Sunday Supper at Frasca Food & Wine - September 10th

What a beautiful season to celebrate the non-stop, round the clock work of our local farmers. The Boulder County Farmers Markets become busier by the week, and seemingly every day at Frasca and Pizzeria Locale, we’re getting in the most jaw dropping produce of the season.
Earlier this year in March, Frasca hosted their first “Sunday Supper” – designed to be a community-style dinner that creates a space for our favorite artisans and guests to share a meal together.
Erin at Frasca says:
"There is farm to table, then there is “farmer at your table”, and that’s exactly what we’re creating with our next Sunday Supper on Sunday, 9/10, celebrating Boulder’s finest farmers.
Please help us welcome in some of the best farming families from Cure Organic Farm, Toohey & Sons Organic Farm, Buckner Family Farm and Red Wagon Farm as they join your table."
 
To make a reservation or find out more info please call 303-442-6966.

Summer Squash Soup with Basil adapted from Curtis Aikens
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 1/4 pounds zucchini, or pattypan squash, roughly chopped
    1 large onion, chopped
    6 cups vegetable stock
    1/2 cup julienned basil
    1 1/2 tablespoons butter, softened
    1 1/2 tablespoons flour
    Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
    Juice of 1 lemon
    Sour cream or plain yogurt as an accompaniment


    Heat the oil in a large saucepan or stockpot, add zucchini and onion. Saute for 5 minutes or until onions are translucent and zucchini is crisp tender. Then add stock, bring to a boil, reduce heat and partially cover and cook for 25 minutes. Add basil during the last 5 minutes of cooking. Mix the butter and flour together into a paste. Remove 1 cup of simmering stock and whisk in butter mixture until smooth. Add back into soup, stir until thickened. Remove soup from heat to a blender and puree until smooth. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Add lemon juice and serve with a dollop of sour cream or yogurt.
