Silverlake Wine Tasting June

Pardon my Belated Posting of our June Silverlake Wine Tasting, it was a good one!!!

The wine BTW was spectacular, all from B de E, my favorite was the Grenacha. Do yourself a favor and go to SLW to get some!

Check out this Salad Matt did for the first course: That truffle looking thing over on the right was a Black Radish which is even more punchy than a typical radish. And those two red and white striped circles on the left, those are called Candy Cane Beets. They are raw here to preserve their pretty pattern and their taste in that form is more mild than a raw red beet. Also featured in this Farmer's Market salad is Cilantro Blossoms, Arugula Flowers, Sweet Corn (the Wednesday Market, namely McGrath Farms, was Brilliant on this particular week!), as well as house made Ricotta and a Yellow Beet Puree that was such an unusual addition that everyone (myself, Wilder and Randy anyway) looked at Matt as if he'd lost it. Then of course we tasted it mixed with all the vegetable offerings and wished there was enough for a third helping.

Second Course

The Pasta Course! But Of Course!!!!

Molten Mac-n-Cheese Family Style Lasagna
