a good friend and i treated ourselves to a vegetarian repast after having our toes pedicured last week. both of us hadn't been to this nearby well-known madison valley veg restau in a few years. the last time we dined there was also together.
i am no food stylist, unlike my talented coauthor. however, i present my image of the dish i ate: yakima valley polenta -- dykstra farm bing cherries soaked in a port sauce with a saute of local snap peas, and walla walla onions served over sage polenta and cambazola blue cheese. it was as tasty as it was pretty. the dish was a perfect accompaniment to my company, also pretty, and very kind.
