one saturday and a belly full of food, part 2

On that same fated Saturday, July 26th, it wasn't enough to gorge myself on food at the Brooklyn Flea-- I had much more in store! My friends at one of the catering companies I work for, Fancy Girl Table, partnered with the farm that provides them a lot of their organic produce, Blooming Hill Farm, to put on this amazing feast of five-course, vegetarian, organic deliciousness. A couple of my friends and I skipped out of the city en route for the lower Hudson Valley for the evening to take part of the fun. I could say more, but here's the menu and a few photos instead.


Sips & Cocktails
• Lemon, Lime, and Blueberry Infused Spring Water
• Mint Iced Tea
• Anise Hyssop Watermelon Rum Mash
• Opal Basil Vodka Lemonade Gimlet
• Sangria and Local Beer Selections

Hors d'oeurves
• Roasted Root Vegetable and Goat Cheese Phyllo Turnovers with Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce
• Homemade Ricotta and Grilled Peach Crostini with Cardamom Earl Grey Syrup
• Fingerlings, Caramelized Cippolini Onions, Lavender, Thyme, and Sprout Creek Farm Cheese with Truffle Oil Grilled Pizzas
• Grilled Corn on the Cob with Lime, Red Pepper Flakes, and Cilantro
• Barbecued Portobello and Smoked Onion Creme on Corn Johnny Cakes

Dinner
• Farm Salad: Mesclun, Beets, Romano Beans, Nasturtium, Sprout Creek Farm Cheese, and Opal Basil Vinaigrette
• Chilled Forager's Chowder with Grilled Corn, Summer Squashes, Potato, and Lovage
• Vegetable Harvest Cakes with Corn Pudding, Balsamic Grilled Radicchio and Grilled Farm Vegetables
• Blueberry Cobbler and Anise Hyssop Ice Cream

Everything was absolutely incredible, though I'm still dreaming about that cobbler...

If you're in the area, you should visit Blooming Hill Farm for brunch on the weekends, or check out Fancy Girl's food at Clay Gym, T Salon, or hire them for your next event-- you will NOT be disappointed.
