Scott started cooking as a butcher in North Carolina. It wasn’t a conscious decision for him to start cooking but the process and the ingredients that surround food quickly became more important than his studies. He cashed in on his long held desire to become a doctor and began his restaurant career as a dishwasher and a ski bum in Aspen Colorado. {more}Loading

Good Bread [+ butter]

Bread-n-butter-IMG_3573_1000pxls

“Good bread is the most fundamentally satisfying of all foods; and good bread with fresh butter, the greatest of feasts.”
– James Beard

Many of our regulars love to start a meal at Park Kitchen with freshly baked Ken’s bread, a crispy pile of homemade crackers and a large, luscious spoonful of our handmade butter capped with a sprinkle of local salt and a tangy spoonful of its own buttermilk. We have offered many different toppings for our bread, but few satisfy as completely as the handmade butter we churn out every week.

Sicilian Caponata

Park-Kitchen-Blog-sardines

Our take on a Sicilian caponata perfectly captures late summer here in the Northwest. This seasonal delight, available only when Sheldon from Your Kitchen Garden brings us his September bounty, is an engaging mix of marinated and precisely grilled eggplant, local tomatoes slowly roasted in our ovens, golden Sultana raisins, and our house-cured anchovies.

Brick House “Essence”

Park-Kitchen-Blog-BrickHouse-Wine-label-tight

Brick House “Essence” 2013 Chardonnay. Explore the fundamental flavor and texture profile of the Chardonnay growing at Brick House. The grapes for this wine were grown in their own-rooted Chardonnay block. It was fermented in a single neutral oak barrel after light chaptalization, and there it remained for a full eighteen months until it was bottled, unfined and unfiltered, on February 27, 2015.

Your Kitchen Garden

Park-Kitchen-Veggies_Garden

Every year around this time the entire Park Kitchen staff takes the short 30 minute drive south to visit Sheldon and Carol Marcovitz at their farm – Your Kitchen Garden in Canby, Oregon. We plan this trip specifically after the initial push of the summer harvest is through and Sheldon and Carol’s variety of produce is at their highest.
