From the Farmer

Week 15 – 8/26/2015
At the Farm Stand this Week: Willowsford Kitchen
Using the harvest at Willowsford Farm as inspiration, Willowsford Kitchen creates a variety of tasty prepared foods that are sold weekly at the Farm Stand. Seasonal sandwiches and salads, cobblers and other fruit desserts, holiday sides, sauces and jams are just some of the staples. Willowsford Culinary Director, Chef Bonnie Moore, and the Kitchen Team work out of the Sycamore House Kitchen cooking with the freshest farm vegetables, fruit, herbs, eggs and chicken. Willowsford-grown and Willowsford-made.
 
What’s on the Sample Menu?
  • Romesco – sauce for pasta, topping for bruschetta, dip for vegetables, brushed on grilled meats, chicken and fish, mixed with soft cheese as a filling.
  • Pesto – add to vinaigrette, sauce for pasta, topping for bruschetta, dip for vegetables, brushed on grilled meats, chicken and fish, mixed with soft cheese as a filling.
  • Tomato Sauce – it’s back! Serve it over your favorite pasta, on homemade pizza and so much more!
  • Eggplant Rollatini (our first heat-and-serve) – in a rush? This delicious meal is ready to serve and will bring the whole family to the table.
