Beans & Barley’s Autumn Harvest Medley


Beans & Barley's autumn harvest medley with root vegetable tart, whipped sweet potatoes, and cranberry walnut bread

I stopped by Beans & Barley today and was presented with a beautiful array of autumn delights, which they’ll be featuring at the Food Slam on October 2. Their signature root vegetable tart marries the deep, rich flavor of leeks with the heavenly heartiness of caramelized carrots, potatoes, parsnips, rutabaga, and herbs in a sumptuous, flaky crust. The garlicky whipped sweet potatoes with maple and walnuts embody the wholesome goodness of fall, bringing images of colored leaves to mind while gratifying the taste buds. The cranberry walnut bread draws upon the sweetness of the vegetables and elevates the whole ensemble to the level of paradise. These warm, rich, and comforting foods are the reason Beans & Barley is a Milwaukee institution. So get your Slam on at the Eisner next Friday and transport yourself to heaven!
