What a beautiful Mother's Day weekend it was to enjoy the farmers' market! Chef Jed reports to us that there is fresh asparagus, beautiful rhubarb, juicy strawberries, and the first shoots of spring garlic and spring onions. Plus a plethora of fresh flowers.
Next week, start looking for berries of every kind. Also, potatoes: fingerlings, Russian banana potatoes, sweet and new potatoes. Keep an eye out for new baby carrots. And not far down the road, broccolini.
Among the fresh market offerings being highlighted on our menu today, we have a new ice cream flavor: Strawberry Rose. If there is an ice cream flavor you would like to taste, visit our FaceBook or Twitter pages, and let us know. We do take requests!
