Every Monday Executive Chef Josh Lewin arrives at his first stop of the day, the Central Square Farmers' Market in Cambridge, MA where he picks up the freshest dish-inspiring produce he can find. After visiting the local farm stands, Josh heads back to BHHB, where he uses the produce to create new menu items that will cure any case of the Mondays. Recent dishes with the seasonal findings include, Poached Pete and Jen's Egg using Peagreens, New Potato, Lamb's Bacon and Elderflower, Serrano Ham and Three Melon Salad with Purslane, Blueberries and Elderflower, as well as Olive Oil Poached Sunflower "Heart" with New Potato, Purslane, Sunflower Seed Aioli.
Seasons, months and days come and go and so does the produce at Boston's local farmers' markets. This fall the Beacon Hill Hotel & Bistro (BHHB) is making the best of it with its new Monday Market Specials, a weekly special dish prepared with farm fresh ingredients from the Central Square Farmers’ Market hand-selected by Executive Chef Josh Lewin himself.
