Essential to tiki cocktails, start by making your very own orgeat (pronounced OR-zha). If you can't find the orange flower water, slip in a large strip of orange peel to steep alongside the almonds after pulling them from the heat.

Cold Watermelon Soup


Tinged with hot sauce and sea salt, this soup retains it's sweet watermelon nature. Since chervil is rarely found at common markets, any mix of tarragon, parsley & mint would be an appropriate garnish.

Edamame Salad with Shiso & Meyer Lemon Vinaigrette
