Every Wednesday – Veg Out with Emily Zimmerman
Hoppin’ John is a rice & peas dish in the American South & Low Country, traditionally served on New Year’s Day. The origins of the name are uncertain; one possibility is a corruption of the Creole term for black-eyed peas: “pois pigeons”.
Served with a sautéed mix of the first local spring greens coming to market: spinach, ramps, fiddleheads, etc., and a savoury kimchee & tofu “bacon” or sun-dried tomato & rosemary scone. GF biscuits will also be available.
$12 (tax in)
Pay What You Can after 7:30
Dessert: Vanilla-coconut ice cream topped with smoky, salty, maple-coconut brittle and Chocosol chocolate.
