  1. I watched this episode last night at 2am, New Mexico time. If there was a market open at that time, I would have gone shopping. This all looked so good.

    When you were in the restaurant’s kitchen, lovely lady was mashing up tomatoes in what looked like a wood fired pot or bowl, can you tell me if that is what I saw? The outside looked like the micaceous pots that I wood fire in my backyard pit. Just wondering.

  3. Hi Patie! Its 2 am in the morning. I have just finished watching this episode, and I can’t wait to try the recipes. The brittle! The lasagne! the Pork! and the pickled red onion! I live in New Mexico, in a very rural area. If there was an open market near me, I would be there. Have a lovely 2017.
