When describing Tinderbox Kitchen, organic, local and sustainable are words often used. In fact, the tasting menus just use the ingredient itself as the centerpiece. For example, the charcuterie board may have different cheeses, but the accompaniments like the apples, crostini, simple greens and dressing could all stand strong by themselves. Entrees include scallops, steaks, duck and venison as well as what is in season. Each plate is prepared with the utmost care and if you can't make a choice on how to combine the myriad options, let the chef figure it all out.
