We started out with a clear vegetable summer soup, simple boiling the stock vegetables and straining them. The color come from a heirloom carot and some fresh parsley roots gave a wonderful taste. A batavia salad with caramelized nettles was a highlight. I picked the nettles the day before. There are everywhere now full with seeds. They grow higher then myself (so there is no way that dog or man can do their business on them). The main course were nettle barley burgers on a fresh herb pesto and cod. And since it's berry season, how can we not make a berry tart, with berries piled high and cassis infused whipped cream.
Very proud of my students! this time from New Mexico, Mexico City, Norway and Düsseldorf.
