October 9, 2014: Nosh

Hello there,
How about that early fall heat? Makes you want to take your dinner to the park, or open all the windows and lay out a varied spread of cold things to put onto bread and leaves of lettuce, right? Well, we have something for that: the Nosh menu, with chicken liver and green bean patés, lots of cold marinated vegetables and pickles, and even some local cheese.

As usual, we’ll offer this menu for pickup on Thursday (October 9) 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 green bean paté; the omnivore version, with the chicken liver paté; or the all-in version, with both. If you eat bread, don’t forget to add a loaf of Morell’s pretty Tordu!
Vegetarian: $135
Omnivore: $135
All in: $145

It’s like this:
Chicken liver pate, half pint jar
Smooth and luscious, with notes of wine and sweet onion.
Vegetarian green bean pate, half pint jar
Chunky and rich with walnuts.
Eggplant celeriac caponata, pint jar
With currants and apple cider syrup; sweet and tart and rich.
Roasted marinated shallots, sherry vinegar, half pint jar
A beautiful addition to any salad or snack.
Marinated grilled squash, thyme and lemon verbena, 24 ounce jar
A very right-now thing: winter squash, done like summer squash.
Pickled grapes, honey and rosemary, 12 ounce jar
These are a Potliquor favorite, wonderful with cheeses or other rich things, or on their own, bright and herby.
ODT: oven dried tomatoes, olive oil, half pint jar
We’ve been making ODT since we were line cooks together at Bizou in the aughts; we think you’ll love them as much as we do, for eating on their own, combining with fresh tomatoes on a salad, or having on crusty toast with cheese.
Rye berry salad, olives, cucumber, mint, 24 ounce jar
Refreshing and sustaining.
Cherry belle radishes, bunch
Radishes are amazing right now; these will be great as a foil for paté or caponata or cheese, or on their own with butter.
Breen lettuce, two heads
We love this lettuce for its little gem size, its rich flavor, and for how pretty it is. Crunchy and cool, and great as a toast alternative: put your paté on it!
Local aged cheese, 6-8 ounces
We’ll choose a great cheese for you.
Extras this week include our fiery and delicious hot sauces, and Morell’s Tordu bread, a twisted baguette.
Thanks for supporting Potliquor!

All our best,
jennifer & laura
