Local Focus – Global Reach

I’m committing a mortal sin. Or so my younger self would tell you.

Somewhere in my freezer, near the ice cream and homemade popsicles, there are a half dozen or so very black bananas. Bananas which I SWORE I would never eat.

Oh, how times have changed.

By 4:50 on a Wednesday night, the line stretched down the block and around the corner at JuneBaby. Whispers of turkey legs fried in oxtail fat spread from patron to patron. When the door finally opened at 5:01, the street was flooded with the savory scent of braised meat.

The line wasn’t new. It’s a regular occurrence in Seattle’s quaint Ravenna neighborhood. After all, Chef Edouardo Jordan won not one, but two James Beard Awards in 2018 — Best Chef: Northwest for his nearby restaurant Salare and Best New Restaurant for JuneBaby....

Thanks Loy! It really is an amazing spot! I can't wait to go back. There were so many good things on the menu that I didn't get to try.

In my humble opinion, a good lunch salad needs a few key components: hearty greens that’ll stay fresh through the week, crisp veggies for plenty of texture, grains to give it some stick-with-you fullness, and a tasty dressing.

This combo of kale, barley, and veggies meets the mark perfectly! It even had a creamy chipotle dressing to give it some zing. And the best part is, it’s easy to make — whether you’re great at buying socks or not.

I grew up in a meat and potatoes house. Dinners were served in generous protein, starch, and vegetable portions. We had soup from time-to-time, but it was of the chowder and stew variety. Brothy pho and hearty ramen bowls weren’t even on my radar.

Eight years ago that changed. And man, am I happy about it.
