Valentine's Day is a great foodie holiday, not only because of the chocolate, but it's also a chance to dine somewhere special with the one(s) you love. Rich and I splurged on very special eight-course tasting at Blue Hill at Stone Barns in Tarrytown, NY. If you every have the chance to partake in this, be prepared to eat...a lot. The setting is very romantic, so it's perfect for Valentine's Day or any special occasion. The food is spectacular, and I really admire their locavore approach. There's no menu, they only serve what's fresh and in season from the farm. We had some excellent dishes featuring beets (the best I ever ate), fresh ricotta cheese and butter, parsnips, pork, and more. We were able to sneak a pic of one of our favorite bites, the mini beet burger (sesame seeds on the tiny bun included)!
Have a sweet Valentine's Day!
