FARM SPOTLIGHT: GROUNDWORK ORGANICSThis week we picked up some gorgeous Persian cucumbers from one of our favorite local farms, Groundwork Organics. Naomi has been getting produce from them for decades, and they were a staple at BEAST.This week’s haul is becoming a Chilled Cucumber and Creme Fraiche Soup with Hokkaido Scallop ceviche and smoked olive oil, garnished with flowers and herbs from Naomi’s home garden.Cold, refreshing – perfect for the summer weather! Available on our patio menu only! Summer produce is in full swing and we’re adding new dishes to the menu to celebrate. Have you tried this recent addition? Tomato and Saffron Cappelletti – our rich egg dough seasoned with tomato conserva and saffron, then stuffed with seasoned ricotta and parmesan. Toss it in a quick butter sauce, or use our vibrant Spring Greens, Nettle, and Pistachio Pistou.Shop all of our new & special itemsCopyright © 2020 Ripe Cooperative, All rights reserved.
