GreenChef Vanessa Sherwood | African Ginger Beer

This recipe was adapted from ‘The Soul of a New Cuisine’ by Marcus Samuelsson, an Ethiopian born, Swedish raised chef with a restaurant in NYC. Then, quite by accident, I came across an article in the food section of the Tribune with a recipe calling for ginger beer and rum called a Dark&Stormy. Ginger beer can be found bottled in some super markets and international grocery stores.

The spiciness can be adjusted by either adding more or less ginger. But don’t be fooled, this is a great thirst quencher during the hot summer months.

GreenChef Melissa Davison | Tropical Salad with a Raspberry Poppy Seed Dressing

“This was a beautiful and refreshingly sweet salad, perfect for a light lunch. The mixture of the fresh fruit and greens together with a sweet and tangy creamy dressing was a great combination. I don’t usually eat poppy seeds, but it worked rather well with this dish and added a nice crunch. It’s important to remember that poppy seeds contain opiates like morphine and codeine, although the cultivated western poppy seeds contain little opium if any. I’m sure they’re safe in small quantities as a garnish as they are usually used.” – Indulge
