Mother’s Day Brunch at Amore Bistro Sunday May 14, 2017, 10:30am - 2:30pm
The Local Strawberries are here from Osage and other area farms. This week we are offering a Strawberry and Spinach Salad with Pine Nuts and Feta Cheese, Strawberry Dressing and Balsamic Glaze.
This week and probably next week as well we will be working with butternut sqash in different soups, pasta and sauces. Not sure about the butternut squash creme brulee yet, but we're working on it.
This Big Calzone was a special request, an "Everything" Calzone which is basically all the Veggie Pizza/Calzone toppings combined with all the Meatlover's Pizza/Calzone toppings with Ricotta cheese and maybe some sliced olives and banana peppers.

Proscuitto wrapped fresh mozzarella with basil
Fresh Asparagus is a beautiful compliment to Grilled Salmon which we top with an Artichoke Caponata. We saute sliced asparagus stalks and fold them into the risotto, and grill the tops. Fresh lemon, parsley and garlic butter make a simple but perfect sauce.
This dish is entirely comfort food; rich, sweet, savory, garlicky, buttery with a little lemon and fresh sage, then there's the quenelle of fresh ricotta impastata which is downright luxurious.
We cure the salmon filets with fresh herbs, white wine and lemon, then we smoke the sides over cherry wood. The filling for the ravioli gets salmon (obviously), a little cream cheese, caper, fresh dill and marjoram.
