Lunch Menu: March 13-15, 2014

We had a wonderful opening last Thursday. Thank you to all who paid such close attention to when we would open!

I am jazzed over this new menu idea. It gets the creative juices flowing. Spring wild things are pushing the menu with nettles and wood sorrel appearing around the woods and the farm.

P.S. The brasato is really a pork sauerbraten that I learned in Munich. I am serving it with spaetzle, a German, Austrian and northern Italian egg dumpling. The idea of serving a kasespaetzle is very exciting for those who have eaten it as a kid.
