Cured is giving you the bird every Thursday. A roasted bird that is. Our first birds went out March 28th each, and each Thursday from here on out our chefs are going to cook up a dozen organic Petaluma chickens along with a big ol dish of duck fat roasted potatoes. We’re even going ahead and selecting a weekly bottle of white or red wine to pair perfectly with the roasted chicken and rounding the meal out with a bag of organic salad greens from Oxford Gardens with a house made seasonal vinaigrette. All you have to do is keep from eating your delicious dinner on the drive home. $15 for the chicken and potatoes. $40 with the paired wine and salad.
Saturday May 11: Tender Belly Bacon and Frank Tasting.1-4 pm. Tender Belly was started by two brothers, Shannon and Erik Duffy who simply love pork. In 2010, following a love for good, pure, clean food and making the simple things, extraordinary they ventured into the world of pig business and started Tender Belly. They focus on heritage breed Berkshire pigs, paying the utmost attention to the well-being of the animals. The animals live a stress-free life with plenty of open space to roam and exercise. This freedom promotes exquisite intramuscular marbling. Erik and Shannon also understand that the choice of diet influences the taste of our pork; which is why their pigs are fed an all-natural 100% vegetarian diet. The result: The most unreal bacon and “hot dogs” (they almost need a different name and category as they are just too good to be classified as a hot dog) you have ever tasted. Tender Belly will be with us from 1-4 on Saturday tasting their delicious pork goodies.
Saturday May 18th: Olive Oil with Steve Lewis: 1-4 pm: Have you ever felt overwhelmed staring at a wall of olive oils, wondering what the differences are between different countries, producers and olive varietals? You’re not alone. The world of olive oil is vast and can be intimidating, which is why we are excited to have Steve Lewis with us on Saturday. Several years back, Steve Lewis, a well-known Italian Wine Importer, began to expand his portfolio to include olive oil. During his travels through Spain and Italy, he continued to happen upon small, family run, boutique olive oil producers that were creating oils on par with fine wines. Steve will be with us from 1-4 on Saturday to answer any and every question you may have concerning olive oil, meanwhile tasting his delicious imports.
