A bit of a slow patch and breather before June events kick in. Winery unveiling on June 7th. Watermill wine dinner June 14th. Two weddings June 21st.
Don't worry, we will still be at the market.

Week 2 - Sold Out. 108 paninis. And the heat was unbearable.
Week 3 - ????.... Order early.
A special thanks to the courageous souls who went out on a limb and tried the porchetta panini.

This time we played host at Basel Cellars for the Whittie Alums. A happy 50 year reunion rather than 40. Almost the same menu, similar crowd but ten years older, and close to the same guest count.
Who would have thought repeating the same day could be so enjoyable.
A photo of porchetta from a Lastoskie cocktail party. Does our 1930's oven (which lacks a thermostat) look fun to cook with? The wife hates it, needless to say, I love it.

Nothing agrees more with the Graze Catering ethic than the Farmer's Market. Local food, farmers, and good friends. It was nice to see so many returning customers. Thank you all for your patronage and patience when we get thoroughly over-run with orders.
Paninis this week:
- Mesquite smoked turkey, bacon, provolone
- Close Farms asparagus, pancetta, egg omlet, parmesan, provolone
- Apple smoked pork loin, fresh apple, arugula, provolone
Next week we are coming out with a porchetta panini. I can't wait.

We are three for three. Unscientific as it may be, but three big wine weekends, three times wine tasting patrons have exclaimed "best food at any winery in town." Saviah, Reininger, and now Longshadows. I can give you the long winded version with evidence and personal comments, but I think this picture says it all, guests moments after the platter from above was placed on the table.
A picture of myself and Gilles the winemaker. Becca and I, Gilles and his wife Marie (Forgeron's winemaker), met randomly at Pioneer Park and the Patisserie two years prior. Nice to be reunited in a Walla Walla kind of way.
