Yes, we’ve been MIA for a few months. But we’ve put our hiatus to good use. Check it out!
We planted a garden:
We went on a fabulous trip to Europe:
We made some really good food discoveries:
We also got mildly obsessed with mushroom hunting, and we went on a Christmas Eve hike where we found a whole bunch of stuff you can’t eat—plus one thing you can:
So now it’s 2013 and we’re re-energized to get back into the kitchen. We’ve got tons of new ideas and incredible ingredients and super fun kitchen toys that we can’t wait to play with. We’re ready to get back into the groove of our monthly dinners—we’ve missed sharing a table with all of you!
We’re now taking reservations for our first event of the year, which will be a 7-course mushroom-focused dinner on Saturday, January 26 (menu subject to minor changes):
shimeji mushrooms, ribeye, nori
golden chanterelles, dill, beet, radish, sorrel, flowers
black truffle and porcini chawanmushi
king trumpet mushrooms, hazelnut, smoked apple, raisin, Scotch
fried hen of the woods mushrooms, waffle, honey, hot sauce
black trumpet mushrooms, chicken confit, celeriac, Asian pear, brussels sprout, pistachio
candy cap creme brulee
We can make this dinner work for gluten-intolerant guests, but unfortunately we can’t accommodate vegetarians this time around. The meal will be $85, inclusive of wine/beer/cocktail pairings with each course. Please drop us a line ASAP if you would like to join us—we only have a few spots still available!
