“Burgoo is literally a soup composed of many vegetables and meats delectably fused together in an enormous cauldron, over which, at the exact moment, a rabbit’s foot at the end of a yarn string is properly waved by a colored preacher, whose salary has been paid to date. These are the good omens by which the burgoo is fortified.”
~ William Carey 1761-1834, “Carey’s Dictionary of Double Derivations”

The Croque-Madame, a marriage of bread, ham, cheese and béchamel sauce, grilled to golden perfection and topped with an egg sunny side up…
Confession: My older brother is the chef and owner and runs the back of the house, while my sister-in-law runs the front of the house. A true farm to table where they raise the pork and beef on the family farm while growing a vast garden for the restaurant during summer months.
