|Chef Chris a Very Good Host|
|Kitchen Theater @ Underbelly|
|Colorful Roasted Beets|
|Perfectly Cooked Shrimp|
I was with colleagues Andy and Dave who had flown in for a meeting and were brave enough to follow me to Underbelly. I would venture to say that both of them were very glad they made the visit. We started with the Roasted Beets that were accompanied by Preserved Strawberry Puree, Goat Cheese and candied Pecans. The greatness of the dish was in the colors and earthy taste combined with the sweetness of the Strawberries. As you can see in all the pictures Chef adds slivers of raw Radish's, Turnips and Parsnips to enhance the flavor and increase the color. We then went with the Seared Shrimp bowl with Wheat Berry, Quail Egg, Artichoke Hearts, Radish and Turnip slices. The Shrimp were cooked perfectly plump and full of moisture this plate was not prepared to pop in your mouth but more to sooth your taste buds.
