Meet Ed George, Our Cherry Grower in Winters

Ed Cherries.jpgRecently I dropped in on Ed to pick up cherries for the upcoming Slow Down on the Delta fundraiser for Slow Food Nation (we're serving our Bourbon-Cherry Tart with House-Made Vanilla Ice Cream to two hundred guests along side several other exicting courses from chefs representing three other counties).  What a fun trip!  These cherries were the best looking cherries I've seen outside of Washington. Big, trophy-sized, proud bings.  Ed works with old family farms that have become neglected over the years and he rehabilitates them, saving these old farms and producing very special fruit.   When we talked about my interest in finding trophy fruit to feature as part of our dessert program, Ed's eyes lit up and he insisted we visit his orchard.  The trophies are there- ping pong-sized cherries.  I saw them with my own eyes.  Look for them on the dessert menu soon.  Dry-farmed Royal Blenheim Apricots are next.
