Although cherries got hit hard this year, peaches, plums, nectarines and apricots seem to have been less affected with most varieties appearing right on schedule and in good supply. As we head towards July many of the mid-season varieties are taking a turn on both the Oliveto dinner menu and the dessert menu and occasionally showing up in the early a.m. cafe in the form of a pop-up crostata (which goes great with an cappuccino btw).
ON THE MENU:
Santa Rosa Sour
Platte Valley straight corn whiskey; Santa Rosa plum; Oliveto white peach shrub; lime; egg white; Angostura bitters
Terrina of pigeon with pistachios, Santa Rosa plums, old aceto balsamico, and crostino
Panzanella of grilled peaches with wild arugula, balsamic vinegar, and Pecorino cheese
Blossom Bluff aprium crostata with almond ice cream
Oven-roasted Regina peach with shortcake and fennel pollen
