We just returned from cooking at a beautiful country lake all this week, where much of the food was done outside, over wood coals, and the harvest moon was a pretty big deal. We hope you’ll enjoy this week’s menu, inspired by campfires and living well. It’s suitable for a dinner party or a few days of good eating, it’s up to you!
As usual, we’ll offer this menu for pickup on Thursday (September 18) between 5:00 and 7:30 P.M. in Berkeley and San Francisco; you can order one on Square Market until Tuesday at 2:00 pm. You can get the vegetarian version, with the stuffed smoked peppers; the omnivore version, with the smoked pork loin; or the all-in version, with both.
All in: $180
It’s like this:
Smoked pork loin, 1 ½ to 2 pounds
Smoked over apple wood and ready for your sandwich or special dinner.
Smoked stuffed peppers, four
Sweet peppers stuffed with summer vegetables and breadcrumbs (available without breadcrumbs, too—just ask!)
Roasted apples and celery root, 24 oz jar
Fall is coming! Apples are here for real, and we are loving these Ida Reds from Devoto Orchards in Sebastopol.
Cucumber, radish and carrot salad with yogurt and dill, pint jar
A childhood favorite of some of us, cool and crunchy.
Quinoa mac and cheese, quart jar
Have we told you about Edison Grainery? Listen to their mission statement: “We formed Edison Grainery to remove the stigma that only the elite are eligible to eat organics.” We love them, and they make a very delicious quinoa macaroni. We’re excited to bring it to you this week.
Pickled mustard seeds, 4 oz jar
Recently, we noticed that we’ve become dependent on pickled mustard seeds. We think you might like them too, for: vinaigrette, sandwiches, adding to stews, slaws, creamy dressings, and other pickles.
Chicken or aromatic vegetable stock, 24 oz jar
Pretty soon, you might want some soup.
Arrowhead cabbage, one or two
Yes, we are giving these to you because they are so cute. And also because you might want to make some slaw this week.
Brown butter peach bars, four
For dessert with whipped cream, or as fuel on a hike.
Extras this week include our fiery and delicious hot sauces, and Morell’s Kid Bread, for sandwiches.
Thanks for supporting Potliquor!
All our best,
