July 18 Garden Day Plans
Today, Chef Adam and I put together the lunch menu for The PORCH & Atelier Garden Day. He'll be shopping for local, fresh Minnesota fare, and plans to serve casual buffet-style in two settings (a sneak peek at the menu: the first setting will be the main course - e.g., savory scones, stuffed tomatoes; and the second a dessert table -fresh fruit tart). The third setting will hold our herb demo area : a local, fabulous gardener who has marvelous herb plantings, recipes and uses for herbs, and, of course: herb tasting.
The garden tour guide with driving routes is coming together - we'll visit three local, lush gardens, tended by generous homeowners (see photo of one of this year's gardens). I love special events at the shop, and am looking forward to this fun annual event!~ Pre-registration required; $19; it's not too late to sign up.
