Long Overdue Return

I have been long absent from the blog although our local farms continue to provide us with amazing organic local produce - even in the winter months.
We are grateful.
We are still utilizing local garlic, Jerusalem artichokes, clover sprouts, beets and apples. We are also in the process of bringing some new items to the shelf for you including our Asian Dressing/Marinade (By popular demand!!)

Things have been flowing a little bit different in 2010 - I have been living in Bellingham, Washington half time working and playing and studying and collaborating with Justin Bilancieri of Bloom a vegan eatery serving organically conscious cuisine in Downtown Bellingham

and Chef Sprout AKA Bruce Horowicz of The Sun Kitchen & R.I.P.E. (Raw Institute of Permaculture Education)

AND completing a Quantum Midwifery course with The Matrona

My partner has taken over Olympia's kitchen duty and all of the responsibilities of maintaining our space at 8 Arms Community Bakery in addition to transitioning Raw Alchemy into the only business currently offering bicycle delivery in all of Olympia. We are pleased to be able to offer the first bicycle courier position in Olympia and to lower on impact on our community. Deliveries to both Olympia Food Co-ops are now being made on bicycle as well as scooping up most of the supplies.

We are in the process of creating some exciting new everythings!
Keep posted with the classes and potlucks here and at our MeetUp site.
Our next class is Thursday @ GRuB's Kirtchen, see you there!

02.14.2010 - Nori Local Consumption

The NEWS: We are pleased to announce that we have transitioned from toasted conventional nori sheets to Raw Organic Nori. The less exciting part is that it is coming from China. Earlier this week we located another source from the US and are planning the transition to cut down on food transit.
Yay Raw Nori!
