Crum's Farm

Who is going to start the thread about the best dinner I have ever missed.  :sad:

radishes and butter, speck and prosciutto piccante, Goat's Beard Farm cheese, fervere bread

poached egg w/guanciale, smoked tomato and ??

Chard/garlic "pesto" w/garlic soup (pork base, some bread to thicken)

5-minute-old salad w/raw beet julienne, pickled red onion, creme fraiche

Porcine Plethora (someone help!)

Gratin of chard

Green beans extrordinaire (my name;-)

Roasted chioggia beets

Orbs of Joy (onions ala Fergus Henderson)

Potatos

Pear (not clafouti . . . please help my dessert-challenged self)

That should be enough to awaken your salivary glands. I'm sure the others will jump in and correct/enhance my lame, laic description.

But you were doing a very good thing and it will come back to you one day. :wub:

I've only got a second but I'll fill in some of the gaps...

the thirty-five minute egg had truffle vinaigrette on it too

the pork preparations were 1. Bacon-wrapped Berkshire striploin,

2. Sous vide belly, and 3. boudin blanc

another side dish was roasted patty-pan.

the dessert was a pear trifle

Wines were a muscadet and a Beaujolais, but I regret to say I can't be more specific.

The dinner was excellent, with a fun group of people, a beautiful setting, and perfect weather. Thanks so much to the Crum family!!

Thanks, Just H - the muscadet was from the Loire Valley :wub: , where I spent some of my senior year of H.S. (and developed a taste for the good life, from which I have NEVER recovered - and hope I never do).

And the red that was served was also wonderful and, as I understand it, added recently to the carte du vin at The Frog, where the lovely Krista found it "quaffable.'

Edited to delete repetitious redundancy.
