On February 1st the Cascade Culinary Institute and Central Oregon Locavore hosted their first sold-out "Meet Your Farmer" dinner. We provided pork, collard greens, cabbages, lettuce mix, micro green, beets, and flour.
We want to give a great big thank you to Chef Thor Erickson for his fine art with our ingredients.
He started with charcuterie assortment, pickled beet salad with winter greens, goat cheese, hazelnuts and sherry vinaigrette and winter slaw.
Family style entrees were porcetta with roasted potatoes, handmade pasta ala amatriciana with pancetta, garlic, tomoatoes, and aged cheese. Then Cotechino with lentils and collard greens and braised winter vegetables.
And a wild dessert of Bacon maple ice cream sandwiches
