Jeff & Cheryl Buerhaus

The new issue of Maine Ahead includes an article about Jeff & Cheryl Buerhaus and their restaurant Walter’s.

Buerhaus has as much concern about the textures as the tastes of his menu. His Loch Duart Salmon (see recipe below), for instance, is wrapped in edible rice paper and gently grilled with a fresh cilantro leaf placed on top of it, leaving behind a lacy appliqué. The accompanying bamboo-scented rice and sesame spinach add a unique flavor and color effect. “The entire dish—the look, the colors, the textures, and, of course, the flavors—all play a role in making it a success,” Buerhaus says.
