Pretty sure that's not it, but it's good to know there's a new Persian Grocery Store in that area. I still miss Pars Market - they were wonderful!

How is Kabul these days? I always loved it but I haven't been in years.

Still excellent - I don't get there often enough either, but a friend wanted to go somewhere "different" for his birthday :)  Really the only thing that's changed is the bread which, per the waiter, is now actual traditional Afghan style thin bread (from the mystery bakery) rather than lavash.

We had yet another excellent dinner at Harvest Vine the other night. One of the dishes was "Pluma Iberica... a special cut from the pata negra pig."

 

I found a definition of Pluma Iberica "This cut comes from the shoulder section of the loin with more fat; therefore more tasteful even than the loin. It is thought that the shape and size is similar to a feather or pluma in Spanish."

 

And I found this article about pata negra coming to Seattle: http://www.seattleme...le-october-2012

 

Any idea of where I could find some in Seattle? I'd really like to try cooking it myself.

I was speaking to the waiter at Kabul on Saturday and he told me there is a bakery in the Totem Lake/Kirkland area selling not just Afghan style breads, but Persian and eastern European breads as well.  Unfortunately he couldn't recall the name, and I'm not having luck with my Google Powers today, so I'm hoping someone here might know the place?  I think he said it was near the 116th st exit...

That sure sounds like the right place even though it's not what he described geographically.  I will have to go check it out, thanks!

yes, Old Country Bakery is what I was looking for.  I picked up a loaf of Persian barbari bread as well as a bag of lavash, and if I hadn't just come from a big lunch I'd have been tempted to buy more of the lovely breads and pastries in the case.  Next time...

Are you guys familiar with this?  Do you know her?  She's on one of the food boards that split from CH and sounds interesting - especially her history with dumplings.  Just asking.

Are there any stores around town that still sell herbs besides parsley in bunches rather than in stupid little plastic boxes?  (looking for thyme, marjoram, mint & basil)

I've never even heard of Dolcetta Sweets, although I'm not a sweets eater so that's not saying much. Where did you find out about her history with dumplings? She sounds like someone I should get to know!
