On Tuesday we celebrated the summer season by highlighting local corn on a tasting menu at Blue Hill. We all felt the event was a huge success. Our customers participated in large numbers and we sold a record number of tasting menus.
The celebration of corn menu was as follows:
EGGPLANT FLAN WITH CORN AND PICKLED CUCUMBER RELISH
CHILLED AND DAIRYLESS CORN SOUP
Maine crab salad and snap peas
light corn chowder with mussels, clams and cherry tomatoes
SLOW ROASTED APPLE-FED PORK SHOULDER
corn cakes and wild watercress
apple cider-pork jus
blueberry compote and champagne sabayon
"STRAWBERRIES AND CREAM"
lemon cake, strawberry marmalade and balsamic
We would like to continue tasting menus that will highlight other products as we reach the end of summer and fall seasons.
Another successful event at Blue Hill has been the on-going Guest Chef Series. Recently, Gailan Zamarra, formerly of Bouley Bakery, presented a tasting menu of his at Blue Hill. The exciting exchange of ideas between chefs, both in the kitchen and present that evening as customers has only been succeeded by the exchange at eGullet.com!
