In the Nourish Garden with Jahn
Lots of lettuce, greens, herbs and edible flowers are being harvested from our garden. We can probably say that we are serving the freshest salads in town! And we too have the purple haze…with Spanish lavender and culinary lavender happily growing in our garden.
Here are a few lesser known Lavender factoids…Lavender is high in beta-caryophyllene. This aromatic compound, or terpene, is a cannabimimetic, it mimics the effects of some cannabinoids found in cannabis. How about the Egyptians who used lavender in their mummification process? Lavender takes its name from the Latin root, lavare, to wash and Cleopatra was supposedly wearing the scent to seduce Marc Anthony.
From the Nourish Kitchen
Taste of Lavender: Visit Nourish through out the month of July and you will find lavender specials on the menu. You may see Herbs de Provence with lamb, lavender beurre blanc with Halibut, lavender with summer berries, cheesecakes and cookies. We will serve lavender lemonade and a lovely selection of lavender teas from Sequim Spice and Tea.

Stainless steel water bottles, so cool you will want to use them again and again. Insulated shopping bags, great for take out or a trip to the farmers market. Really cute coffee mugs in a size that won’t caffeinate you for three days! American Apparel T-shirts are on their way, as well as caps. We will have gluten-free baking mixes, house sauces and vinaigrettes available for order.
