Local Food: Steven brings the summer flavors of southern France to the produce from our region with a fragrant Chicken Bouillabaisse, based on the classic Mediterranean fish stew, rich with fennel and tomatoes, and in our version, garlic scapes and scallions. The stew has a distinctive golden color that comes from saffron.

And have some strawberries while they last!
