Mini Mason Jar with Housemade Ricotta and Local Honeycomb



Pan seared Blue Fish with seasonal vegetables, garnished with local strawberries.


While driving through the North Hampton / Amherst, I passed by this interesting looking house who had been converted into a restaurant. Upon looking online at their menu, it looked quite promising and decided to stop by for a bite. Little did I know, this would become one of my favorite restaurants in the Western Mass area. Also, if you’re a big localvore, you’ll be pleased to know that there is references to the likes of 44 different local farms!!

If there was one dish that I favored and if you are in the area, please please please do yourself a favor and try it out. Mini Mason Jar with Housemade Ricotta and Local Honeycomb. Absolutely delicious. A cool smooth ricotta with a textured honeycomb on a warm toast. Holy smokes is it amazing!

A wonderful experience to learn the basics of Kerala cuisine from such a passionate and kind individual. I will definitely need to check this restaurant out next time I’m in town. The food I had that day was great and can only imagine their other dishes are like. If anything, try the Cardamom tea. It’s fantastic!
