Happy New Year!
I hope everyone had a great holiday and a great 2007.
We’re looking forward to 2008 here at Tilth. A couple of fun new things we have going on is the homage to local producer dinners every Monday night. We feature a different local producer each week for this 4-course dinner for $45. You can have us pair wines with each course for you for $20. This is a fun night for us in the kitchen because we are cooking things that are not on the regular menu that we serve Tuesday through Saturday. We’re able to get our hands on products that may only have a limited supply, which works well for a menu crafted for one evening.
Adam Chumas, our dining room manager, has started making bitters in house and distilled ice blocks that are chizzled to order for cocktails. We also just released a batch of dapple dandy plum brandy (yes, that’s actually the variety of plum). The plums are from Tiny’s Organics. I have a hot chocolate on the January dessert menu that is made with Theo’s Ivory Coast chocolate, Fresh Breeze milk (from Linden, WA), and cardamom, served with homemade vanilla-scented marshmallows. You have the option of drinking this incredible hot chocolate with Woodford Reserve bourbon (which I highly recommend).
Those of you who are watching calories and hope to get more exercise in 2008 can keep your eyes peeled for a nutrition page on the blog that I’ll be posting sometime in the near future. I have recently been training for a climbing trip and put myself on a nutrition and exercise plan to help out with climbing performance, reduce injury potential, and feel strong and healthy overall. In my calorie, protein, carb and fat counting, it has become apparent that eating organically may be healthy in a lot of ways, but it is still quite easy to still eat an imbalanced diet! Stay tuned….
I wish everyone a happy and peaceful 2008!
