Oh my gosh, what a fabulous meal. And, even better, fabulous company!
Dinner last night at The Kitchen Cafe in Boulder was, to say the least, exquisite. The Kitchen is a little community bistro, famous for its menu which changes daily and is created from organic ingredients. The meal was served in four courses, and I can’t remember the last time I ate that much. Here’s a rundown of some of the highlights:
Hummus, Spiced Nuts, a Ricotta spread with roasted olives, mixed kalamata olives, a meat and cheese plate with pancetta, homemade salami and mixed cheeses and grilled bread.
Cure Farm Spicy Green Salad – radish, hakuri turnips, lemon & pecorino, Warm Asparagus Flan – with truffle hazelnut vinaigrette & sprouts, Bollito Misto – long farm pork belly, brisket, house sausage & salsa verde, House Made Gnocchi – duck, english peas, chèvre & dill
Grilled Line Caught Hamachi – roasted spring vegetables & fennel chili salsa, Roasted Pork Loin with a mustard and fig sauce with polenta, Au Gratin potatoes and sauted greens
Angel Food Cake, Pot au Chocolat and Sticky Toffee Pudding
Assorted wines, coffees and El Dorado Spring water
It was a great meal, served family style, and a lovely time was had by all. Thanks to all of my colleagues for a lovely experience in Boulder!
