Mother’s Day Brunch
Show Mom some love this weekend with a fresh and easy brunch highlighted by new spring produce like green garlic, cherry tomatoes, baby Shiitake mushrooms, pea tendrils and chive blossoms. Serve up these seasonal favorites alongside a housemade spring vegetable gratin, Gruyère cheese bread toast and warm rhubarb galette tart topped with our signature almond-cherry topping while Mom sits back and relaxes with a glass of French Crémant sparkling wine. Enjoy!
Here’s what you’ll find in your box this week:
Spring Vegetable Gratin
Crafted in our farmhouse kitchen, this beautiful dish marries beautiful leeks, greens, spring onions and herbs with a mix of fresh ricotta and Grana-style cheeses. Rustic yet refined, it is a wonderful addition to your Mother’s Day brunch. To serve, just bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes, or until the top of the gratin is golden brown and bubbly.
Gruyère Cheese Bread
Made in nearby Snohomish by our favorite bakery, this freshly-baked loaf balances sweet, nutty Gruyère cheese with a light, crisp crust. Absolutely delicious toasted or re-warmed in the oven—just sprinkle with a few drops of water and bake at 350° for about 15 minutes.
Domaine J. Laurens Cremant de Limoux Brut
Crisp and light touting flavors of lemon-lime and cardamom-like spice, this sparkling Cremant de Limoux Brut from southern France is perfect for a celebration, pairing well with creamy cheeses, desserts and lighter main dishes such as our vegetable gratin.
Westward Blue Cheese
Similar to a gorgonzola, this creamy soft cheese boasts a gorgeous marbled center and flavorful bite, making it a wonderful complement to a fresh salad of spring greens.
Farm Fresh Eggs
Busy scratching through the straw mulch in their spacious outdoor run looking for tasty bugs and worms on nice days, our heritage breed laying hens are also thoroughly enjoying a bounty of sprouting seeds and spring popweed, in turn supplying us with fresh eggs in beautiful shades of blues, green and brown.
Crafted from all-purpose flour and organic butter, this housemade pastry dough adapted from a beloved Alice Waters recipe bakes up light and crisp, with a smooth buttery taste that pairs well with spring rhubarb—see recipes for details.
Cherry-Almond Galette Topping
Our signature galette topping is crafted from organic cane sugar, ground almonds, sweet butter and dried cherries.
