April at C&A

Once again, we wanted to showcase a few menu items from the previous week. Some, like the trout, are mainstays on the menu, and others are extremely seasonal.

Every North Carolina Trout is cooked in the wood burning oven in the restaurant's kitchen. Above, you can see the trout roasting in the pan, and below, the finished product!

We've previously posted different incarnations of the Vermont Burrata cheese salad, but the dish continues to evolve as the season changes, and the latest version of the plate is fantastic: creamy Vermont Burrata with jumbo asparagus, arugula, radishes, and a pistachio aillade.

This is a salad of carrots, shaved sunchokes, sections of mandarin oranges and mangoes, served with an avocado puree, cilantro and cashews.

Finally, this is the trofie pasta, served with short ribs and peas.

Bakery News and Events!

Things have been pretty busy in our bakery recently! Since the arrival of our new pastry chef Eric Wolitzky, we have been adding new sweets and tweaking old recipes. In the month of April, chef David Sweeney from our bakery lunch will appear at a few local events.

On April 12th, David Sweeney will be cooking alongside other Atlanta chefs at the Georgia Organics event 'This is Market: Lettuce, Turnip, the Beet'. The event will be held at Sweetwater Brewing Company, and David will prepare a sprouted emmer and kale salad with baby Vidalia onions and Georgia pecans.

Additionally, David will be teaching a cooking class on April 16th at The Cook's Warehouse in Decatur. The menu theme will be a springtime cocktail party, and all proceeds will benefit the Atlanta Community Food Bank. For more information or to register, go to the ACFB website.
