Bruschetta

- Baguette: TGM Bread (The General Muir) Drizzle with olive oil and broil until crisp
- Cheese: Formaggio We chose the Banjo Cheese from Hobo Cheese Co. It's has a mozzarella firmness that is perfect to slice and pair with bruschetta and baguette.
-Tomatoes: Flywheel Farm 
- Basil: Cosmos Organic Farm 
*Finely chop tomatoes and basil. Combine in a small bowl with a splash of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper to taste. Ad as much cheese and bruschetta as the bread will hold and Enjoy!

 

Meat & Cheese

- Baguette: TGM Bread (The General Muir) Drizzle with olive oil and broil until crisp
- Cheese: Formaggio: For this we went with a spreadable and mild goat cheese with mustard, poppyseed, fennel, and dill produced by Calyroad Creamery
- Meat: The Spotted Trotter Their Cacciatore (Hunter) Salami was our choice for the day. 
*Spread the cheese, pile on some meat and enjoy! 

Note: Picnics are best enjoyed with your favorite brew. Snag a six pack from the brewery or local package store to pair with your creations.
