We are only here for a week, but we have already baked, whisked, and toasted enough for a lifetime.
Birthday feast for Poppa:
- Spinach salad with strawberries, blackberries, mizithra cheese, pickled red onions, and slivered almonds.
- Steamed asparagus with tarragon mustard hollandaise.
- Home-made ravioli stuffed with butternut squash, chevre, and ham, served with the following sauce: shiitake, maitake, criminy, and hedgehog mushrooms, butter, white wine, creme fraiche, parsely, and parmesan.
- Flourless chocolate torte with candied bacon and pecans.
Also shown is a photo of some cinnamon buns that we made a day earlier.
