Last night we sampled an outstanding entree of roast halibut, toasted farro and roasted leeks sauced with a pistachio pesto.

A great pasta dish and the never-better antipasti plate of mixed salumi (shown below) took us a long way to enlightenment.

Dessert involved four forks and a lovely finishing dish of Meyer lemon semifreddo, incredibly tart and intense, joined by poached rhubarb and delicate pistachio cookies. salumilaposta.jpg
