I love the irony of this recipe. It is elegant and it is a burger at the same time. You can serve this recipe whenever you are looking for a recipe that will satisfy and surprise at the same time. The relish is perfect with the duck and adds another layer to flavor profile: sweet from the cherries and a crunch from the walnuts.

This is the taco for company! I have made this recipe over and over and everyone always loves it. It’s the chipotle sauce that makes it, and really how can you go wrong with salmon. It’s the kind of taco that drips down your arm – you are warned.

This salad was a collaboration of Olaiya Land and Sharon Campbell. Both agreed that the Cherry Cider and Salmon are a match and we thought arugula would work as the greens and that’s how we started. Cider reduction is something that I make frequently, but not with our Cherry Cider. Olaiya had this idea for the dressing and the cider became intense and rich. When the toasted coriander seeds were added to the cherry reduction and shallots it became marvelous. The dressing holds up perfectly to the strong flavors of salmon, hazelnuts and arugula, but it wasn’t until the creamy texture of the avocado was added that this salad became elegant.

I discovered ground buffalo (bison) when I was researching lean healthy meats. I wanted to experiment with it, but didn’t know where I would find it. Looking in the meat case at Whole Foods, there it was. I asked the butcher how much he sold a week and he told me over 70 pounds every few days. Here’s why I like it: excellent source of protein; low in saturated fat, and if the animal was grass fed and grass finished, the meat has a favorable ration of omega-3 to -6 ratio important fatty acids. It’s a red meat that is good for you! This chili is dense; thin it with more broth if you prefer a soupier dish.
