In the Nourish Garden with Jahn
The garden is a happy place right now. The new beds we put in this year are filling out nicely with fresh calendula, nasturtiums, and other beneficial herbs and flowers. Hops planted in May are making their way up poles; promising shade for the coming August heat.
Another happy thing to see are the honey bees. A new swarm has hived nearby and the workers are so plentiful the buzz from their collective wings.
If you’re looking for a little summer entertainment or want a stroll before dining, come grab a fun new map of the gardens from the lobby and check your plant IQ.
From the Nourish Kitchen
Local Nameko Mushrooms: we are excited to be serving locally grown mushrooms from Skokomish Ridge Mushrooms. Here we have dusted Halibut with dried mushroom powder and then after a quick sauté we have loaded up the filet with an assortment of shiitake and nameko mushrooms. The nameko is an interesting little mushroom, it has a glossy cap which is a natural protein gelatin, which stops it drying out in nature. In the kitchen it has its own natural glaze and will help thicken any dish it is added to. It is a favorite in Asia and is often use in Miso soup.
