Wow it’s been a while since I have updated!

I would like to share all of the wonderful Eikaiwa Afternoon Tea classes from this Summer.

These are the pancakes that we made in Peko’s Special Vegan Pancake Class. We made homemade blueberry jam using agave instead of sugar. We also added some carob chips to some of the pancakes for an extra kick.

The warm squash salad (above) and the fresh chamomile tea (below) are both from my Herb Cafe Class. We used a variety of herbs to make both sweet and savory dishes like scones cookies and even corn soup!

We had an awesome time at the Organic Rooftop farm in Long Island city.  There was a great market selling vegetables fresh from the farm.  We also  got to enjoy the lovely weather and beautiful scenery while eating farm fresh vegetables.

These beet boat appetizers (below) were a real hit! They went great with the cool cucumber soup, summer vegetable casserole, and roasted radish salad from my Vegan Summer Vegetable Cooking Class.

This was one of my favorite classes, The Vegan Farm Table (below).  We used fresh vegetables from the Union Square farmer’s market to make a summer vegetable cous cous, mushroom stuffed eggplant and a warm peach salad.

Moving onto Autumn… this is the pumpkin pie we made in today’s Autumn Sweets Class. We used a REAL pumpkin! We also made sweet potato truffles and cranberry and chestnut cookies. I am looking forward to another wonderful season of classes.  Thank you everyone!

Madison Georgia- The Farmhouse Inn

image

This past weekend we took a small trip to Georgia for my Uncle’s retirement party. I have so many things to write about but I’ll start with this wonderful place at we stayed at in Madison Georgia, The Farmhouse Inn.

image

The Farmhouse Inn is a beautifully designed inn on 100 Acre Farm. Some of the rooms were actually featured in Southern Living for their wonderful design.

image

We walked through the trails around the farm, looked at the farm animals, and took a rest by a small pond along the trail.

image

image

We enjoyed playing with the farm animals, especially this cute little goat.

image

We also got to eat a great breakfast with farm fresh eggs in the morning.

Today’s Vegan Brunch Class

Yesterday we learned how to make a vegan brunch.  We made delicious and healthy dishes using all fresh vegetables and herbs.  We made a carrot parsnip soup, polenta with mushrooms, a tofu quiche and roasted radishes.  I also made fresh bread this morning for everyone to enjoy with the parsnip soup.


Nolita Market

The other day I stopped by Lolita Market on my way back from the herb doctor in Chinatown.

I really liked the way the market was set up as well as their interesting local products.

They served handcrafted pickles that are made in Brooklyn by a brand called Sour Puss Pickles. There were many different varieties of pickles including string beans, corn, carrots, and even cauliflower!

image

image

I also really liked how the liquid soaps are sold in bulk and you buy your own bottle and fill it up yourself. When you run out of soap you can come back to refill your bottle. This is a great way to avoid wasting plastic bottles.

image

image

They also had a variety of local jams that are pectin free and all natural.

image

They had some interesting products with Japanese influence as well like Genmai Rice Syrup (Brown Rice Syrup) and Organic Black bean spaghetti!

image

image

There was a great looking coffee bar at the front of the store but unfortunately I had already drank two cups that day…next time!

Marlow & Sons

IMG_7263

Yesterday we tried out Marlow & Sons in Williamsburg.

IMG_2815

When you walk into the restaurant you first go through the cafe which is not only a cafe, but a general store as well. The restaurant itself is resembles a canteen.  The menu was very small but everything that we ordered was really great, especially the swordfish crostini. Oh, And the oysters were great too!

IMG_7249

This was our first time eating at Marlow & Sons so I was surprised to find out that this restaurant had actually been around since 2004! 


Harney & Sons Tea Shop- Soho

This past weekend I visited Harney & Sons Tea Shop in Soho.

IMG_9489

The interior is really beautiful with a lot of use of wood and rustic accents.

IMG_1962

They have an entire wall filled with different kinds of tea in canisters!

IMG_6508

Tea accessories, snacks and books are sold as well.

There is even a tea cafe that you can sit down and enjoy a cup of tea at in the back of the store!
