Locavores everywhere are jealous of anyone with a root cellar. A root cellar is an under-earth method of storing homegrown produce to make it all last through the non-growing season. I don’t have one, but a girl can dream. Without one, my squash, pumpkins and gourds sadly just don’t make it past November. Then again, who needs a root cellar when you live near Cambridge, MA?
T. W. Food, the darling boutique restaurant that showcases pure ingredients and old-fashioned hospitality, is hosting a special ‘Winter Local’ dinner to share the delights of their root cellar, including all their gorgeous pickles and preserves. The six-course menu exemplifies 100% local ingredients for $65 per person (not including wine pairings, which costs $39 per person extra).
I’m dreaming of the Vermont suckling pig course, and the carrot and beet parfait with local honey. But you don’t have to dream. Make a bee-line for 377 Walden Street in Cambridge on Wednesday, January 20. Reservations are gladly being accepted at 617-864-4745.
