Utah is a tribute to the wonder of travel, the thrill of seeing a place so wholly unlike that from which we came. In this case, it's the landscape of the desert, its heat radiant on your skin and how you feel changed just by feeling it.
Utah is a warm glow, something sunbaked that casts our other glazes in a new and unexpected light.
Pair with: Hatch Green Chiles, southwestern bean dip, and other earth-toned tools for cooking and eating.
A Perfect Pot Of Beans
The waiting is the hardest part, as the song goes, but cooking your own beans is the way to go.
"I love Utah! Utah is soft, warm and somehow modern. Not quite neutral but goes well with so many colors.
The name conjures the American Southwest for me, a place I haven't been but would love to visit. I think of Georgia O'Keefe out there, finding her peace, painting and living a simple life. Sunrises and sunsets. Clay. Old and new. I started collecting Utah to complement my Soapstone when Thistle had been discontinued. I wasn't expecting to, but I liked Utah better. Neither masculine nor feminine, it adds a certain brightness. I love it with Panna Cotta, Morel, and of course, Soapstone."
