Take a break from the holiday hustle and bustle this week by lingering over a warm and cozy brunch that stars smoky, locally-sourced bacon, fresh German stollen and cinnamon-raisin breads, farm-fresh eggs, and crisp Honeycrisp apple cider. This lovely lineup also includes such seasonal favorites as Brussels sprouts, D’Anjou pears, Lady apples and beautiful braising greens, as well as a trio of dreamy delights from our own creamery—herbed fromage blanc, compound butter and silky crème fraîche. Pour yourself a hot cup of coffee, break out the breakfast skillet, and enjoy!
