This weekend, Home Skillet was launched, on wings of strawberry shortcake, past the reaches of word of mouth among friends and into the wide world beyond.
Along with several other local food businesses, we offered a menu item to be served at a wine tasting fundraiser for The International School here in Portland. I had spent the days leading up to the event making sure that this simple dish would really shine: finding the best possible local strawberries, infusing rich organic cream with fresh lemon verbena, baking over one hundred sweet cream biscuits. Everything came out beautifully, leaving us with an easy job once we got to the event.
We plated up our desserts, schmoozed (as I love to do) and mingled with the crowd, dispatched a handful of business cards, and called it a night. A great event for all involved. Look out Portland, there's tasty food coming your way, and it's called Home Skillet.
