It was a kicking’ party with great energy, a beautiful setting, delicious food, and dangerously tasty craft cocktails. Our advice is to mark your calendars next year- You won’t want to miss it. Hats off to our friends at Norwell Farms for doing it so right.12068703_1158939747454892_44914652751743372_o   Chef Sam created a Norwell Farms Heirloom Tomato and Roasted Corn Salad with Goat Cheese Crema and Peekytoe Crab Salad, served on toasted Francese bread… a delicious taste of late summer.

BELBER: Scapes Spruce Up Local Fare July 1, 2015 Here at the Corner Stop, the only thing that makes us happier than bringing local farms to table is to bring school gardens to table. Our friends at Holly Hill have been doing sacred work for years getting school children’s hands dirty and and giving them an appreciation of sustainable farming. We’re proud to play a part through our composting program, feeding the earth that feeds us. Come in to taste the fruits of their labor with Walnut Crusted Halibut + Garlic Scapes + Yukon Gold Puree.  Read Jonny’s column here…

We’ve got Garlic Scapes Grown at Hingham High

1619487_10153520982460757_463928582306204305_n   Janice from Holly Hill farms showed up today with a pile of garlic scapes grown at Hingham High School, making us pretty giddy… 11048698_10153520982245757_2737039666855158732_n   If you’re not familiar with garlic scapes, they’re the flower stalk of the garlic plant that are usually cut to allow the plant to focus its energy on the bulb.  Besides being nearly too pretty to eat, the garlic scapes are delicious, with a milder garlic flavor and a slight sweetness.  We’re thinking Garlic Scape Pesto for the Halibut…
