Back to the roots… all from the backyard potager. Horseradish, sunchokes, and dragon carrots.
Revelry and photobombing in the kitchen …a guest and my talented sous chef for the evening, Officer VK carving up the brisket. He also whipped up the horseradish cream sauce, vinaigrette for the salad, his house-cured canadian bacon and holiday sausages as apps, and brought a hot-off-the-presses bottle of his mustard bbq sauce. Thanks papa! Can’t wait for your food network debut… we’ll cheer you on, but only if we can come watch on your couch. Or I suppose it will be online eventually? Our tv only plays dvds. Or vhs…
Lady VK was equally indispensable bringing her fresh goat chevre, pesto, jams, crackers, and mixing up some mean Manhattans. We * heart* you guys so much! Seriously. Thanks for the help, and thanks to all who came to celebrate with us! See you next time…
