This week, Emily and I had the pleasure to attend one of the Cider Dinners at The Queens Kickshaw. It was four courses of absolute deliciousness:

Baby kale salad with lemon-parm vinaigrette, granny smith apple, hazelnuts -w- Farnum Hill Extra Dry

Poached egg in crispy potato nest, petite sorrel, mushroom-pinenut pesto -w- Scrumpy in the Gunks

Corn tortellini with succotash and tomato broth -w- Eve’s Sow the Seeds

Cheese plate with accompaniments -w- Castanon Sidra Natural

Poached pear, dulce de leche, cider sorbet -w- Virtue Ledbury

On top of that, we got to sample a flight of ciders from Descendant Cider, the first cidery in NYC! We tried the dry, semi dry, apple pear, and pomegranate hibiscus ciders. Personally, the dry was my favorite.

We hope those who attended loved it as much as we did. For both of us the corn tortellini was a serious highlight, tasting very much like summer. The filling had corn puree and cream in it, and it was bursting with flavor. The amounts served in each course was also just perfect. Thanks so much for a great meal, Kickshaw folks!
