A wealth of ideas and acorn dishes were shared at the New England Acorn Cooperative dinner this weekend.
Thank you to everyone who participated, including Josh Trought of D Acres Farm for bringing new (to us) folks Bree, Ali and Dunstan (plus delicious D Acres Cider and neighboring wine); Peter T and Amy for sharing their gourmet micro-batch rhubarb and macoun apple schnapps; arborists Tim and Matt and our outstanding support team of tasters and wood fire stokers Peter L, Dave, Ella and Opal.
The menu included 100% acorn crackers, acorn seeded”life-changing-loaf-of-bread”, spaghetti squash stuffed with acorn meatballs, Shinnlinger pasture raised chicken with acorn gravy, acorn birthday cakes, (Happy Birthday Tim!) and snowball acorn cookies.
Our guest chef Dunstan went home with a few pounds of flour and by the next morning had created acorn ravioli and spaetzle. We’ll post more soon about his innovative and delicious dishes.
We are so grateful for our growing network of acorn enthusiasts and look forward to more mutually beneficial collaborations in the future!
Our very best to all of you,
Deb and Daniela
