VT Tomato and Chevre Crostini

Vegetable Imperial Rolls

Summer is in full swing with temperatures in the 90's!  It is this time of year that we think of light, fresh appetizers like our Imperial Rolls!  Pomykala's now has fresh basil; there is plenty of mint and cilantro in our garden and we can pick up the other ingredients in one of Burlington's Asian [...]

Edible Spring Flowers

 We always look forward to our annual chive bed  blossoming in beautiful lavender flowers that can be used for both final garnish as well as a wonderful chivey zing!   Bev will also tend and harvest edible flowers from several pansy, violet and nasturium plants we will use to add that special touch to platters and salads.
