I'd been wanting to go to vermont for a very long time. Originally, I made plans with a new online friend, but she fell ill, and I forgot I was flying to Seattle, so I canceled our Thursday reservation.
Quite serendipitously, however, Giggles had already made a Monday reservation at vermont and needed a date. Kismet! And vermont's dineLA deal was only $34!
I began my porktastic adventure with a charcuterie plate with serrano ham, pork rillete, copa, and country pate served with cornichons. Hog heaven. Literally.
Giggles happily dove into her beef short ribs on a bed of celery root and quinoa infused with citrus zests. My bite was luscious and rich. Very good.
My piggy path continued with pork marinated in cocoa and honey and slow-roasted with mashed sweet potato and beet tarragon salad. Oinkerrific.
Giggles ended with a lovely chocolate decadence cake.
I snarfed up my warm apple tart even though it did not have pork in it.
I loved loved loved this hallway to the rear parking lot.
