Cavallo Point’s Michelin-star restaurant, Murray Circle, under the direction of Executive Chef Joseph Humphrey, is one of Northern California’s top culinary destinations. Known for delectable Bay Area cuisine, the freshest local ingredients and stunning Golden Gate Bridge views, a meal here is inspired.
journeyPod suggests you try the Chef’s Tasting Menu for a truly incredible experience. Our favorites included the halibut tartare with a dusting of foie gras, the sun choke bisque with chickery and granita, and the black cod with peanuts, apples, and leeks.
Chef Joseph sat down with journeyPod for a one-on-one interview. Find out what this amazing Chef had to say:
What three ingredients do you love cooking with?
Olive oil, sea salt, lemons.
What’s the most unique food you’ve tasted?
Is there anything you don’t eat, Chef?
I don’t like mushrooms. I cook with them—a lot actually—but I don’t eat them.
It’s your Last Supper. What’s on the menu? Who’s cooking?
Cheese grits, fried eggs, smoked pork sausage….all cooked by my Mom.
What’s in your fridge at home?
Rotten food! I’m never home. When I am, I don’t cook!
What’s a trend you see in cooking?
Wild foraging. Wild berries, chick weeds, wild greens, wild fennel. It’s not possible to do that here on property because we’re on National Park land. But a lot of chefs are doing it elsewhere.
Any special dinners coming up?
Well, we have our special Thanksgivng Day dinner….all day on Thanksgiving. And on the menu we’ll have young turkeys that were raised just for Murray Circle!
