New Additions to the Golf House Menu

Monday, 20. August 2012 9:00

From hipster food trucks to high-end restaurants, the taco is having a moment.  Chef Jim Mercer is now featuring a Taco of the Day on the menu at the Golf House restaurant.  Having previously owned a small Mexican restaurant in the Boston’s south end, Chef Mercer knows all about the flavors of the southwest and Mexico.  Some of the offerings include LA Taco truck style on warm and still soft corn tortillas with Jack or Cojita cheese and chipotle chicken with a pico de gallo, cilantro and lime.  Hipster food trucks and bars all around seem to be serving traditional corn tacos with local flair.

Chef Mercer is also including Quinoa dishes on the Dinner Menu, the ancient South American super food since 2013 has been declared International Year of Quinoa by the United Nations. This crop has become highly appreciated for its nutritional value, as its protein content is very high (18%).  Nutritional evaluations of quinoa indicate that it is a source of complete protein. Furthermore, it is a good source of dietary fiber and phosphorus and is high in magnesium and iron Quinoa also provides a significant source of calcium and thus is useful for vegans and those who are lactose intolerant Quinoa is gluten-free and considered easy to digest.  The Incas who held the crop to be sacred, referred to quinoa as chisaya mama or ‘mother of all grains’, and it was the Inca emperor who would traditionally sow the first seeds of the season using ‘golden implements.’  During the European conquest of South America, the Spanish colonists scorned quinoa as ‘food for Indians’ and even actively suppressed its cultivation, due to its status within indigenous non-Christian ceremonies.  In fact, the conquistadors forbade quinoa cultivation for a time and the Incas were forced to grow wheat instead.

Al Fresco Dining at the Bay Club’s Golf House Restaurant

Monday, 13. August 2012 9:00

Approximately 45 members were on hand recently to celebrate the opening of the Bay Club’s new screened-in porch at the Golf House.  The event culminated with a ribbon cutting ceremony with club manager, Craig Fleming along with members of the House committee.

Some of the special dinner events being held on the screen porch in August include a Local Seasonal Harvest dinner featuring the very best in local and seasonal ingredients with a special family-style supper.   As part of the JC100, a 100 day celebration of Julia Child and her incredible legacy of culinary teachings, the Golf House will be (in spirit) among 100 restaurants across the nation to participate in Julia Child Restaurant Week.  Guests will be seated in our new screen porch area at communal tables to encourage the sharing of stories and laughter, while enjoying a four course menu with wine pairings. And finally, a traditional New England Lobster Boil will be served on the porch featuring Steamers, Clam Chowder 1½  pound Mattapoisett Lobster, BBQ Chicken, Chourico, Potatoes, Cole Slaw and Corn on the Cob.  The meal will be topped off with Strawberry Shortcake and Watermelon.

The new al fresco dining venue allows the restaurant to increase the seating capacity as well as offer space for small private dinners and events.

Russian Icons: Windows to the Divine

Wednesday, 8. August 2012 10:37

Russian Icons was the theme of the week at the Bay Club recently. Members were treated to an illustrated lecture on the meaning and function of Russian icons, often called “Windows to the Divine” by one of their own members. They are an inherent part of the Eastern Orthodox liturgy and are used as vehicles for prayer and meditation in both the eastern and western Christian church. The process involved in creating an icon was shared along with some icons currently in process. After the lecture members gathered for a specially prepared dinner buffet featuring Roasted Beet Salad, Beef Stroganoff over Egg Noodles, Braised Cabbage and Root Vegetables, Russian Tea Cakes and Fresh Fruit at the Golf House restaurant.

Continuing the theme, members traveled to the Museum of Russian Icons, a small museum located in the center of Clinton, MA. The Museum houses more than 500 illuminated devotional paintings, some up to six centuries old, displayed in a series of rotating exhibits. It contains the largest private collection of Russian icons in America and is a true gem. After the visit to the Museum, member enjoyed lunch at J’s Restaurant at the Nashoba Valley Winery in Bolton, MA. Both visits made for a great day.
