For fifty years I have painted, photographed, printed, and drawn the Spirit Tree, a four hundred year-old cedar tree that grows out of a rock in Lake Superior and is a spiritual icon for the Ojibwe people. I have studied it in every season, every time of day, every day of the year. For me it is a personal symbol of survival. --- Hazel Belvo.
Green beer scares you? We've got Greens that pour pure gold: Mythos, Finnegans, Martens, NordEast! Accompanied with a plate of Horta, steamed GREENS drizzled with extra virgin olive oil and wedged lemons, or Melitzana, pureed baked eggplant, scallions, and parsley and lots of garlic. Now, just in time for St Patty's Day, we've released Anna's line of organic Pistachio Ice Cream!
Asparagus has been used as a vegetable and medicine, owing to its delicate flavour, diuretic properties, and more. It is pictured as an offering on an Egyptian frieze dating to 3000 BC. In Ancient times, Greeks ate it fresh when in season and dried the vegetable for use in winter. A recipe for cooking asparagus is in the oldest surviving book of recipes, Apicius’s third-century AD De re coquinaria, Book III.
