With the summer harvest in full swing, Canon restaurant in East Sac has added several dishes featuring locally grown produce to its menu. The additions include a yellow peach salad with butter lettuce, house-made labneh and a raspberry molasses drizzle; blistered pole beans tossed with pan-roasted oyster mushrooms, house-made kimchi and peanut butter miso vinaigrette; heirloom tomatoes with jalapeño persillade and fermented bloody mary jus; and summer squash with smoky baba ghanoush, seared Jimmy Nardello peppers and cranberry beans tossed in a relish of preserved lemon and Kalamata olives.

The dishes use produce from a number of local farms, including Beals’ Orchard in Placerville and Patrick’s Garden in Camino.
