From Sunday’s Taste of the Nation at Tre Piani in Forrestal Village – Jim Weaver’s scallops never fail to please!’
Thanks to all the participants for a great event, on a gorgeous day!
More photos below, and in addition to these, we also enjoyed duck pastrami (or was that basturma he said, I later wondered…) from Triumph, breads and more from Terra Momo, bread and cheese and pigs foot terrine from Bobolink, Hudson Valley Foie Gras, Valley Shepherd buttered bread with sheep ricotta and honey, seafood and desserts from Mercer County Community College’s culinary arts program, whose students also staffed some of the other tables.
It takes a village to feed the world!
Griggstown Quail Farm red bourbon turkey with farm kale and cauliflower puree. Chef Matt Stystema was assisted by Tiffany Millen, owner of Simply Nutritious Meals – you may have read my article about her recently, she delivers healthful dinners Monday-Thursday in the greater Princeton area.
Blue Bottle Cafe’s goat cheese gnocchi with local mushrooms, asparagus, and leek cream…
WoodsEdge Wools Farm lama slider. Really. And delicious! Lama is a combination breed of Llama and Alpaca. They also had yak stew, also very good. I didn’t expect to like these so much, so that’s why you gotta try new things!
Hot and crispy from the fryer, an English Pea croquette from Bruce Lefebvre, now the proud owner of The Frog and the Peach.
Brothers Moon lovely chicken and dried fruit terrine, topped with pickled red onion and collard salad. Pickled onion, esp. red onion, is so big now, I love it.
From elements, Scott Anderson’s soy custard with black rice (thus the color), snap peas, radish and green garlic. Interesting!
Fighting Hunger With Taste!
