Lunch Menu – Week of May 12, 2015

Writing the weekly menu at GTF is like swinging on a trapeze. By that I mean we go from one new idea/concept/ingredient that we are all fired up about to the next. Each one leads to the next. My friend, Claudia, gave me some Doug Fir syrup for my  birthday! Which appeared on the menu last week as a glaze on the duck. I liked it very much – sweet and salty and citrus and green. My next thought was combining it with a smokey flavor. So this week we are all fired up about smoking: we are smoking duck breast for our GTF salad and pork belly for our carbonara pasta dish. Next week? Who knows!
