Spring & Summer: The Season for Scallops and Chardonnay

The scallop season has just begun, so now is a great time to get some of these delicious bites from the sea. Spring is also a perfect time to enjoy white wines, and these pan seared scallops include a delicious Chardonnay from Woodbridge Wines by Robert Mondavi. These California wines are characterized by zesty fruit flavours, and lovely smooth finishes; perfect compliments to food. The Chardonnay that I chose for this dish has an aroma of green apple and a floral undertone, with a rich oak finish, perfect for scallops.

About Scallops

Scallops are a favourite treat from the sea for us. They are succulent, sweet and meaty morsels that don’t need a lot of dressing up. These bivalve mollusks live in shallow ocean waters throughout the world. Unlike other mollusks, such as oysters, scallops don’t attach themselves to anything. Scallops are free swimmers, can you believe it?. They use their adductor muscle, which is the part that we eat, to move themselves though the water. The muscle is used to rapidly open and close the shell, which forces a jet of water past the shell hinge, propelling it forward.

What Designers Can Try From Martha Stewart?

Like every housewife, Martha Stewart, a long-time developer of experience, can teach a few things to UX practitioners to bring back users for more.

You can compare the experience of spending time with people living in their homes to experience a brand. When you enter the home of a truly wonderful host, you are faced with a number of carefully designed options designed to give you a positive experience. In other words: you are experiencing the ın brand ”of that household.

Pleasant tastes, ambience and lighting, welcoming cuddles and talking, the best hosts are planning every experience that their guests will experience, taking into account all their senses and emotional reactions. Like every brand, good hosts want their guests to come back for more.

Although some houses have played a role in persuading people to carefully consider their guests' multi-sensual needs while Martha Stewart, Candice Olson, and Jonathan Adler had such personalities, many homeowners have done this in multiple points of contact for generations. In many ways, we can say that homeowners are original experience designers.

Like every good host, brands also want consumers to enjoy the experience of their products. However, very often, they do not understand the spectrum of the multi-sensory needs of their customers and thus fall behind the expectations of the meeting.

Brands, Martha, Candice and Jonathan, by considering the three important principles, including the best daily hosts, brands can design meaningful, multi-sensory experiences and establish long-term relationships with customers.
