On Adrienne Rolfe's estate, there is a community supper after the wheat harvest and again after the grape harvest with competitive overtime cooking done by:
the manor's cook;
any men who want to.
The food is a mix of:
Latin food from Italy and southern France;
some East European.
At the wheat harvest supper attended by Tom and Roy, starters are a choice of corn on the cob, ranch-cured duck prosciutto and pears, spicy tuna tartare, tomato fondant or chilled coriander broth. After his corn on the cob, Tom has:
Lucillian (?) salads with scallops and lobster tails;
a steak of Angus beef brushed with garlic-steeped olive oil, grilled over oak coals;
cauliflower with mustard and fennel seed;
Adrienne's extremely good wine, fermented slightly differently from on FirstSide.
