Polenta Fest is coming May 24th

Finally, I have kept my word. We are planning an Italian style polenta fest for Thursday May 24th. The fest will start at 7pm and end about 10pm. We will serve the polenta on wooden planks Italian style. I first experienced this in 2003 at a friends house in Selci Sabina. It was a fantastic event.  This is the way Italians have eaten polenta for centuries. Stop by the restaurant to sign up. The price is $30 per person.


I have scheduled a bread making class for Tuesday evening May 15 from 7pm til 10pm. If you are interested stop by the restaurant to sign up. The price is $25 per person.


Tomato plants have finally adjusted to their new home and are growing. We have 9 heirloom varieties from Lilly. Should have tomatoes in about 6 weeks. Can’t wait.

There is a new urban farmer at the Farmer’s Market. Their farm is in San Ganriel and they offer some very unique produce. Check them out. Their booth is across from Nicole’s. They also sell plants and seeds. Their market reminds me of something from Italy. It’s very cool.

We have started to offer a savory scone on Saturdays. Last week it was a kalamata olive with fresh oregano topped with course sea salt. It turned out nice.

This past Saturday we baked 45 loaves of bread. Wow.


Here are a few photographs from the past week.

I am a bloody Irishman, but a real Italian Wannabe. I'll take Italy over Los Angeles and Dublin any day. Give me a plate of homemade pasta and an espresso with lots of crema and when I am through eating and I'll think I am in heavan. View all posts by Bill Disselhorst
