it’s another excellent morning in the kitchen – we have so many fun veggies hanging around!  The highlight is mushrooms from both Woodfruit (Nick and Rob) and Robert Sprenger – beautiful oyster and shitake mushrooms.  Serendipity pushed which way the mushrooms were going in the kitchen …. Nick called and said Rob was in town with mushrooms .. then 5 minutes later a gentleman called and asked when would we make moussaka again …. then 3 minutes later another lady called and said she is totally needing a vegetarian moussaka.  And the final part of the dance?  Sam Hudson shows up with yet another box of eggplant!  One of the reasons I LOVE chatham county and our farmers … the ingredients literally walk themselves through the door and our job is to simply cook what they want to be!

$5 Special – Cup of Lentil Soup, Vichyssoise or Greek Chicken Soup with one spinach pie and one cheese pie

MOUSSAKA – enjoy this delicious traditional greek eggplant casserole made with 95% local ingredients!  Our meat version features ground lamb from Lisa Duff and Cohen Farm ground pork.  Our vegetarian version features oyster mushrooms from Woodfruit and shitakes from Robert S.  The eggplant is a mix of Screech Owl’s fairytale eggplant and Sam Hudson’s eggplant.  And the bechamel was made using Lindley mills flour, Maola Dairy milk and Homeland Creamery butter.  $8.50 ADD a side salad $3

Chile Shack John’s Empanadas – not in the mood for the greek thing?  John has you covered with a super delicious empanada that he’s made up on his own.  He has hooked up some pinto beans, Cohen Farm pork shanks, some of his frito pie meat mix and some of his love …. these things are addictive!
