It used to be that I could count on Bakers’ Best for all my holiday needs. Whatever I did not have time, desire or ability to make I could pick up at Bakers’ Best to round out my menu. A few years ago Bakers’ Best closed their restaurant/deli/takeout spot and decided to just do catering.
Over the summer I heard talk about Marjorie Drucker of New England Soup Factory opening a rotisserie spot. Between first day of school, my son’s birthday, and feeling a cold coming on, I knew I needed to outsource some of my holiday cooking for Rosh Hashanah. I had an inkling that The Modern Rotisserie would fill the void that Bakers’ Best left and I was pleasantly surprised.
From sides and soup to chopped liver and gravy. There were plenty of choice. I took a porcini kasha varnishkes, a squash purée, chopped liver, a cider-brined rotisserie chicken, some apricot glazed chicken and gravy. As expected it was amazingly good. Tasty, homey, modern yet familiar.
