local inspiration

Since it was our last night, we decided to stay in Berkeley for dinner. Another restaurant recommendation from my boss was Gather. Gather offers a distinctive approach to California cuisine. They design their menus with an even balance of vegetable and omnivore dishes, and cook with both old-world/rustic and modern culinary techniques. The vision started in 2001 with Eric Fenster and Ari Derfel and Gather opened on December 15, 2009. It is located across the street from UC Berkeley on Oxford Street. The interior is very natural and you get the “farm to fork” feeling once inside. The one line that kept running through my head was, “There is this guy that invented a car that runs on water, man!” from That 70’s Show.

Dishes I tried:

Kale Salad

Kale Salad is served with carrots, pumpkin seeds, capers, and Fiscalini cheese. The kale was braised a little and almost tasted like cooked spinach, but still very fibrous. I think it might be better with chopped raw kale inside. The capers added a little salty and pickle-like flavor to the kale. The cheese was a little too light in flavor for me. The kale completely overpowers it. The carrots added a natural sweetness to balance to the dish.

Pork Belly

Pork Belly served with beluga lentils, fried Felton Acres egg, and Treviso chili. This was a fantastic combination of flavors – tender and slightly salty pork belly; bright orange, creamy egg yolk, and starchy lentils. I called it a re-invented “Pork and Beans” or “Bacon and Eggs”. Every ingredient played a perfect balancing act with each other.

Roasted Half Chicken

Roasted Half Chicken served with buttermilk polenta, greens, and heirloom tomato panzanella. Chicken was perfectly cooked – tender and juicy. The polenta was more like home-cooked grits but a little unrefined. The hulls were incorporated into the polenta which gave it an almost “cream of wheat” flavor. The panzanella should be served on the side so that it is not sandwiched between the hot chicken and warm polenta. It would help to keep the salad from getting soggy.

Lindencroft Farm’s Mint Chip Ice Cream

Lindencroft Farm’s Mint Chip Ice Cream with spring press olive oil was fantastic! It was creamy and velvety. You can feel the fresh cream coat your tongue with rich, decadent flavor. The mint is not artificial. The flavor and scent are as fresh as if you picked it from the garden. The chocolate is subtle but added with finesse to the ice cream.

Macchiato

Thanksgiving Coffee from Fort Bragg, CA made the base for my Macchiato. It’s strong and will definitely perk you up. Caramel -like flavors are imparted for a foamy smoothness on the palate. It is almost like a coffee liqueur with just the essence of espresso.
