At the last minute (partly due to the fact that we forgot about a little thing called time zones), we decided to stop short of Statesboro and visit some peeps in Atlanta. We arrived road weary and hungry. Lucky for us, our friends Elizabeth and Jeff made a dinner reservation at Cakes & Ale, a client of their company Green Olive Media.
Here I am with my older sister Margaret. You can’t tell from the photo, but she’s got a little bun in the oven scheduled to make her debut at the end of October.
Everything we ate was delicious, especially the lardo (pure pig fat, cured in salt and spices), gnocchi with veggies from Elizabeth’s garden, and phatty cakes (a layer of fluffy marshmallow sandwiched between two chewy molasses cookies).
We topped it all off with blueberry, lemon, and rhubarb popsicles. And I loved the vintage cocktail glasses.
