dinner #6

a huge thank you to the group who joined us last sunday. more great advice, input and most importantly honesty. we are appreciative of everyone who joined us!
these gorgeous vegetables were from the new smyrna farmers market on south atlanta road, right across the street from muss & turners.
here are the local vegetables including beets, carrots, turnips and radishes along with ryan's homemade bacon and creamy basil dressing.
tybee island shrimp ceviche.
the pork belly was fried crispy, then tossed with snow peas, ginger, schezwan peppercorns and finished with shrimp oil made from the tybee island shrimp shells.
slow braised beef shank from wess and charlotte at riverview farms. while ryan enjoys rich and hearty food, he tends to tire of the heavy flavor by the end of a dish so he added a vidalia onion and dill relish to cut through the rich beef sauce. a touch of acid always helps balance out a dish like this.
homemade coconut ice cream with homemade grapefruit syrup, fresh mango and mint leaves.thank you to jen, ben, vanessa, kerry, gina, carolyn, danette and shane!
