Last week I had two excellent dishes featuring grains. The first was made at home, with Pearled Black Barley from Maine Grains. The vegetables in the dish included sweet red peppers, chopped fennel, tomatoes, and onions. Protein was enhanced with chunks of Halloumi cheese. It was colorful and delicious.
Later in the week, I had dinner out with a friend, and we ate at Field & Vine in Somerville, MA. This was my first time at this restaurant, and the food was very good. Here are some photos inside and a copy of the menu that evening.
We shared a few dishes, but the highlight of the evening was the Whole Wheat Cavatelli, circled above. It was one of the best pasta dishes I ever ate — flavor, texture, colors, all superb.
