Tonight: Hard Apple Cider Dinner at Terroir

Terroir, 246 Main Street in Longmont, will be full of the flavor of fall tonight when it hosts a Hard Apple Cider Dinner, with five courses (regular or vegetarian) and four hard apple cider pairings created by Dick Dunn of Talisman Farms.

Here's the menu:

First course: Salad of arugula and frisee with roasted apples, gorgonzola, pickled cippollini onions, rosemary brioche croutons and a Calvados vinaigrette.

Second course: Cider-glazed sea scallops with butternut squash puree; or spaetzle with Brussels sprouts, pine nuts and maple butter.

Third course: Gnocchi with roasted root vegetables and homemade duck sausage; or stuffed acorn squash with farro, apples, toasted almonds, Madeira-soaked golden raisins and sage.

Fourth course: Tournedos of pork with apple cider beurre blanc and pancetta braised cabbage; or cider-braised tempeh with parsnips, carrots, red cabbage and fennel.

Fifth course: Apple Charlotte with Haystack goat cheese and Madhava honey ice cream.

The dinner, which starts at 6:30 p.m., costs $45; for reservations, call 303-651-0630 or go to
