Thirty six gardening buffs from the west side of the Evergreen State wreaked havoc and destruction over the weekend of April 19th. We were lucky enough to feed them.
We rented Carnegie, the wife built some very agreeable tulip centerpieces, Sean from Water's Winery was our guest sommlier, and we tried to impress with the food.
Three apps: crostini, white bean puree, pork confit... endive, goat cheese mousse, cranberry apple relish... swedish pancakes, apple butter.
- asparagus salad, tarragon dressing, poached trout, potato pinwheel
- walla walla sweet onion soup, caramelized onion custard, thyme brown butter
- red wine braised short ribs, potato gratin, roasted asparagus, pearl onions, cauliflower
- patisserie gelato, shortbread, macerated strawberries, whipped cream
Wines to match: Stella Blanca semillon, Waters voigner, Waters syrah, Northstar syrah, Three Rivers Gwertziminer (or however the hell you spell it!).
We don't like to brag, but... pretty yummy.
