HACC’s senior culinary reception for faculty, family and friends last night was terrific, from the student-run charcuterie station to the sushi trays to the grilled calimari, which stopped just short of al dente.
(That’s not easy. Most people cook squid into a rubber band you could shoot paper clips with.)
My favorite thing was the BLT: a crisp bacon flake stuck in creme fraiche on a grilled apple slice with some kind of arugula puree drops encircling it. Startling, funny, tasty.
Also, I’m no longer a sushi virgin.
