Silverlake Wine Tasting July

Matt and I went to the Saturday Farmer's Market in Santa Monica with the intentions of getting something unusual, okay weird. What we found were Bushels of Raw Chickpeas which neither of us had ever seen the likes of. Matt scooped up all of them and we brought a bunch to our July Silverlake Wine Sunday Tasting where he had attendees shucking them for themselves. He assured Randy that he would indeed sweep the floor of shells that curious tasters would be tossing, but they politely, graciously kept them in neat piles on their plate. Much appreciated.

Matt served these chickpeas as a raw salad with radish and broccoli sprouts on top of exceptionally fabulous figs with fresh goats milk ricotta and saffron glaze. The textures were unbeatable. People were licking their plates, especially Silverlake's own JD Flip-Flip
