Today’s bounty is epic. The first tomatoes! Juicy strawberries! Spring roots! Meyer lemons! Ripe stone fruit!
For tomorrow’s lunch in the garden I’ll have some sliced nectarines and apricots over creamy Burrata, with a chiffonade of fresh basil, a drizzle of Ratto’s Extra Virgin Olive Oil, a shake of Balsamic vinegar, salt n pepper. Voila. I’m also going to roast some Broccolini in the oven, served with shaved Meyer lemon zest and grated salted duck egg. Oh and a glass of Muscadet ;).
We are always excited for a taste of something special. How about a whole bunch of it at once?
Friday Dec. 19th features tastings with the charismatic Sean with his fine Southern manners tasting wonderful French wines and a pink Alsacian bubbly, Huber & Bleger. Yes it is perfect for this celebratory season.
We also have Gina whipping up yummy little appetizer bites with Nduja, a super yummy spreadable salami from Calabria, and that means plenty of personality with plenty of no-nonsense, in-your-face Calabrian red chili added. Viva Calabria!
We are also offering some olive oil & cheese samples. What’s not to love? Come at lunch time and indulge.
