inevitably after returning home from a vacation, my kitchen becomes a reflection of the place i've most recently visited. while i am positive i'll never be able to recreate the magic of pok pok wings from portland or fermented tea leaf salad from san francisco, you can be sure that each of these cities has changed the way i cook.
