Chef's Notes:

“Rich characteristics of the dish, with the abalone, quail and Monsoon Chai, just lends itself an exotic quality. The taste evokes a dark pink room, with a spicy fragrance wafting through the summer air.”

“We wanted to keep the ingredients local and seasonal. Ripe plums and juicy peaches. The quail and the abalone, all sourced locally. Then adding in the spice with the Monsoon Chai.”

Symbolism of the Elephants:

Elephants speak to the exotic nature and origins of our Monsoon Chai. Authentically steeped in the complexity of hand-ground cloves, cardamom, cinnamon, ginger and pepper, this chai pays tribute to every mother’s stovetop.

“Trunks entwine, reflecting life-long bonds, while all-knowing ears fan compassionate eyes. Triumphant trumpeting echoes with the fading marsala sun.”
