Focused on Fresh

February 11th, 2012 by theAddison

The Addison has always used fresh ingredients whenever possible in the meals that we provide to our guests.  We present fresh fruit at breakfast, use herbs from our garden and make hummus, bruschetta and guacamole just minutes before serving it at Happy Hour.  The smell of the fresh dining room flowers is often overwhelmed by the smell of freshly baked bread in the afternoon.
We have been moving towards an even fresher approach to our food preparation.  The salsa that we serve as a condiment for breakfast or Happy Hour is now made in small batches in our kitchen.    Most of the sauces and syrups that we serve are cooked in our kitchen and our jams and jellies come from our local farmer’s market. 

The freshest change that we have made is in the pouring of freshly squeezed orange juice in the morning with our breakfasts.  Although the boxed Florida OJ is good, the fresh squeezed juice is incredible.  The color of the juice is brilliant and the taste, you guessed it, is fresh.   We had a couple of logistic hurdles to overcome (tons of oranges equals tons of fridge space) but we are moving forward and our guests just love the new fresh juice.

Stay tuned for more changes as we move towards “The Addison, Focused on Fresh”.
