Another Great Trade
At last Saturday's Rittenhouse Farmers Market my next door vendor, to the north, was Otolith Sustainable Seafood. How fortunate was I to be situated between Linden Dale and Otolith! Both vendors traded me items that were fantastic on our table.
Linden Dale is back here.
This slab of salmon was a jewel. It had been handled/frozen very carefully. Slacked out it felt and smelled like a section of prime salmon filet. We simply salted, peppered and seared it. We plated it with chanterelles (Iovine) and fingerlings & quail eggs (FairFood Stand). This dish was eaten in blissful silence.
We also had a plate of fried chicken with grits and romanesco. This was the best spatchcock yet! Lil lady spatch'd a WholeFoods (basic) chicken. The romanesco came from Tom Colton.
