Spring has brought good fortune and lots of work to us. We have been quite busy lately with Born and Raised, and it feels great to make our pleasure into a small business.
First there was a local show featuring our good pals Odd Bird. We made Macaroni and Cheese with sweet peppers, caramelized onions, and bacon, and Golden Beet and Citrus Salad with fresh greens and toasted pine nuts, and we got a great response (and sold out, which we were quite pleased with).
Next there was a wedding at the newly-restored DeTurk Round Barn, for which we prepared two types of ice cream: Malted Milk, which is the best ice cream we have ever tasted, and Coffee (using Ecco beans roasted just blocks from the wedding locale).
Next up is Shop Party at the Arlene Francis Theater. This is a really incredible event featuring local artists, craftspeople, and small businesses, and we are really looking forward to spending time with (and making good food for) everyone who will be there. Our menu for that day is a surprise, but it will be, as always, locally sourced, well-made, and delicious. We'll also have preserves on-hand (Gwen just made some fantastic Lemon Curd) and some other goods. We will be happy to see you there.
