The first spring berries are goodness itself.


We don’t know about you, but we’re tired of broccoli and grape tomatoes. As good as they are, we’re ready for fresh local produce—dirt-caked beets that taste like the earth, fresh peppery arugula and, maybe most importantly, ripe, juicy berries. Short of eating them straight from their cardboard containers, we like to keep the preparation simple, so the berries shine through.


Raspberry Cream Tart

Berries baked in a creamy custard inside a soft, cakey crust—simply delicious.


Blueberry Lattice Pie

The peekaboo crust makes this fruit pie that much more enticing.

Warm Berry Compote
