It's been a whirlwind weekend here at the F.o.t.D. Headquarters! Three Salons happened--one was filmed by a four-person camera crew--and we've had chicken frying and compotes bubbling, bread rising and clams shucking, risotto waving and many trips to and from the markets. Everything went great and we made some absolutely lovely food, including:
  • Stinging Nettle Soup
  • Risotto alle Vongole e Asparagi
  • Cured Copper River Salmon
  • Huge Rooftop Salads
  • Lard-Basted Epi Bread
  • Ham Hock Collard Greens
  • Rhubarb and Cornmeal Crostadas
  • The First Strawberries of the Season
  • Buttery Hoe Cakes
  • Gut-Busting Mac and Cheese
As you can see, we've really run the gamut from light to heavy, and there's so much more to come. But now, I'm really ready to get a bit of a break from it all, from the noodle-rolling madness of Flour and Bones to the first few months of the Salon's life. Thus, I'm headed up to Wisconsin for a few days of camping, tree hugging and talking to streams and lakes. But never fear, the salon is in full effect upon my return with this week's Pizzaland Salon and Sunday's Brunch Salon! These are sold out, but we do have seats available later in the month for the Beer Food Salon on Saturday the 18th and the Seafood Salon on Wednesday the 22nd. As always, thanks to Kristen Jones for the lovely poster at the top of the page, thanks to all those who have joined us in the Salon, and I hope to meet more of you soon!
