Soo exciting to come to Pure Food and Wine for the 1st time! The one thing thats more exciting than that.. is getting to have a tour of the kitchen!!
This is the dining room empty.. it was just starting to fill up when we arrived. 5:45 Friday.. we had reservations for dinner a few hours later at 7:30.
I love the color, it's my favorite- a cherry red, almost pink - How could I not love this place!!??
Tara, the sous chef gave us a tour.. she was great. Showed me how they fire orders and the stations - it was great to see them at work. & a perfect time, it wasn't too busy yet. I really didn't want to inconvenience anyone, it was so nice of them to show me around!
Everyone here is amazing! This is Joey the bartender.. he was showing us around the kitchen also.
A peek into the dessert freezer - Mmm!! Their desserts are phenomenal - I think Jana is a genius! : )
Laura in the One Lucky Duck juice and takeaway, looking in from the kitchen.
The private room seats about 20.
It was quite dark, but this is also a view of the private room.
I had a peek into the large online and pastry kitchen. They are making incredible creations in here. Lots of dehydrators!
The dishwashing room..
Here is Laura and Tara..
In the kitchen they prep in the morning and daytime and then before dinner they clear it into prep stations to plate food.
Sometimes there are many of them in the kitchen - but they seem very organized! All of the food is prepared fresh each day. I hear left-overs are eaten by the staff after the restaurant has closed - that would be a definite perk to working here! Along with the fun.. they all seem like a big family, most have worked here for a long time.
A few dishes being plated: Nori Rolls..
Plate of Assorted Cultured Dr. Cow Tree Cheeses and Rosemary Crisps
A bowl of soup. Oh we covered almost the whole menu, but we didn't have the soup. Guess I'll have to come back. ; )
After having a great tour of the place we went back over to the juice bar and got Coconut water and I had a huge green juice. I asked Laura if I could have Garlic instead of the Ginger & Lemon.. and she asked if I would like some Jalapeno too.. It was like she knew me!!! Amazing. Yes, please.. and then she asked if it was ok to put in some pear to balance it out.. It was incredible!
Laura is a most creative Juice Goddess, a Juice Intuitive and Angel extraordinaire!!
Thank you - You are wonderful!
