Tonight’s Special at Cafe Presse
Today’s special at Café Presse combines lovage from our own garden with morel mushrooms: Creamy potato-leek-lovage soup garnished with morel mushroom and Comté beignets
For those not familiar with lovage, it is an herb that has a flavor similar to wild celery, more pungent and earthy than its domesticated cousin. The lovage for this soup came from the garden of Cafe Presse’s dining room manager, so it doesn’t get any more local than that.
It has been a banner year for morels, so if you haven’t had the chance to try some this season, try some while they are here.
