Eat Wild, by Kate Towell

My dear friend Ananya inspired this month’s newsletter theme when she shared her dandelion pancake recipe with me last week. Her adventure in back yard foraging reminded me that our yards are filled with a bounty of fun, healthy and beneficial foods. Her Happy Dandy Pancakes are our featured recipe this month =) 

Wild edibles are some of the most nutritious foods on the planet. You may have noticed them making a come-back on the menu of your favorite restaurant. Greens, nettles and wild mushrooms are local favorites. Look out your window. There is a treasure trove waiting for you. Rose hips and violet flowers are some of the richest sources of vitamin C found on Earth. Dandelion roots, greens and flowers are full of calcium, potassium, vitamin A, and vitamin C. According to Ayurveda, the bitter taste of wild greens makes them naturally cleansing and powerful aids for reducing sugar cravings.  

Wasabi Bay - An Asian fusion restaurant

Wasabi Bay - An Asian fusion restaurant

In the four years since Kyung Oh became head chef at Wasabi Bay in Mill Creek he has strived to put his personal touch on the menu, “Sushi can be just raw fish, but I want to put my ideas in the food.” Oh refers to his creations as Asian fusion because they combine Japanese, Korean, French, and Chinese recipes.

Oh’s special touch is exemplified with his unique Makimono sushi rolls. The Margarete Roll is named after his regular customer for whom he first created it. “She liked the Spicy Tuna Roll but wanted it to be even spicier,” said Oh. “So I made a spicy mayonnaise with Korean chili paste, added fried green onions and avocado, then topped it off with salmon and Tobiko (flying fish roe). It has become a very popular roll.”
