In the cooking demonstration, led by Stefan, he prepared a Nutmeg and Thyme Crusted Halibut served with very light/thin mashed potatoes (used Yukon Gold Potatoes). We received a small plate to try and I must say it was pretty delish. I definitely could have used a second serving, though could be because that was my lunch! The end of the demonstration ended with a question from someone from the crowd: What ingredient and what utensil would they bring if they were going to be stranded on a deserted island? Hosea's response: Definitely Duck! His reasoning was that it could provide eggs, meat and of course foie gras. For his utensil he chose a spoon which he feels is the most versatile (serving spoon, spatula and as a garnish...though not sure you really need to garnish anything if you're stranded on an island). Stefan got the most laughs when his two things were a Bud Light and an ice cold glass for the Bud Light. Priceless!
Tip: Stefan will be opening his new restaurant in Santa Monica August 1st. Wouldn't give out the name except for "Stefan's [blank]."
