Our dynamic duo supplied 100%-grass fed young, whole lambs for a private party over the weekend, and it is our good fortune that a limited amount was made available to Carpe Vino. Chef is wood-roasting this USDA-certified meat at the Friendly Confines for dinner service on Thursday, July 2.
This is a very special opportunity, because we seldom go off-menu. And since we have just 20 dinners available for purchase, you must make reservations (phone only, 530-823-0320) and guarantee your spot with a credit card: $49.95++ per person. Sorry, but “no-shows” will be billed 50% for each person.
With this delicious menu, we anticipate everyone will arrive precisely on time!
First Course: Heirloom Tomato Salad with Purslane, Shaved Cucumber, Feta, and Za’atar Flatbread.
Main Course (served family style): Carved Wood roasted lamb with Harissa (a fiery, North African chile paste) and Charmoula (an herb sauce made from parsley and cilantro); Sautéed summer squash with garlic, mint, and lemon breadcrumbs; Freekeh with arugula, barberries, roasted onion, and yogurt. (FYI. . .Freekeh is a whole green wheat kernel similar to a wheat berry. Barberries are a dried fruit used commonly in Iran and have a tart flavor.)
Desert Course (choice of one):
Orange Blossom Meringue, Coffee and Cardamom Soaked Dates, Toasted Almonds.
Chocolate Ganache Cake, Caramel Plum Ice Cream, Caramelized Cacao Nibs.
