Crème de la Crème

Local Food: Is there a better way to end your meal than a chocolatey, luscious and smooth pot de crème, a French version of pudding that we prepare and serve in a little glass "pot?" This disarmingly simple dessert is made with few ingredients- Steven uses just the finest fair trade chocolate, Butterworks Farm cream, and eggs from Applecheek Farm. Because of its simplicity and the proportion of eggs, the pudding sets loosely, and so it is traditionally served in a small pot, which gives the dessert its name, "pot of cream" in English. Baked to perfection for that layer of comforting skin on top, Steven adds a dollop of whipped cream and a bit of chocolate cookie for some crunch.

Around the Galaxy: With April approaching, get ready for the Galaxy event season to begin. Mark your calendars for April 19th when we welcome Baron Wormser in celebration of his new book Impenitent Notes. We have many great events already booked, and more are in the works. Stay up to date on
