Elodie Farms surpassed our expectations - the farm was very friendly, clean to walk around, they provided a mini tour and a sampling of three fresh cheeses (montago, chevre, and tomme) before the meal, the atmosphere was perfect and cozy, ability to bring your own beer/wine, and the food was superb!! Watts Grocery chef Amy Tournquist was amazing and eloquent last night. We are definitely huge fans of hers - here's the run down of the courses as best I can recall - and just about everything is LOCAL!!
First course: citrus shrimp salad, with pea shoots and pickled artichoke
Second course: fresh red and yellow tomatoes with basil, creamy vinaigrette, and plenty of chevre
Third course: buttery, smooth rack of lamb, individual rosemary corn puddings, baby squash, green beans and tomatoes
Fourth course: sweet shortcakes with blueberries, blackberries, and homemade peach ice cream with a sprig of lavender
The goats were really friendly, I thought one of them was trying to eat my hand though!
