Morning Walk in Glen Helen
Ahh, there’s nothing like a morning walk in the Glen, especially on a beautifully lazy Sunday morning. This dish was inspired by one such morning that produced a Leo-sized appetite. Creamy Weisenberger white grits, my latest Kentucky discovery, are enriched with fresh summer corn and topped with two poached eggs, sautéed domestic shrimp and a drizzle of piquant salsa verde...then, time for a nap.
Summer Croque Monsieur Sandwich
This famous open face sandwich is made with a thick slice of sourdough bread, béchamel, Comté, thyme and black pepper. Topped with Nueske’s smoked ham, roasted zucchini and tomato, or leave out the ham for a delightful vegetarian sandwich. A little bit of France right here in Ohio. Served with cornichons and herbed fries.
Field of Sunflowers
Don’t you love the field of sunflowers on 68 just north of town? Driving by always makes me think of Van Gogh, which led me to try these creamy, lavender-colored beans from heirloom bean and legume producer, Zursun. Stewed slowly with white wine, garlic, dark leafy cooking greens and the famous French herb mixture known as herbes de Provence, the rustic beans are served with hot rice, a dollop of whipped goat cheese and a spoonful of our house-made tapenade.
