Tasty Tuesday: NYE Noshes

In 2011, I resolve not to go to Whole Foods – or any grocery store for that matter – on a holiday or holiday eve. After nearly 20 minutes in the parking lot at the North location, we braved the crowds for a few specialty items to help ring in the new year.

Chef Cory’s not exactly bald, but his head is shaved/buzzed…does that count? Nonetheless, he had a spectacular menu to celebrate a terrific year and welcome the next.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get a photo of the final plated dinner.
