If you’ve read my recent review of Stonehorse…

If you’ve read my recent review of Stonehorse Cafe, you’ll know that Tim Inman is still at the top of his game. Two recent dinners have shown that Michael Fusco, who recently joined Stonehorse’s team, has made Stonehorse even better. One Friday night I had ivory salmon — flesh as soft as cream and as white as snow — with a classic French sauce made with champagne and cream. The rich sauce had somehow caramelized — perhaps it was a sweet wine — and that made it even better. Luscious grilled shrimp studded the sauce. Later I told Mr. Fusco that the sauce seemed to be his style of cooking. Yes, he said, I invented it.

Last night I had a pork chop. It was glazed with chipotle, covered with macerated fresh corn with a few hot peppers thrown in, and served on a bed of pureed corn. Another Fusco invention. The flavor was amazing. I wanted to lick the plate.

Born in NYC, age 0, on my birthday. College in Oxford at age 16. Law School in New Haven, Conn. 6 years travel in Africa and Asia. Haven’t done much lately. Still, I’m the only Tulsa member of the little-known Omega Society. www.theomegasociety.com I speak enough Chinese to order food not on any English menu. Spanish French Italian too (not fluently but food-ently) My favorite restaurant is Jean-Georges in New York. But those NYC chefs would sell their soul to get the produce available from the farms around Inola. “A writer writes alone.
