Sometimes at the last moment, we get inspired by small things. Sometimes it takes a glass of wine or 4 to get a breakthrough.

I love to open with a soup. My brother came up with the idea to use a Bodum espresso cup to serve it in. Then at the last moment, Ben thought that a freshly ground coriander seed would make a great garnish. So we chatted for a few, ran the seed through the grinder, toasted them in a pan, and tested one serving.

We both loved the combo, totally his idea. Then we made and served 11 more. The small side note here is that while you may get inspired, the inspiration has to evolve into consistency.
