Buzzards Bay Swim

Dear Friends,

On Saturday, July 2, Chef/Owner Steve Johnson will be participating in the Buzzards Bay Swim, an annual fund raising event organized by The Coalition for Buzzards Bay.  The purpose of this event to help raise awareness about the preservation and improvement of our local coastal environment and to raise funds to support the research and programs sponsored by The Coalition.  I’m writing to ask you to join me in this effort by making a donation — please consider sponsoring my swim!

If you would like to do so, just click here!

And if you’re in the area that morning, you’re certainly welcome to swing by and cheer us on!
Many thanks! – Steve

Chef shows menu need not shrink in a galley kitchen

Chef shows in a small space what matters most

“In summer, Steve Johnson, chef-owner of Rendezvous in Cambridge, lives on a boat with a small kitchen. He concocted a similarly small space to demonstrate to a class how to grill clams, saute mushrooms, and make vegetable stew”

Recipes from the article:

Fluke with Salsa Verde
