we got some of the tastiest berries ever this week, and featured them with almond shortcakes and strawberry ice cream… i missed the pic of the actual dessert though.

so it took months to finally get there, but thanks to jeremiah and mike, we finally have something to eat. meats from polyface and double h farms were used exclusively. we have a couple  other varieties to switch as this continues to progress. they are all delicious! served with pickled red onions, gherkins, whole grain mustard, and grilled homemade focaccia.

oregon porcinis

mr. joe daugherty and his wife came from oregon last fall to introduce area restaurants to his mushrooms. he is a forager and wholesaler of all varieties of northwest wild edibles. he brought us some great truffles last fall, and most recently the morels (last week), and porcinis (this week). its always great to forge these relationships with people so close to the products they sell. thanks joe, we love your mushrooms!
