Tortilla Press Cantina’s Farmer Appreciation Dinner

tortillapresscantinaLogo

Collingswood restaurant stalwart, chef Mark Smith of the Tortilla Press and Tortilla Press Cantina (in Pennsauken), is renowned in South Jersey for his long-time commitment to local farmers. Tomorrow, he’s thanking his farmer-suppliers and saying goodbye to the year’s harvest with what he’s calling “WHAT JUST MIGHT BE YOUR BEST DINNER OF THE YEAR!” (caps his).

It’s a pretty bold claim. But I receive announcements about all of his many special events and I don’t remember him ever making such a statement. So, without any pre-judgment, I pass along the details of his $35 menu–which runs all night at the Cantina on Tuesday, November 19. Patrons are invited to thank the farmers, who’ll be in attendance themselves (drinks, tax and tip not included).

Appetizer: Fall Huarache with refried cranberry beans, goat cheese, shredded beet salad & avocado crème

Soup: Wild Mushroom Soup with Huitlacoche & Queso Oaxaca Tostada Garnish

Entrée: Roasted Chicken with Mole Poblano, Quinoa Stuffed Delicata Squash, Pinon, Pumpkins & Pomegranate Garnish, Caramelized Fall Vegetable Medley

Dessert: Mexican Chocolate Crème Brule.
