Sue and I got to share a table with friends from my former working life, and around the room were familiar faces from seedling transactions at the Raleigh Farmers Market or our driveway. By the end of the evening, my "tomato friends" circle increased significantly...and if all went well, there will be more folks finding places to plant tomato vines next season. When you can combine a great hobby, passion, people, history and stories with great food, it makes for something really special.
I will let the menu speak for itself (see below). My brain hasn't finished processing the skillful way ingredients were combined to produce depth and deliciousness with every fork or spoonful. I've also included some other pics from the evening.
Thanks, Ashley - and Happy Birthday - and thanks to the entire staff, and my Quail Ridge friends.
