As a light snack, you should consider ordering Bar Pastoral's English Muffins ($7). Lightly toasted mini English muffins form the base, with a dollop of quark from a local creamery, some orange marmalade, and a piece of crispy bacon. This light and beautifully presented dish is simple, yet flavorful.
Roasted House-Made Ham
The Roasted House-Made Ham ($14) with boiled heirloom potatoes is the ultimate comfort food. The thick slices of ham are slowly roasted and then topped with a blanket of melted Raclette, a semi-firm type of cow's milk cheese.
The plate of Spanish anchovies ($11) is a perfect dish to share with 2-3 friends, or to enjoy on your own. The marinated celery, pickled banana peppers, and shaved Podda sprinkled on top compensate for the slight saltiness of the anchovies.

Duck Rillette Parfait and Chicken Liver Mousse
The Duck Rillette Parfait ($9) is layered with sweet potato, pulled duck, and creme fraiche. Combining these layers of flavor along with the crispy kale makes the perfect bite. To the right is a Chicken Liver Mousse ($8) which is easily spread on a fresh piece of a toasted baguette. The bread and butter pickles and the spicy mustard add a kick to this tasty dish.
Chrissy Camba combines pheasant, pork, raisins, chestnuts, and bacon to make her version of a Country Pate ($9).
Each slice of cheese ($6); 3 cheeses ($16); 5 cheeses ($25).

Great Hill Blue
This dessert is a spinoff of an angel food cake. What Chrissy Camba calls the Great Hill Blue ($8) is a moist white cake topped with buttercream icing, juicy plums, and diced pralines.
