I started the dinner with a glass of the Urban Orchard Cider which is a cider local to Asheville. I wish I had more time to visit the Tap Room. I will have to save that for my next trip. This cider is nothing like the more popular ciders. It lacks in sweetness but is not dry. I would call it crisp, yes, very crisp.
We started off with a round of Caramelized Jerusalem Artichokes. Until this point I had never consumed a Jerusalem Artichoke. They nothing like artichokes.

Too full for an entree we decided to split the Walnut Crusted Tempeh with "enlightened" Cauliflower. First of all, who am I? Since when do I share food? I caught a stomach bug earlier in the week and I did not start feeling hungry again until Friday. In that time my stomach shrank. I did not finish a meal all weekend. Not cool. I am working to stretch it out again.
