On a whim we journeyed down Highway 1 south to Big Sur. In search of some inspiration and fresh air we made fast plans. We hit the road early and found ourselves at Big Sur Bakery just in time for brunch service to begin. After setting up camp we headed for the mountains. The severe incline matched by the dramatic coastal landscape, each peak revealing itself as merely the base of the next. A persistent reminder that in order to see more clearly, the journey is a continuous arduous upward climb worth every step. After a quiet reflective drive back down the coast, we hit sunset just right overlooking the water. The rowdy group seated next to us filled the place with positivity as they celebrated 60 years of life. A moment I can only hope for and to be surrounded by such adoring loved ones. Huddled around the campfire, we sat in awe, so thankful for the adventure the day had given us.
This recipe is inspired by the mushroom and polenta breakfast at Big Sur Bakery.
