We are old pros at this cooking demo, it’s almost becoming routine. We prepped all week, filling tiny sampler bottles, checking stock and polishing the Fustis. Chef Joe had planned a menu befitting the holiday – Cinco de Mayo. His selections included fruit quesadillas made with Alfoos Mango white balsamic, fish tacos cooked in Cilantro & Roasted Onion olive oil and Jalapeño white balsamic, pulled pork burritos cooked in Chipotle olive oil and finished with Blueberry dark balsamic, and bowl full of Mango balsamic salsa. The recipes are available here.
The morning was sunny for a change, though not terribly warm. Peterborough was hosting “Greenerborough Day” which brought the crowds walking through town right to our doors. Suddenly the little store was buzzing; family, old friends, new faces. Joe’s food was sparking new friendships and the bottles were flying off the shelves.
Now to start planning for “Dads and Grads” in June, I’m thinking a bar-b-que if the weather cooperates!
