Things are getting back to normal around Ferndale, the Nooksack River is back in its banks, the roads are dry, and the weather is back to a normal dismal grey. We were planning a recipe from Sam Choy's "Little Poke Cookbook" to start off the new year, but we still can't find the book! We will keep that one until later.

Seafood Acessories - We have been stressing for some time the concept "mise en place" a French culinary term for "put in place" or getting the chopping, dicing, slicing etc. done before the cooking starts. It is an easy concept to understand, but virtually all of us fail to do this on a regular basis. To help in this regard, we are introducing Mis en Place Prep Bowls. We have them in a 4 pack with a capacity of 4oz ea. Ideal for garlic, ginger, onions, carrots, or virtually anything you need to prepare in advance. Made in USA.
