Our guests are enjoying all the fresh fruits the local farms have to offer for breakfast. We have been getting local raspberries (red and gold), strawberries, blackberries, and blueberries and have been making wonderful berry tortes, berry short cakes, cobblers and crisps for our breakfast dessert. The peaches and plums are the best ever. We tried a new recipe inspired by our summer intern, Alicia for the fruit course. We baked a half of peach, brushed with a bit of butter and sprinkled it with sugar and cinnamon. Then we served it with a bit of marscapone cheese and garnished it with a fresh berry and mint. Not only were they beautiful by tasty as well. This would be a perfect summer dessert for dinner with a scoop of Lopez Island vanilla ice cream! This morning we made our famous lemon ricotta pancakes for breakfast with a side of chicken apple sausage. Dessert was a plum pudding with almond cream! All these recipes and more are in our cookbook, La Cucina Anna Maria: Good Life Recipes from San Juan Island.
