Local Food: Steven takes Savoy Cabbage and fills it with sunchokes and grains from Butterworks farm and combines them with a carrot puree. Served on a sauce of cream and brown butter with tofu from Vermont Soy, and sprouts from Pete's Greens the combination of textures mixed with the nutty grains is a unique taste sensation. The final touch of gratinéed Hartwell cheese from Ploughgate Creamery on top adds to the rich and flavorful subtleties of this dish.
