To Eat: Amber Cup puree and roasted Carnival Squash topped with toasted Vadouvan Curry-Wild Nantucket Filberts

To Drink: Saison Farm House, Chardonnay, Oolong Tea

THE GOODS

Squash - We wanted to have an opportunity to try two different squashes to discover the difference (if any) in flavor and texture. The two we chose were the Ambercup and the Carnival, both from Bartlett's.

Vadouvan Curry Spice - A French-style curry blend from Ambrosia, set apart from other curry blends in that it features caramelized shallots, giving it slightly sweet/savory complexity.

Filberts - harvested by hand by Dylan from Polpis Road. Keep an eye out for the beauties and appreciate every bite as they are slow to husk.

Rose Sea Salt - A custom Sea Salt blend from Ambrosia using Wild Roses to add flavor and color.

Beer and Wine - The Saison Farm House is a Cisco Brewery reserve beer - quite strong and not too sour. The Chardonnay is a French-Style (so a little less buttery, more clear texture) using California grapes.
