In addition to the sauteed fiddlehead ferns and the fiddlehead fern omelet, I raided my hosts pantry to complete our vegetarian brunch with roasted red carrots, a preserved lemon and maple syrup salad dressing, and basil lemonade made from the herbs in my host’s window. Try these maple syrup sweetened carrots with preserved lemon, preserved lemon salad dressing, and maple-basil lemonade.
My gluten-free host asked for something light but high in fiber, made from local ingredients, and preferably not too hard to recreate. I came up with this spa style chicken and cabbage with a vegan beet and orange side salad.
I tried llama chops so you don’t have to! On the plus side, the Salt Lake City farmer’s market may be the best in the country. On the minus side, sometimes exotic meats don’t go mainstream because they don’t deserve to.
