A Mother’s Day Picnic

Tuesday, May 12, 2015


For the third year running, we’ve brought our Moms (and Dad) to a local winery for Mother’s Day, packing a lunch bought a few hours earlier at the Headhouse Farmers’ Market.  This year was Bellview Winery, located just a few minutes from my own grandmother’s farm.  On our table was a Market Day Canele tart with mushrooms and fiddlehead ferns, Fat Cat cheese from Birchrun Hills, flatbreads and baguettes from Wildflour Bakery and fennel onion marmalade from Green Aisle Grocery.  The tastings were moved outside, and we all ate and drank with a lovely view of the vines growing nearby.  We brought home a bottle of Blaufrankisch, an unusual variety for the area, and two happy Moms.
