Thank you thank you Eduardo Rubio, Chris Chiapelli, Nick Roumel and Damien Rivera for the kitchen magic this time around. With over 200 mouths to feed in 3 hours, you all were amazing. The two specials were really popular and tasty. The first was savory: Michigan black beans, rolled in local corn tortillas covered in homemade enchilada sauce and fresh cheese from Zingerman’s Creamery. The enchies were served with chicken from Salomon Gardens, and eggs from Dragonwood Farm, BP Farm and Schwartz family farm. On the side we offered a fresh kale salad from Green Things Farm, and roasted potatoes from Tantre Farm. Winter, shminter! Our farmers are taking such good care of us all year round. The sweet special was a Tres Leches topping on buttermilk pancakes, with strawberries that I froze in the summer. Such beautiful berries, giving us hope that spring will one day return to the mitten! And, of course, we had bacon from Black Oak farms– the best around!
Thanks to all the volunteers and guests who came out to support local food and sustainable agriculture, enjoy delicious food, meet new friends and reconnect with those we’ve met before.
Next Selma Cafe breakfast party is Saturday April 19. Please save the date, and until then, be well and share the happy.
