At a much higher level of culinary sophistication, Kip Laramie, the owner of Santa Fe Cafe, gave a walking presentation on cooking with fresh, local food. He described making pork loins with fresh peach salsa, shitake mushrooms with quinoa, blueberry vinaigrette, paddypan squash, soft-shell crabs with a New Mexican twist, as well as a lot of other tasty-sounding dishes.

He also obviously has a great love for making good food.
