Step back in the John Ash and Co. time machine for a week of menus from founding chef John Ash’s recipe archive (hint, there’s Brie involved). Celebrating the 35th anniversary of the restaurant (which also recently won Best Restaurant for a Romantic Meal in the Press Democrat’s Best Of Sonoma County contest)the $35 prix fixe menu August 10-15, 2015 will feature lobster, corn and wild mushroom risotto with carrot-corn broth, orecchiette pasta with tiger prawns, asparagus, Brie cream sauce, sun dried tomato pesto and deep-fried capers (I’m suddenly transported to 1986!) and venison loin in blackberry sage sauce.
The restaurant will also have a regular menu with dishes from the past 35 years. Considered the father of Wine Country Cuisine, Ash’s farm-to-table philosophy was groundbreaking when he opened in 1980. Imagine that.
