dinner 21

jenny and benny, ready for dinner!
georgia cheese tasting.
we started our guests off with a trio of sweet grass dairy cheeses. thomasville tomme, sweet grass green hilll, and asher blue cheese
originally the plan was to grill the peaches... but advertising a menu days before a dinner, the peaches ripened a little ahead of schedule. we bagged the grill and just sliced the peaches. here's the salad with baby arugula, local goat cheese, marcona almonds, housemade bacon, champagne vinaigrette, and burnt honey from glover family farms.
jens favorite course of the night.
berkshire pork pate, housemade mustard, pickled rock star farms baby carrots and watermelon radish salad
main course.
pan roasted leg and breast of cornish hen with georgia lady pea hummus, "greek salad" with tomato-chili oil

we forgot to take a picture of the dessert. we had some difficulty with our freezer and it caused us to change our original plan and reach out and support our new favorite ice cream shop, morellis! morellies is a frozen treat shop in east atlanta that serves the best ice cream and sorbet we have ever had. the housemade pralines were served with orange-rosemary and lemon sorbet instead of the georgia peach sorbet. perfect finish to the dinner. thanks for the rescue morellis!

thank you max, nelya, melanie, steve, jonathan, jennifer, kim, pam, leah and chuk for joining!
