Last week, on October 12, Words Worth Books and Uptown 21 hosted Words Worth Eating with Peter Etril Snyder and Nan Forler. This was in celebration of Winterberries and Apple Blossoms, a newly released book filled with poems and recipes.
Here’s a look at the wonderful dinner Uptown 21 prepared:
The first course was an apple, cauliflower, and pickled bean salad in a maple mustard vinaigrette and extra old cheddar.
For the mid course, a roasted pumpkin soup with “off the shelf” relish and caraway oil.
Just look at that main course! Smoked and slow braised pork shanks over a warm sour cream potato salad and Nick’s famous sauerkraut.
For dessert, a strawberry-rhubarb custard crisp and Dutch apple pie. The recipe for this dish is in the book!
Mandy from Words Worth Books takes the mic!
Uptown 21 owners, Nick and Nat. Compliments to the Head Chef, Nick, the food was fabulous!
