Did you know it’s Spring?

Nope, we didn’t either.

It’s sweater and big glasses of red (Brunello, if I had my druthers) weather and we’re supposed to be indoors cuddling and cooking.

So we’re doing exactly that- just in Connecticut. Yep, we’re  road trippin’ this weekend to the Litchfield Hills of Western Connecticut to cook at The Silo, saying good-bye to the last bits of winter and welcoming the flavors of Spring. Jamie can’t make it asparagus season soon enough so he slipped them into the menu with our second plate, Tagliatelle Pasta w Asparagus Cream.

Greeting: Classic Gougeres & Champagne

First Course: Filet Mignon Crostini w Bleu d’Auvergne, Arugula  

Second Course: Tagliatelle w Asparagus Cream  Third Course  Potato-Crusted Market Fish w Spring Vegetable Ragout  

Fourth Course: Chocolate Pot de Crème, Marinated Berries and Cinnamon-Laced Cookies

The chef coats are packed (so is Parker’s Lion King memorabilia) and I can’t wait for my Baby Boom moment
