Attention Size Queens!
December is roaring in with some cold weather, making us seek out warmth wherever we can! Our favorite farmer Morse from Windfall Farms has a bumper crop of Golden Turnips, so he reached out to a bunch of us to take them off his hands, each turnip was anywhere from 2 - 7 lbs- Woah! Big and flavor that needed some taming!
I came up with a Golden Turnip Soup with tumeric and melted sweet onions, finished with cream and then pureed. It's served with a dash of Japanese pepper spice, chopped cilantro, toasted sesame and some crispy crab and shrimp won tons. If this dish doesn't warm you up - then have another cocktail!
We are also featuring this weekend a Grilled Ribeye Steak Teriyaki, from grass fed Colorado beef, served with stir fry Chinese vegetables and Tempura Onion Rings.
This weekends Bread and Cheese has a French Triple Creme Savarin, very buttery with Walnut Fig Bread and that delicious Hudson Valley Duck Prosciutto Style - Yum!
For the sweet tooth we have a Black and BlueBerry Brulee with passion fruit curd and chocolate shortbreads. I think Calamity Chang will have some fun with this dish!
Have a great weekend and we hope to see you at Chow Bar!
