pickled peaches

foie gras & pickled peaches

tim henley is a third generation farmer who brings us the best apples, peaches and occasionally berries that you just can’t beat… when he brought me the last of this season’s peaches, i made a big batch of pickled peaches so we could enjoy the taste of summer for just a little while longer. this dish is a result of that: foie gras, pickled peaches, peach preserves, corn bread pudding, balsamic vinegar, and roast chicken jus. the foods grown for us by great people like tim is what makes my job that much more fun…

always looking for something unique and interesting to share… Aimee Gajus, our local wild mushroom expert, was willing to share some pics of a recent patch of chanterelles she stumbled across. i can’t tell you where, but at least you get a look-see! Aimee brings them to us by the shopping bag full much to the enjoyment of our guests.
