As you can see, the strawberries are streaming in, and I am spinning more sorbet today for tomorrow’s menu. The three-course meal will feature Lima beans, clams, and pork sausage in a cold antipasti application.
We will see how it shakes down. A Chintimini Farm chicken breast, and you guessed it, strawberry sorbet. We will also have greens with strawberries and cukes, and greens with a strawberry vinaigrette. Duck leg, pork sugo, tomato water gratinata (my current infatuation) and a ravioli with corn milk.
Come by and see! And congratulations to the weekend crew for an outstanding Saturday under pressure. They did a fantastic job!
We are glutting now with awesome strawberries. I have taken a flat and turned it into sorbet that I will spin on Friday morning. If you come to lunch, ask your server for a taste, and I will send you a palate cleanser portion of straight line strawberry.
