So Good You’ll Forget It’s Raining
Saturday, August 22, 2015
We’d already walked a distance in light rain, and now we were sitting down to dinner on the Marine Parade Grounds of the Navy Yard as it rained harder. As soon as we tasted the pork pate, none of that mattered. Made by La Divisa, the pate was creamy and flavorful, but with none of the excessive richness or slight funk of more traditional pates. We ate it as our first course at Diner En Blanc with equally excellent Oldwick Shepherd cheese and cured olives from Valley Shepherd Creamery. I wouldn’t go so far as to say the pate cleared the sky, but it did stop raining shortly afterward, music and dancing started, and yet another beautiful spot in our city provided a luminous backdrop for the evening.
For those of you who missed it or didn’t get enough of the Navy Yard, tickets are now on sale for Pheast, the PHS sponsored fundraiser for the wonderful City Harvest program. Come celebrate the urban farmers and community gardens who supply the program and the night with local produce.
