Birdhouse's sweet pea pate: 50 Favorite Dishes, no. 20
So delicious you won't miss the liver
As a countdown to the Best of the Twin Cities 2013, coming April 17, the Hot Dish is serving up 50 of our favorite local dishes.
This light, clean, and richly textured spread makes a perfect start to any meal, and though it's velvety smooth, it's very low in fat. The bottom layer is a vibrant green blend of sweet peas and fresh mint topped with a layer of subtly sharp goat cheese, cracked pepper, and a scattering of pale lavender chive blossoms. Served with seeded crusty bread, each bite has pure clean flavor and luxurious texture.
