ck and i attended the severson and hamilton talk on thursday night. i'd been looking forward to this for some time. i've been fortunate to have heard kim severson speak before.....so i already knew how witty, sharp, and wickedly funny she is. quite frankly, she was the reason why i wanted to buy the tickets. she absolutely delivered. during the talk, there was an earthquake/after shock and she suggested that the bloggers write that gabrielle hamilton "rocked the house"....and i couldn't help but think that it was ms. severson that rocked the house. while the focus of the talk wasn't on kim severson's spoon fed, i am a big fan of this work. i am also a fan of gabrielle hamilton's bones, blood, and butter. both books, from my perspective, are brave works. both are brave in their willingness to show vulnerability and truth. i have much respect for the books.
anyway, after our visit to biergarten, we headed to sebo. i was extremely excited about our visit to sebo. while ck hadn't been before....i have. i find that after a visit to sebo, i end up recalling it for some time afterward. i love the food. just love it. i love the way it tastes. i love the way it looks. i love the clean flavors. we had the omakase (6 course tasting menu), the broiled eggplant, and the brussels sprouts. i was rather thrilled that ck loved it as well. it was a great addition to the evening....before we headed to the talk. the plates were pretty clean by the time they were cleared away.
