VT Tomato and Chevre Crostini

Jane Pomykala has hot house tomatoes ready for us to start serving this weekend!  Pictured above is a simple, but delicious, tray of herb toasted crostini spread with a mixture of minced fresh and our house cured tomatoes garnished with tangy Vt Goat Cheese.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]

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.
