Views Around the Farm Stand + Lunch Menu for May 22-25

bacon/blue cheese/zuke/tomato/mozzarella pizza

The weather is a little gloomier this week, but the farm is definitely in full swing now. The farm stand is stocked with strawberries, snap peas, cucumbers, fresh carrots, and first of the season basil. We’ve also turned on the heaters to warm up the deck dining room, and the pizza oven always radiates warmth. We’d love to welcome you in to take the chill off with fresh coffee and a hot meal.

A note about these flourless almond macarons with chocolate ganache: they may not look like much, but they are delicious. The cookies are made of a mix of almonds, powered sugar, egg whites, and sometimes almond extract, and the ganache is surprisingly rich. They’re not big cookies, but they are quite filling. These treats are gluten-free, but even gluten lovers will not be disappointed.

Often times, macarons are generously dyed with a rainbow of food coloring to enhance their appeal, but Ana Patty (GTF pastry chef) has made the decision to keep things natural.
