April 2012: Sunday Brunch at the Farmhouse
On Sunday, April 1, Slow Food Kansas City “popped up” at the Farmhouse restaurant located in the River Market for Sunday brunch. Chef Michael Foust prepared an incredible feast that will not be soon forgotten. Check out some of our mouth-watering photos below and then get down to the Farmhouse located at 300 Delaware Street, KCMO, for a true “slow food” experience. Kudos to Chef Michael and staff for the glorious afternoon! We’ll be coming back soon!
Slow Food Kansas City Co-leader, Jasper Mirabile, introducing Farmhouse Chef/Owner, Michael Foust.
Chef Michael telling our group about the Farmhouse. They source their ingredients from 38 area farms and partner with Wind Haven farms to raise their own animals. They butcher their meat "in house" as opposed to a processing plant so the number of hands that touch the meat is minimal. This is "slow food"!
First Course: A delicious salad made with attic aged ham, local greens (kale, blood dock, chickweed), radish, grilled kabocha squash, fresh herbs and lemon-thyme viniagrette.
It was a leisurely Sunday brunch with lots of lively conversation.
Second Course: Slow cooked pork belly with black pepper grits, braised greens and green tomatoes, spring onion relish and a duck egg that was poached and then flash fried. All of this was sourced locally!
