Go From Farm to Table, Tonight on Unique Eats

Tonight on Unique Eats, we’re following the food from the farm to table, and stopping by a Napa Valley restaurant that takes it a step further by growing all of its own produce.

Specializing in vegetable cuisine, Ubuntu in Napa Valley sources all its veggies from its farm that’s just a few miles away. All the food there is grown exclusively for the restaurant.

Executive Chef Aaron London is the man behind Ubuntu’s bright and beautiful vegetable fare.  From adjusting to seasonal produce, to managing a menu that changes daily depending on what’s been brought in from the farm, Aaron is constantly coming up with new and innovative ways to serve the freshest produce possible. Some call him the vegetable whisperer, and with good reason — not only does he orchestrate dishes that are hearty and wholesome, but he arranges them all into visually stunning bowls (and plates) of art.

Made with spiced tomato broth and dehydrated tomatoes, cooked in a classic tomato fondant, and then topped with confitted cherry tomatoes, Ubuntu’s Garden Inspired Extruded Pasta pays homage to the farm’s fresh tomatoes.

Ubuntu’s signature dish is dotted with the days freshest vegetables, and centers around a soft steamed bun that’s filled with creamy baratta cheese and coated in smoked pear skin.

But don’t fill up on dinner. You’ll want to save room for dessert, like this ice cream and figs dish.

Not planning a trip to Napa anytime soon? Not to worry, we’ve got a whole basket full of vegetarian recipes.

Tune into the Extreme Farm to Table episode of Unique Eats tonight at 10pm ET.

    I think it's a bit of a rip-off that they stole the idea and name from the Ubuntu Linux operating system. They could have at least given them creds.
