Green Garlic Soup
PAIRED WITH: Alloro Vineyard Estate Chardonnay
Executive Chef: Chris Smith
"Green garlic is one of my favorite flavors of spring, the subtlety of the early shoots leaves a fantastic flavor without the often sharp bite of mature garlic. I like to serve it slow-cooked in a silky smooth soup, the bright green color leaves the diner with that overwhelming sensation of spring and the flavor of the soup lingers on the palette in a way that craves a crisp glass of wine and a loaf of bread to sop up the remnants."
