Shelley's dinner

Great session today and dinner a success.

* Pureed edamame, with lemon juice and shredded zest, and served with black soybeans, simmered with tamari till dry, and garnished with tufts of flowering chives and enoki mushrooms.
* Live salad was especially good: barely sprouted mung beans, tiny intense grape tomatoes quartered, a whole cucumber seeds and all, but peeled, and diced, daikon peeled and diced (all dicing is small), fresh mint, lime, salt, and fresh green chili or black pepper.

Everything else worked out fine: Yukon gold potatoes, cauliflower, roasted red onions with cranberries, carrot poriyal (forgot to add the shredded coconut), and the greens, which were divine--finely julienned collards, diced poached bosch pears, and sauce of poaching liquid reduced to a syrup, with pomengrantes molasses and vinegar. The sticky rice and medjool dates were spectacular.
