Sunday evening we had dinner with friends on Lummi Island. We'd gathered together the makings of a feast. First we drove down Chuckanut Drive to Taylor Shellfish and bought Shigoku oysters and mussels. On the way back to Bellingham we stopped by a shop and bought Breadfarm bread, a lemon, figs and creme fraiche.
It was a beautiful drive to the Lummi ferry and the water was rough enough to make it interesting. Once there we had a meal of mussels in a saffron champagne broth, raw oysters, sole meuniere with fresh vegetables, and for dessert, blackberries and roasted figs with creme fraiche, a drizzle of true balsamic and a glass of Sauternes.
These figs are leftover from that dinner. It was amazing.
