Secret supper # 1

Last night we held the first of a series of farm to fork dinners. We had about 20 guests and featured our farm raised Mangalitsa pork. It was truly a delightful evening and everyone had a great time and he food was delicious. heres the menu.

Appetizer: Crispy Mangalitsa bacon wrapped water chestnuts.

Starter: Maple Rock Farm winter foraged mixed greens served with hand crafted multi grain rolls.

Main Course: Roasted leg of Mangalitsa (fresh ham) served with garden fresh broccoli, braised cabbage, grits and red eye gravy.

For dessert we had kabocha sweet squash cheesecake with a bourbon sour cream topping.

I really had a fun time doing this and am happy that a long standing ambition has become a reality. My goal is to provide great food created from what we and our friends grow in a unique setting to create a food memory that will last a lifetime. We'll be doing more dinners soon. You can e mail us if you would like to be on the list.

Keep well,

Farmer John
