We have many things to tell you this week! There’s a menu for pickup next Thursday the 20th, Shepherd & Hunter; a special Thanksgiving crate for pre-order, available for pickup Tuesday the 25th; and the kitchens in our building are having an open house tomorrow—come say hello!
Shepherd & Hunter: It’s getting darker (and rainy!), so we’re offering you some of our best-loved comforting food—Hunter’s style braised range hens with lots of beautiful mushrooms, and Vegetarian shepherd’s pie, plus lots of vegetables, and even some duck eggs.
Thanks: We love Thanksgiving, and have put together an extra-special menu full of wonderful things to add to your feast. Sage walnuts, condensed mushrooms with dried porcini, apple chutney, fried shallots, special cheese, pie dough, oh my.
This one time, we made a Turducken.
Open House: the Berkeley Kitchens Open House is this Friday the 14th, from 5:00 to 7:00 pm! Do come say hello, meet our fine neighbors, and see and taste some of the wonderful things that are made here. 2701 8th Street, Berkeley.
