'17 AUGUST DINNER SHOW featuring our FARMERS MARKET BUFFET
Everyday Chef Bob sources out the freshest most seasonal and best ingredients he can find. All year he works with a co-op of farms sourcing the Oregon farms from coast to the valley for organic ingredients. Bob & Lenore helped start our local Tuesday market here in town for local residents. So all summer the freshest and best looking produce, proteins, dairy, herbs, and edible flowers are abundantly available.
Our market dinners typically include Bob’s daily bread, some artisan creamy butter, and artisan cheese & cured meats. Many times we include fresh house-made pickled vegetables and always have plenty of fresh vegetables, proteins, grains and beans.
Our goal is to inspire guests to shop at their local FARMERS MARKETS and to incorporate what’s fresh & seasonal into their daily menus. We enjoy this opportunity to honor the circle that starts on the farms and closes in our kitchens and at our table with friends and family. After all, “No Farms No Food!”
*All menus come with Artisan standards such as Bob’s Daily Bread; house made sweet butter; local farmstead cheeses and local cured meats; Bob’s pickles. Menus are paired with white and red wines; beer and alternatives include bottled lager, IPA and/or porter; and vignette sodas or san Pellegrino. Decaf coffee and full bodied espresso are served with dessert.
*Because our buffets have many choices, people can get plenty to eat by choosing what they like. However, we still need to know allergy restrictions and any medical restrictions at the time of booking.
