Leave the gluten, take the squash.
Posted on March, 19 2015
Spring Training has us seeing orange... orange-hued veggies that is!
This month our kitchen is adorned with beautiful late winter butternut squash — and that’s where we found inspiration for two of our newest dishes: a hearty and healthy Braised Lamb with Butternut Squash and Olives
, and a beautiful composed salad of Organic Butternut Squash, Hazelnuts, Prosciutto and Arugula
. Rich in Vitamins A and C, butternut squash is an ideal food for warding off colds and flu.
We’re also introducing two new soups – a savory, warming Acorn Squash and Lentil Soup
garnished with crisp bacon, and our Curried Pumpkin and Coconut Milk Soup
. Pair either one with Red Quinoa and Basmati Pilaf with Mushrooms and Scallions
for a satisfying spring meal!
Calling all gluten-free dessert lovers.
Just because you avoid gluten, that’s no reason to deprive yourself of dessert. Starting in mid-May, we’re delighted to offer a bright and tangy Bing Cherry Pie that’s totally gluten-free.
You’ll taste the rainbow in these seasonal veggies!
You already know that Jessie et Laurent has a deep commitment to sourcing the freshest seasonal, local ingredients. So, when we went looking for a new organic produce vendor, we didn’t have to look any further than Veritable Vegetable
Sourced from sustainable family farms across California, Veritable Vegetable is our newest “kitchen partner”, working alongside us to ensure each of your dishes is deeply flavorful and packed with nutrition. Look for Veritable Vegetable’s kale, rainbow chard, butternut squash, celery root, green beans, asparagus and tomatoes – just to name a few – on menus soon.
Sunday brunch just got easier.
Just the mention of Easter or Mother’s Day gets our taste buds working, thinking about piping hot mugs of coffee and tea, fresh fruit, and of course scrumptious brunches. That’s why we’ve added delicious, delicate quiches to the menus
of March 30th and May 4th.
On Easter morning, serve wedges of Spinach and Applewood Bacon Quiche
with creamy Scalloped Potatoes
, and finish with Salted Caramel and Chocolate Baby Bundt Cakes
. We promise, that big bunny has never hidden anything so delicious in your yard!
For Mother’s Day, Laurent will be making small batches of his own mother’s favorite, Quiche Lorraine
. This classic French “custard” includes bacon and Gruyere, so our Potato Spinach Gratin
makes the perfect side dish (See Mom, we’re eating our veggies!
). Just add our Apricot Crumble Bars
and you’ve got the fruit covered too…
The perfect gift: Mother’s Day
Instead of something traditional, give Mom the gift of delicious, lovingly prepared meals that she simply reheats and serves. Choose a gift certificate so she can select dishes based on her food preferences, or you can pre-select meals and arrange for their delivery. The real gift is the gift of time… time out of the kitchen to spend with family and friends. Just visit our Gifts page
to make your selection.
When purple turns green...
Last month, Jessie completed yet another belt test in her Tae Kwon Do practice. She’s pictured here, in her purple belt, demonstrating the skills and mental fortitude which ultimately earned her a green belt that day. We’re so proud of her!
