The first thing they teach you in Critic School is to eschew hyperbole. After all, if everything is “the best” or “the finest,” you not only give readers reason to doubt your critical judgment, but by the time you run into something that really is extraordinary, you've used up all your adjectives.
So we won't get bogged down in heaping high praise upon Touch Supper Club's Farm-to-Table Supper last night at Stone Garden Farm in Richfield. We'll just say that in our personal annals of eating, this one rocked.
Watching Touch executive chef Jeff Fisher standing in one of the Garden's many sprawling veggie patches, pinching green leaves off a towering lamb's quarters, was just the start of what turned out to be a remarkable parade of pristine dishes served family-style on tables set on the farm's freshly mowed lawn.
