The sweet corn is too good to put down! We had to make another special. This time this beautiful corn has an equally beautiful partner in this pasta; golden chantrelle mushrooms. Locally foraged by Forage North, also a TGA tenant, and butter poached for an umami soft note that really elevates the sweet corn flavor profile. If you have been with us since Rachael’s Pasta, you know we always have fun with the summer produce and love to follow the yellow brick road to tasty chantrelle bounty. The sweet corn from the farmers at Untiedt’s from Waverly Minnesota is the best tasting corn we can find. They have farm stands all over the metro as well as a presence at grocery stores and farmers markets. A favorite of many with our Pomodoro, Norma Sauce, and also delicious with Brown Butter.
From Foraged.com; “Chanterelle mushrooms are truly a gift from nature. Their appearance alone, with their vibrant golden hue and unique trumpet-like shape, evokes a sense of elegance and sophistication. But what do chanterelle mushrooms taste like? They boast a complex flavor profile, characterized by a delicate balance of earthiness, nuttiness, and a slight hint of fruity apricot. The texture of chanterelles is also noteworthy – tender yet meaty, making them an excellent addition to a wide variety of dishes.”
We love Graise Farm. Not only have we used their eggs for all of our pasta but Tiffany and Rachael remain friends. From their website;
“Grass-fed Raised humanely Animals In a Sustainable Environment
GRAISE Farm (pronounced “greiz”) is co-operated by Tiffany and Andy who are passionate about raising animals humanely and eating healthy, delicious food grown locally.
Animals at GRAISE Farm have daily access to graze outdoors and to soak up sunlight from dawn to dusk. For the best tasting and nutritious food, animals should live a happy, healthy life. That’s why Andy and Tiffany spend time with their animals daily and assure that they have room to run, root, play, dig up insects, and graze or eat grass (when in season)–things that animals do naturally.
Pigs at GRAISE Farm enjoy a spacious area to run, and they eat certified organic feed. In the summer and fall months, the pigs are raised on pasture where they graze on a variety of forages and woodlands. They live primarily outdoors and have shelter to protect them from the rain. In the winter months, pigs at GRAISE Farm have shelter and deep bedding to protect them from the cold MN climate and are provided daily access to the outdoors to root, run and breath fresh air. Graise Farm ducks are free-range. They roam the farm yard during the daytime and have a spacious shelter to protect them from predators in the evenings. Duck breeds include White Layers, Golden 300s, Indian Runners and Khaki Campbells. All ducks are fed certified organic grains. At GRAISE Farm, all chickens are free-range. They are allowed daily access to the outdoors from sun up to sundown, weather permitting, to roam around the farm yard. There are two flocks of chickens housed in separate barns with lots of space to move around and be chickens. Some of the chickens breeds include Barred Rock, Red Sex Links, and Americaunas.”
