12.13.09 Oliver Ranch Beef Tasting

On Sunday, December 13, Canvas + Oliver Ranch hosted an Artisanal Beef Tasting! We had lots of fun putting together this event and couldn’t have done it without Carrie and Stephen of Oliver Ranch, Tracy Smaciarz of Heritage Meats, Seth Nischke of Open Space Meats, Rebecca Alon of Slow Food Berkeley, and our volunteers in the kitchen, Kristy R., Dave “as seen on TV” Kim, Guitar Fred, Neil C. and Brittany P.

Meyer Lemon Sauce
Juice and grated zest of 1 large Meyer lemon
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup water
1 lb butter
1 tablespoon lecithin powder
salt and pepper to taste

Combine the lemon juice, zest honey and water in a medium sauce pan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium low and reduce by half. Whisk in the lecithin powder, then the butter a little at a time. When all the butter is incorporated, remove from heat and whip until very frothy with a hand blender. Adjust to taste with honey, lemon, salt and pepper.

Have a great holiday and see you in the New Year!
