Maple Mascarpone with a Bacon Chip on a Crostini

 I recently went to Voodoo Donuts in Portland and had the famous Bacon Maple Bar - it was AMAZING!  I couldn't stop thinking about it... Chef dreams I guess.  I thought about how I could turn this into an Amuse Bouche for the restaurant and this is what I dreamed up.   Sprinkle a little salt on the finished product and enjoy!

Garden Time 2013!

High Steaks is very proud to have our very own Garden right in the back of the restaurant.  We are growing peppers, herbs, flowers, tomatoes and a few other plants to use in our daily specials and menu items.  The Farm to Fork movement is gaining a lot of momentum in the area especially after Sacramento has been dubbed the "Farm to Fork Capital of the United States" by Mayor Kevin Johnson.   As well as going to Farmer's Markets every week and rubbing elbows with the areas best farmers - we are starting to dabble a little bit ourselves with our own little Garden.  That's as fresh as it gets!
