vHUFFS continued from page 17 •stuffed shells (scallops, clams and crab) with lime and paprika; • mussels with red curry and coconut; • carrot and orange salad with sage. While Americans would typically eat the salad first, the tapas can be enjoyed in any order. “It’s all very quick, all very fresh, all very springy,” Steve said. “You can enjoy a seven-course meal of tapas without feeling like you just put away a huge ridiculous meal.” For those who are counting, the list only included six courses. What’s the seventh one? Tracy unveiled the last course: an angel food cake with each serving topped with slivers of fruit and drizzled with guava syrup. “Tonight, I used a store-bought angel food cake,” she said. “But for desserts, I have put everything from brownies to carrot cake in the smoker.” On this Sunday evening, we gathered in the Huffs’ combination kitchen and dining nook. The sun was starting to set on what had been a cool but beautiful, sunny day. The atmosphere both inside and outdoors provided a welcome contrast to the two “bomb cyclones” that had dumped inches of rain, up to two feet of snow and extensive flooding on much of the region. In addition, Steve had been spending extensive time on a legal case and Tracy had also stayed busy at work. The previous day had seen their two children juggling an ACT college entrance exam, two performances of the Yankton High School play and other activities. But now, quiet reigned throughout the house. The focus was on food and friendship, of sharing good times and a great meal. “We’re going to enjoy a José Andrés inspired menu,” Steve said, offering a tribute to the SpanishAmerican chef and restauranteur. Andres’ biography reads like the ultimate Renaissance man. He has not only emerged as a culinary king. As a naturalized citizen originally from Spain, he has become known for his influential role in areas such as immigration reform and humanitarian causes. “Andrés is the father of modern tapas in the United States, but he’s also the man who went to Puerto Rico (following Hurricane Maria) and fed hundreds of thousands of people,” Steve said. In 2010, Andrés formed World Central Kitchen, a non-profit that provides smart solutions to end hunger and poverty. He uses the power of food to empower communities and strengthen economies. Notably, his team served over 3.6 million meals to the people of Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria. vHUFFS continued on page 19 Building or Remodeling...
