as good as it gets

There are menus I’ve saved, framed, and hung on the wall in my own kitchen like artwork, the ones printed on fancy textured cardstock and whose descriptions read like poetry: North Carolina yellowfin tuna, charred and encrusted in chili, in sesame, in smoked sea salt; Oregon Inlet triggerfish with seared greens; local red snapper topped with shaved radishes.

At the festival, there are musical prodigies right along-side musical geniuses, who propagate the rich heritage of NC mountain music through MerleFest — a worthy goal! Paula Pittman Johnson VIA FACEBOOK GOOD ROOTS I tried your roasted carrots last night — they were wonderful (“Garden Gold,” April, page 37). I added a couple of cut-up red potatoes, a few onion slices, and a handful of gourmet tomatoes to the carrots. I topped the dish with parsley and chives from my herb garden, and it was delicious.
