|At the site of muddy soil and glimpses of fresh spring buds, local farm-to-table eatery Terre à Terre ushers in its new seasonal menu on Wednesday, April 15, with a sampling of the earliest and freshest local ingredients.”We love transforming spring ingredients into combinations that excite the palette and look like art on a plate,” says Chef Owner Todd Villani. “The baby greens, tender herbs and early snap peas of the season make for some of our favorite meals and bring new life into the kitchen. We continue to be inspired by our farm partners and artisan food producers who are working so hard to push the envelope on locally grown.”For the spring menu, Terre à Terre partners with Blue Moon Acres Farm in Pennington, Bracco Farms in NY, Goffle Road Poultry Farm in Wyckoff, Stony Mountain Ranch in PA, Unionville Vineyards in Ringoes, Bobolink Dairy in Milford NJ, and Sfoglini Pasta Shop in NY.Chef’s 5 Creative Ways to Celebrate Spring’s Bounty
