The Farmstand is off to a warm and wonderful start with our Valentine’s celebration in full swing. We had a packed house on Thursday and Friday and again today. We have been working hard all week. Here is the menu with pictures.
Next course was a parsley and parsnip root soup with pickled apple and crispy duck confit. We forgot to snap a picture!
What great time we had. Thanks to all those who came to eat, and to the crew who picked especially for us in the winter fields. LUNCHES START UP FEBRUARY 28th! We will see you there.
One of the best experiences of the past year was developing technique and recipe for our country levain. Working with sourdough is an exercise in patience and love. The sourdough culture that gives this bread its character, its profile, and its lasting power is fed every day. In return it helps us to make bread. The culture is years old, and this loaf was started 48+ hours ago. Any shortcuts taken subtract from what this loaf can be. We bake our bread in a wood-fired oven. Another exercise in patience and love. An oven is a fickle thing and must be watched carefully if one wants the best results. But what results! The oven spring can’t be matched.
