I love Slow Food

Monday’s family dinner at UW Slow Food was: shiitake-ramp puff pastry galette topped with fresh watercress and preserved Meyer lemon vinaigrette; tender rounds of braised lamb wrapped in pork caul fat and browned, its richness offset by nutty red sunchoke and bitter black radish hash with snipped chives and wilted kale; and a dense, dry, crumbly, sweet gooey butter cake with sticky sweet bourbon-poached apricots and some kind of thick table cream. Cooked by the chefs of Merchant restaurant and “urban grocery”–one of the best meals I’ve had in Madison. And all for, as usual, a grand total of $5. Excellent.
