Barack and Michelle Obama validate my taste in Blue Hill

….I celebrated my birthday a couple of weeks ago with a multi-course banquet at the Blue Hill farm-to-table restaurant on Stone Barns Farm. (You may recall that I visted the farm last summer.)

That night, the waitstaff was particularly proud of their winter-harvested beets because of the sugars that concentrate at this time of year. My favorite courses included the sunchoke soup and the gnocchi with wild mushrooms and ice spinach, along with a dessert accompaniment of chocolate-mint herbal tea.
