Asian Fun Coming!

Greetings from The Green Kitchen!

Welcome back.  How are we already mid-March?

Let’s talk fun!  The Green Kitchen is picking up steam, about to host our first Asian-inspired Pop-Up next week.  We’ve partnered with a local colleague, whom while we’ve traveled “in the same circles” here in Richmond, we’ve never met.  Her background is mostly Asian-influenced and she loves food as much as I do.  Not to mention, the menu is gluten-free!  Check it out on Facebook and join us Thursday, March 14.

And all that talk about Asian food had me look into my archives and find one of my favorite recipes – Asian Braised Pork Belly – yum!  Star Anise, Ginger, Dark Soy Sauce, Rock Candy, just to name a few ingredients. Pork Belly Tacos with Watermelon for dinner this weekend!  Be sure to look out for pictures.

Where would we be without all the culinary influences in our lives?  Being from the South, my first foray into anything other than delicious pinto beans with onions and cornbread, was Chinese food, which I still love.  Then I discovered Indian food, then Thai and Vietnamese.  Such flavors these cuisines have brought us!  What’s your favorite?

The Green Kitchen is almost too busy for words these days, but those who know me, know that just isn’t true.  We’re having surprise birthday parties at the shop, luncheons with supper clubs, teas, team-building sessions, and we even hosted an Oscar-watching party!  Our private event space is perfect for your intimate event of 16-30.  We’d love to host your next special occasion.
