Lamb Merguez and Grits
This is Chef Rolands' updated version of a dish I did a few years ago. It blends my simple cooking food roots with some of the flavors I’ve come to love from Morocco and Southern France. House made Lamb Merguez, aromatic with cumin, cinnamon and harissa is skewered, grilled and paired with buttery Weisenberger grits from Kentucky. We add a biscuit just because you need something to sop up all this goodness.
… but not just any French toast. We start with our house made brioche soaked in a vanilla bean infused custard, crispy on the outside custardy on the inside. Topped with vanilla pastry cream whipped with mascarpone, banana slices and a drizzle of bittersweet chocolate sauce.
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.
Our omelettes are made with organic eggs locally raised by Dale Filbrun in West Alexandria.They are cooked and flipped the traditional way in French iron pans. Filled with savory ratatouille, the classic stew of Provence and a grating of Parmesan and a drizzle of pistou, the French herb sauce similar to pesto.
