Birthday Dinner at Woodberry Kitchen, Baltimore
The week following birthday dinner at Momofuku Ssäm Bar, my parents took me out to Woodberry Kitchen here in Baltimore.
Because Woodberry sources all their ingredients locally, it's worth trying to eat here every season to try the different flavors of the year.
We decided to start with vegetable appetizers. First was wood oven roasted pumpkin with whole mustard.
Second, we had the oven roasted whole turnips with their tops. These were amazing- sweet, simply seasoned, and just delicious.
Since I was still recovering from pork butt overdose, I opted to get the day's special of rockfish with cauliflower and sunchokes.
Mom's dish was the spectacular beef cheeks in a pool of sweet potato puree. They had the texture of slow roasted pork and were fantastic.
In anticipation of the holiday season, we finished our meal with a yule log dessert.
