Friday September 14th -
Wow, where did August and early September go. I took a quick trip to San Diego to witness my youngest son get married. That is the only thing I did July and Augsut.
Beginning to move to fall, hope the weather stays this way for a while. Our fresh fish delivery will be affected by the Hurricane as Morehead NC was on of the docks that we purchased from
I hope they make it through the storm with out to much damage. Lots of activities the rest of the Month, Franke Center for the Arts, Premiere of The House with the clock in the wall, Great
Escape Stage Company is performing "A Wrinkle in Time" this week and next. Skeleton Fest is coming on September 29th. Thank you as always for your patronage, God Bless, Richard

I was very excited to be able to bring in Fresh Alaskan Halibut for this week. We will be pan frying it with our house seasoning (Paprika, garlic, ancho chili, thyme, oregano, black pepper)
It is a beautiful fish - I fillet it this afternoon, the difference between the fresh and frozen is amazing. Please come and enjoy. Our local farms are putting out great produce right now, we are using
Red Tomatoes and Golden Tomatoes, Green, and Wax beans, onion, Blueberries, and peppers. Enjoy the county fair this week, support the 4H as they show their animals and other talents

August all ready - Our local farmers are producing a great amount of vegetables, tomatoes coming on strong. We picked up some golden tomatoes, and are using them in the Caprese Salad, Watermelon Feta Salad also from local farmers products, green and wax beans for our fresh vegetable. I am continuing to try to find recipes for vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free items, at a reasonable cost. I am always looking for ideas and suggestions. Have a great month of August, enjoy it as it will pass quickly.

Eight years ago we opened Zarzuela, I have been a great experience, and at times a humbling one. We have grown and improved over those first shaky days. I remember the wonderful catering events, great dinners, building the business following. Other items the fire next door in August of 2012, the terrible winters of 13-14 and 14-15 are also memories that are also part of the adventure. The wonderful staff that have worked for us, and have done remarkable jobs. Dan, and Rick have been the culinary team that provides excellent food for us and great ideas for new menu items. The high school students that worked for us and moved onto college and careers in many fields. To Martha my wife a great thank you for allowing me to start this journey and continues to support our mission to provide a dining experience that is deliciously different. I have also learned that as difficult it may be to rely on Jesus Christ to provide the direction that we move in as it is clear his direction is a better choice than my plan.
Please come visit us again soon,

I was able to secure some wild caught salmon, the recipe we are using produces a delightfully moist dish, served with the local green beans. The golden tile fish is prepared with a compound butter with coconut milk, and lime juice, Lime zest. Just as a reminder the Impossible Burger is in the house and ready for ordering. It has received good comments from all who tried it. We are continuing to look for vegetarian, or vegan recepies. Next week we are trying making meat balls with the Impossible Burger product with our Carrot, onion, roasted red pepper sauce.
