Wow, We Love the Heat! (Lunch Menu: Week of April 15, 2014)

Some of us in the kitchen got the sunburns this weekend!
Some of us had birthday parties. When you see Melissa, wish her a happy birthday.
Some of us harvested the seasons’ first RHUBARB!

Sorry about the lack of pictures…hard to remember the camera whilst running out the door behind the kids getting on the school bus.

Lunch Menu Sketch: March 20-22, 2014

The quince tree has leafed out and the nettles are growing. The chef got a sunburn from jogging in the sunshine. The risotto on last week’s menu was the big seller. All of the new crew members are coming on board. Our new Pastry Chef Hamid is showing a distinctive style in our pastry case and at the markets. Van Vleet meat is teaching me about the difference between a mock tender and the teres major (the steak we sell as a Zip Steak). The river is down and morale is up. The pizza oven is so thrilled to be hot (700 degrees Farenheit) again.
