More Job Inspiration- Pallet to Palate
place at The Cliffs in a tent right by the ocean. Local farmers paired up with local chefs and wineries and prepared wonderful food for
us to taste. Jerry and Mauureen were kind enought to take all the Rutiz Farm stand workers to the tasting as a little perk. Mauren even made personalized wine glases for each of us. We (rutiz farms) were paired with Flatbread, one of my favorite restaurants. Clark brought the portable oven and they made fresh flatbread pizzas right on the spot. Two types: oyster pizza (they were also paired up with the oyster farm in MB) and veggie with fresh corn, cherry tomatoes, basil and peppers. I tried both and have to admit the oyster one was O.k. but the veggie was delish. They also served a wonderful ice cream sandwich that Brian Collins concocted: gingersnap cookies on the outside, blackberry ice cream on the inside-very good. They were gone in a flash. My other favorite things from the evening: a lamb dish by Maegan Loring, a pork loin slice topped with a fresh peach compote and a panzanella salad served in a cone. All in all a very fun and filling evening!
