Farm to Table Dinner Gentle Breeze Honey

On Saturday I joined some friends for a dinner event in Mt. Horeb at Campo di Bella Winery.  The theme for the dinner was honey from Gentle Breeze.

Here is a run down of the 5 courses we were served....

Round 1 was a honey tasting plate feature 3 types of honey.  Spun (my favorite), Honey comb and wild flower honey

Round 2 was a family recipe Pasta e Prosciutto, an Emilia-Romagna classic with a little Tuscan flair.  This is a dish that I will most certainly work on recreating...fresh pasta, ham, cheese and a nice parmesan cream sauce....its the type of stuff dreams are made of!

 Round 3..the main course was Chicken Picatta with Agrodolce Onions and Radicchio

 Round 4, our cheese course was Baked Brie with clover honey and almonds on a homemade rustic crostini...Brie cheese isn't something lots of people enjoy, but when done right it's awesome.

Round 5..our dessert.  Clover honey ice cream with caramelized walnuts and a pizzelle cookie.  This was certainly a fitting end to a great meal highlighting some excellent local sourced products.

I strongly encourage everyone to go check out one of their dinner events.

Also check out the Madison farmers market and several local stores to pick up some of the fine local honey from the family run Gentle Breeze Honey
