The Farmhouse recently hosted an art opening and preview of their new fall menu. Not only were there delicious eats being passed around, beer samples, wine samples, and music, but it was all free. The art is surprisingly affordable considering the size and content, which was created by valley artist Lesta Bertoia. Stockertown Beverage was on hand sampling Southampton Abbot 12, Lancaster Oktoberfest, and River Horse Hipp-O-Lantern.
Among the food was arancini that contained a perfect risotto and peas, fried with delicious crumbs and topped with truffle oil that delivered a savory, salty outside. A few different flatbread pizzas were passed out, including one with I believe chorizo, another with pears and both alarmingly tasty. An almond/butternut squash bisque with a float of sage oil topping the glass was one of the more interesting presentations, ringing in the craving for fall vegetables. The most out of place dish was a chilled cucumber and melon soup which would be more adapt to a summer setting rather than a fall preview. And for dessert, the most delicious carrot cake (normally not a fan) ever to grace my lips. The El Vee will be back to The Farmhouse in the future to do a full review. For now, enjoy the photos!
