the hardest thing ...

... is simplicity. Shellfish all night, starting with the whelks and continuing onto varnish clams from British Columbia, which I far too seldom find at the market ...
... done with green onion, ginger, and a splash of white wine over high heat ...
... and finishing with scallops from Nova Scotia, done in the same way, allowing each to express its true nature. The hardest thing to do right is simplicity.

Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

- Antoine de Saint-Exupery, French writer (1900 - 1944)
