Asparagus Bread Salad

“Beast, my restaurant, is about bringing people closer to what’s in season from local farms. To do this, we use a six-course prix-fixe menu. The staff uses their creative spirit to make the most delicious food possible, and the customers don’t have to make any choices. Beast is incorrectly known as being meat-centric, perhaps because we have always showcased sustainable, locally raised meat, but we actually serve more vegetables than meat. Bread salad is a great way to show off good produce. It can be adjusted for every season, and it’s quick and easy to prepare. Oftentimes you can throw one together using ingredients you have lying around. The most important thing is to use the best bread, the freshest vegetables, and really good olive oil.”

Who Naomi Pomeroy, chef/owner
