You learn something new everyday. Tonight's Red Hen Market Menu features something called "noix de jamon," which Collin tells me means "the nut of the ham." Think best part of a piece of pork, perfectly cured.
I don't care what you call it, I call it delicious.
Here's how it's playing this evening in our $35 Market Menu.
1st course: a small plate of noix de jamon, brie, lavash bread
2nd course: butter leaf salad with strawberries (picked yesterday by our friend Rodney), fennel, radishes, turnips with vinaigrette
3rd course: rosemary & honey-roasted quail with grits, asparagus (also just picked), & walnuts
I know it's 5:30 pm & you might already have dinner plans. But hey, there's always tomorrow.
