I’m in love with Avgolemono. I mean really in love. The Greek version of Jewish chicken soup, its a hearty, soul-nourishing stew of rice, lemon juice and shredded chicken fortified with beaten eggs. On a cold, rainy day at Sarah Piccolo’s tiny Fork Cafe, you’ll be convinced its truly Heaven-sent.
As owner of Fork Catering, one of Sonoma County’s most-loved food trucks, Piccolo has honed the art of simple, nourishing dishes that never fail to hit the spot. And now, you can find them Monday through Friday from 8a.m. to 3p.m. in her Sebastopol catering kitchen/cafe.
We’re loving the healthy/decadent menu that changes up frequently, but includes savory bowls of polenta, goat cheese and greens; quinoa with braised greens, tamari pumpkin seeds and a poached egg ($6.75), a Greek yogurt bowl with orange and ginger stewed prunes and housemade granola.
Lunch gets even better with Blue Plate specials (griddled Naan bread with coconut curry lentils, raita and Liberty duck confit, $10) and grilled panini with Clover cheese, roasted sweet pepper puree and caramelized onions ($7). Then there’s the soup ($5), which also changes up but includes vegetarian options like ginger carrot as well as swoon-worthy tortilla and the Avgolemono I’m considering starting a serious relationship with.
