Our tasting is a Turkey Burger ( ground with sage 😉 ) garnished with micro greens, tomato and cilantro mayonnaise. Accompanied by a new (soup) addition to the menu that contains hand made gnocchi. The chef and owner of Mother Earth Cafe makes a very good point about the value of hand made foods. The energy from the hands is transferred into the food, she explains. For dessert, we get a taste of the vegan chocolate mousse with raspberry sauce.
