Columbia King Salmon, Duroc Pork Chop – Specials Oct 8-9
The wine dinner of the 20th will be awesome, don’t miss out! These are some of the best white wines in the world, and I will be creating traditional dishes from the region that literally take days to put together!
The specials this weekend are going to leave you speechless when you taste them. Some of the finest King Salmon I have ever seen, wild-caught from from the Columbia River by Native Americans. Put that together with some delicious wild Chanterelle mushrooms – awesome!
How about a locally-raised Duroc pork from the Good Farm in Oldsburg? I took the rib chops and brined them in Kansas apple cider, lightly smoked them, braised them at low temperature sous vide for 12 hours. We are grilling them to order to get a little char on the chops. I have been working on these for five days now! I name each of our pigs after an employee, this one was Griff, better check out how good he is!
I really wanted to thank Anne Brockhoff from the Kansas City Star for the wonderful article she did on Tonics that features 4 Olives. It was a very well-written story, and we appreciate the compliment! Please check it out. Kansas City Star – Tonic, 4 Olives
