Root to Fruit Harvest Dinner!
Aug 19
 

Drawing from our own gardens and the bounty of nearby farms, we will be offering an imaginative seven course tasting menu that will be an inspired and playful journey through the summer harvest, an all-veg menu showcasing the local flavors from root to fruit in creative and fun preparations. Because Chef Jordan enjoys a challenge, each course will spotlight a different plant family - nightshades, legumes, alliums, brassicas, etc, riffing off traditional dishes, but re-visited in ways that we trust will surprise and delight.
