Although we weren't exactly on the topic, while I was in France I had a cherry tart with an herb/ microgreen on it called atsina.  I think the chef may have said they get it from Koppert Cress?  Has anyone heard of it?  Does anyone know where I can find it?

Are there other easier microgreens with a bit of an anise flavor?

you can get Koppert Cress products in the US - the grow it out on the Island.

 

No idea what Atsina is though.  I'm intrigued.


Why not mayo?

koppert cress is on long island. most of the microgreen places will ship overnight to you but if you call maybe they have an outlet in manhattan. or order up some seeds and grow 'em yourself

'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

Wait. The French are importing shit from Long Island? (They could probably use some of the fish, too).

I don't know, she had a Swedish source, I believe, but I thought she maybe said Koppert Cress.  Maybe I imagined that?

I made a dinner tonight that I thought was pretty delicious. And it was all Lior.

Sneak - look who appeared on Leonard Lopate today (it was Melissa Clark who hosted).  He talks about trying differing spices and how they change the character of your food and it made me think of you. A friend of mine texted me to alert me to his appearance - she saw my copy of The Spice Companion over the weekend. (it's a beautiful book if you haven't seen it).
