I make a frittata every Saturday morning with whatever leftovers are in the fridge. Good eggs make a good frittata. Serves 4 as a main or 8 as a starter. Try it with a crisp Sauvignon Blanc or White Bordeaux.

Ingredients

  • 5-8 sweet potatoes
  • 1 handful brown mushrooms (wiped clean with a towel)
  • 6oz Cypress Grove chevre
  • butter
  • Ratto's Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • fresh sage, rosemary & thyme (stems removed)
  • 10 Large organic eggs

Using a 10" cast iron or other ovenproof skillet, bring to heat on the stovetop until quite hot. Add butter &/or Olive oil, potatoes and mushrooms. Add eggs all at once and dab the Chevre all over the top.
Step 11
Place in the hot oven for about 20 minutes, or until cooked through & bubbled up.
Step 12
Carefully take pan out of the oven, and keep an oven mitt on the handle so you remember it is hot! Oh the burns I have gotten…. .
Step 13
Slide onto plate or just eat from the pan. Sliced in wedges is a nice way to serve it.

Taste some lovely French wines with Francois, accompanied by cheeses and salumi. He’ll be serving  Chateau Martinot – White Bordeaux 2012, Chateau Garrineau – Red Bordeaux 2010, Andrieux & Fils – Côtes du Rhône Villages 2011, Andrieux & Fils – Vacqueyras 2011, and Domaine Gibault – Touraine Sauvignon 2012.

Let Francois entertain your palate!

We are excited to serve Santa Rosa’s Zoe’s Meats, who produce fine quality charcuterie.

We love Zoe’s story, environmental commitment, and great product. They use no added nitrites or nitrates, no hormones or antibiotics, and source sustainably raised animals whenever possible. They use sustainable fuel sources for their delivery trucks, and donate 1% of their sales to a local public school of our choosing to create a school garden. Try their Roast Turkey, Smoked Turkey, Black Forest Ham, Honey Ham, Roast Beef or Pastrami. Next time you order a sandwich, it will come with Zoe’s quality and flavor.

Hooray for great products!

 

The next Oakland Stock is coming to Ratto’s!

Sunday, January 26th, 6pm. Finish your Restaurant Week experience with a visit to a PopUp dinner that funds artists’ projects!

Oakland Stock is part of the Sunday Soup network, supporting artists’ projects one bowl of soup at a time. Similar to a popup restaurant, but with a twist: diners pay a small dinner fee, feast on a gourmet meal, and listen to artists propose new projects that need funding. The diners vote on their favorite project to support and the winning artist takes the money to use for her/his work. The winner presents their project’s progress at the next meal,  usually about 6 weeks later.

Le Menu: White Bean, Sausage & Escarole Stew,  Creamy Pumpkin Soup (vegan), Fox and Lion Bread, and a hearty seasonal salad TBD

Chef + Hosts: Lexa Walsh & Elena Durante

Who’s Invited:  Soup lovers, artists and those interested in supporting them.

Artist Submissions Deadline- Sunday, January 19th, 11:59 pm
