Banned Books for dinner? Friday, January 20
At the Herdic House, we’ve always cherished our beautiful local library, both for the books that are in it, and for the fabulous building itself. This week, we bring you an opportunity to give back to the James V. Brown library that can’t be beat: make a donation of $20 or more to the library, and we’ll pour your next drink on the house! And, in honor of great books near and far that have suffered for their art, we bring you a Banned Books literary menu…

  • the Catcher in the Rye: Holden Caufield was a big fan of Scotch and soda, but we’re making him switch it up… Rye whiskey, housemade coffee-cherry bitters, muddled amaretto cherry, Grand Marnier and club soda
  • Huckleberry Finn: a mocktail to celebrate Huck’s escape: Meyer lemon juice, lemon simple syrup, preserved local blueberries, raspberry puree and club soda—add a dash of vodka if you’d like a little tipple…
  • Animal Farm: a hearty winter chili made with all the animals on the farm, including those uppity pigs: Goat from EverView Farm, beef from Misty Mountain Farm, boar from Shaffer Farm, pork from Beaver Run Farm
  • The Color Purple: brie roastted with housemade grape jam and served with quick pickled purple beet and red wine bread—a beautiful plate celebrating all sorts of lovely winter hues
  • I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings: free-range duck breast from Cow-A-Hen Farm, grilled and topped with crispy duck skin, served in a raspberry-chambord reduction over toasted almond risotto
  • A Clockwork Orange: a real horrorshow of a dessert—Grand Marnier-drenched cake with chocolate-espresso sauce and a winter citrus compote
