting with an appetizer, sautéing the crowns in an orange butter sauce, replete with scallops and fresh ginger. There is an immediate sensation of taste. The butter nourishes the asparagus, absorbing the stem in an exuberant embrace, whilst the scallops, sautéed in blood orange and slightly salted butter, compliment with a piquancy that can only be termed as rage. It is an interesting dish, and though flavorful, I cannot include it on the menu, as I cannot help but feel that something is amiss.

Though everything seems amiss. Everything is changing.

As you know, we have been diligently at work with Madison and I am pleased to announce that our doors will be opening in the following weeks. There will be a private dinner for friends and family next Friday and I would be honored if you would attend as my noble guest. All arrangements would be made on your behalf.

Please give Rocco my love.

With Warmest Regards,
Claire Mulberry

    Thank you.

    For allowing me to be apart of you,
    If only for a moment.
