Another menu featuring the amazing peaches from our friends, the Masumoto Family farm. For years we have done these peach menus creating a variety of savory and sweet dishes from this legenday 4th generation Japanese American farm in the valley. And for this evening a special treat as we are pouring Marin Kombucha. Gerit Williams, brewer and co-owner of Marin Kombucha will be in the house pouring and discussing his extraordinary kombucha. And an added treat, Gerit is also a musician and will perform a solo set on guitar. Due to dietary restrictions of our guest this menu is free of soy, wheat, onions and garlic yet full of flavor, texture and of course, the worlds greatest peaches to start with.

blackeyed pea fritters with peach chutney and peach kuchela
If you know me, you know of my love of the food (and music and people!) of Jamaica and Trinidad and these flavors are abound in this appetizer. Fried, crispy blackeyed pea fritters served with 2 sauces made from Masumoto farm peaches. A spicy gingery chutney and my unique take on Trinidad's kuchela, usually made with unripe mangoes, spices, chili and mustard oil as i make it with unripe peaches
