Local Focus – Global Reach

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’m incredibly honored to have a piece included in the third issue of GRN TEA Magazine featuring James Beard Nominated Sawyer Seattle — where an anything-goes menu features inspiring comfort food crafted by Chef Mitch Mayers.

From the moment I met Rick Takagi, he was gregarious and incredibly generous. He was not only willing, but excited about answering my photography questions and empowering me to pursue my passion.
