The Farmstand crew has been dusting, sweeping, rearranging, building, staining, thinking and straining to get the patio ready for dining and the produce ready for perusing. The winter has gone by quickly, we’ve had more catering than usual, and it feels as if we have just cought our breath from last years’ dining season. We have a few new faces this year and a few old faces in new spots…..
In the kitchen, Sage, one of our young and ambitious cooks, will take over as this year’s egg flipper. This will leave Shea more time to make her perfect pasta. Chad will once again be our bread master. Hamid will satisfy our sweet tooth. Ricky will own the soups and sauces and and and. Fabio and Aaron will hold down the evening service. JC will once again walk around and coerce everyone into trying something new. As we speak, I am roasting pork belly and parsnips.
Out in the Farmstand, we welcome back Althea, Charlotte, MoMo, Allison, Rachel, Karli, Miranda, and Jonah. Ali will be serving on Saturdays, and Clayton will be manning the front counter.
And speaking of new, here is potentially our first lunch menu! I will add pictures as the prep progresses.
