Caprese Ravioli is back! For the third year in a row we are combining a classic flavor combo into a stunning rav. This year the ravioli is half green and half red, the top and bottom of the rav is a different color. The Caprese Ravioli is filled with fresh-pulled mozzarella, heirloom tomatoes and garden basil. Rachael pulls the mozzarella in-house so prepare for some epic cheese pulls. The local heirloom tomatoes are roasted to concentrate that sweet and umami combo we all love as tomato season. Heirloom tomatoes themselves haven’t been hybridized for shipping so they have the purest, most decadent summer tomato flavor that we wait for all year. A favorite of many with our Pomodoro, Norma Sauce, and also delicious with Brown Butter.
From the Michelen Guide’s website; “So what makes an heirloom tomato an heirloom? Heirloom, a term used interchangeably with heritage, refers to varieties of tomatoes whose seeds have been passed down for generations.
Heirloom varieties are open-pollinated. This means you can save seeds from heirloom tomatoes, plant them and expect them to grow into new tomato plants. If two or more varieties are planted close to one another, you may end up with a new variety.”
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.”
