"Two old friends returned to @bachelorfarmer this week. We received our first steer of 2017 from @porkplants and Sam Gilman came back to the kitchen as sous chef:). Sam and I spent the better part of the week cutting, IDing, and cooking every muscle of the beef hindquarter (the back half) in various ways, in an effort to keep learning about the animals we work with. Some of the best cuts of 🐂 are ones you've never heard of! #wholeanimalbutchery #keeplearning"

Chef Jeni Britton Bauer reviews Groaning board at The Bachelor Farmer
$$$ | Scandinavian | Modern | American
"In addition to multiple slices of terrines made in-house, the board offers a colorful array of briny pickles and grainy mustard. Big enough for at least 4 as a beginning or 2 for a light supper with drinks. Have an aquavit to sip and you’ll be in Sweden—if just for a moment!"
