Shot of spring: Spring pea soup shooters, diver scallop crudo, and Happy Acres goat cheese and strawberries? Farmstead Kitchen Catering is cooking up spring-a-licious food as fresh as a daisy. March 24 marks the new business's first winemaker dinner with Four Lanterns Winery in Paso Robles. You can also find these fresh flavors at Eberle Winery each weekend (wood-fired pizza and barbecue on the docket), as well as every Sunday at Sculpterra Winery (a perfect locale for a picnic; go to farmsteadkitchenandcatering.com) ... Flour House in SLO is feeling the seasonal change too: Try the chamomile marinated grouper fish filet with ginger scallops, kale goat cheese salad, and herby hibiscus chamomile sauce (flourhouseslo.com).
