Another Fine Forage – Food Porn Quicky with Mom

Another fine dinner at Forage – with mom, this time around. It was a late, late mother’s day dinner… because I was off gallivanting around the East Coast during the real deal.

On with the (food) porn! Yeesh, I feel so dirty saying typing that…

Sorrel leaves sandwiching… I totally forget. Sorry, I’m horrible – it’s been so long! And I’m a lazy bum – I fully admit.

Maybe some sort of greens and olive oil type mixture…

The classic soft scramble egg.

Inside is the best part… maple syrup and sherry cream. It’s cooked sous vide, if you were wondering… I’ve heard it’s easy? Yeah, exactly. Say whaaa…

Easy to eat, though… that’s for sure.

Lightly crunchy spring roll with an asparagus and crab blend beautified with delicious grains (dammit, yes, I forgot which grain… but I want to say toasted barley).

Yum.

Green crab and spring roll wrapper.

How it looked on the other side, in case you were curious…

This was definitely a favorite – young artichoke all frothy in a brown butter.

Yes, there was like crunchy grain in here too…. toasted barley?

So good.

House-made bread with smoked butter.

Forest greens and herb salad with whey, I believe.

Oh, and a mushroom sponge cake, if I remember correctly.

Hey, I think there’s the whey… It was a mushroom broth too, I want to say… And! The spongey was made in the microwave, said my server.

Wild spot prawn with turnip milk and seaweed?

There’s the prawn! Some more toasted… barley…. too. SO GOOD.

Scallops with gin.

And crunchy things… with aged sheep’s cheese.

And more toasted… barley…!

Lamb! I don’t like lamb…. but I like it at Forage.

The greens were toasted over fire, yum yum. The lamb was SO tender.

Sorrel with sparkling yogurt… I love this dessert. It’s so refreshing.

But this was definitely a new favorite!

It’s so gorgeous… and it smells so good.

Did I mention it has potpourri? Rhubarb and like these weird sponge clusters that tasted like a sweet (but not too sweet) cloud.

A bit of ice cream hidden underneath the cloud… because, you know, there’s ice cream in heaven. I want to say that was a bit of crushed graham cracker.

A before-you-leave-dessert… chocolate rock!

Very soft chocolate truffle-like rock with black sesame seeds.

Melts in your mouth… and in your hand. Nope, these chocolate rocks are not M&Ms, people… (you know… melts in your mouth, not in your hand…)

It’s so squishy and soft… See how my finger is so far in that rock!

Okay! I’m hungry. That was the end…
