As part of my hubby's 40brews40days tour, we headed to a place called EARTH Bread & Brewery, a microbrewery that focuses on flatbreads for their food and is into the local sustainability movement. What's there not to like?
We started with some appetizers - the Cheese plate and Olives. There were three types of cheese, but the one I remember the most was the one on the far left - a Pesto Gouda, I believe. It was creamy with a brilliantly potent pesto flavor. Quite amazing. My only beef with the Cheese Plate is that it's not a very good value. There were little slivers of cheese, barely enough for 4 people to have a good, accurate tasting. The olives were quite good, with a good variety.
We ordered three kinds of flatbreads - A Chicken Mole, White Cheese, and Mushroom & Turkey Sausage. Of them all, I thought the White Cheese, below, was the tastiest. It had an acute simplicity that was perfect. The Mushroom was decent, but nothing to salivate profusely over, and the mole? Well, it was rather disappointing, I must say. I had just come back from Mexico and had had my fair share of Mole, and this did not have the sweetness or the chocolateyness I would expect.
