• Alaska Herring Week Starts Today! 06.19.17

    We are proud to announce that two of our clients, Ray’s Boathouse and Tilth are both participating in Alaska Herring Week June 19 – 25.

    Ray’s will be serving crispy fried herring filet, potato blini, pickled radish, and tarragon cream for dinner in the Boathouse.

    Ray’s has also provided the recipe should you decide to try your hand at cooking herring at home! You can find the recipe here.

    Chef Maria Hines and her team at Tilth have created a recipe for smoked herring paté served with house pickles, frisée salad, and radishes. You can find the recipe here.

    Alaska Herring, though consumed all over the rest of the world, has yet to reach that same level of popularity in America. Alaska Herring Week is here to put that fish on the map! It boasts more omega 3s than salmon, and is packed with flavor. Despite what you may have heard, herring can be served in more ways than just briny pickled herring. Not only that, Alaska Herring is sustainably harvested in Bristol Bay in Togiak, Alaska. Join Ray’s Boathouse and Tilth for dinner June 19 – 25 and see for yourself!

    Call Ray’s Boathouse at 206.789.3770 or click here for reservations.

    Call Tilth at 206.633.0801 or click here for reservations.

    Shanik’s Indian Gift Set with Turkish Wine
    Spice it up this holiday season and gift family and friends the opportunity to cook with Shanik’s housemade spices, drink fine Turkish wine, and serve up a delicious, healthy side dish.

    Chef-owner Meeru Dhalwala of Shanik is combining three special items for Shanik’s holiday gift package this year: a Masala Dhaba spice set, Diren Karmena Red Blend wine, and a Cauliflower Potato Purée recipe.

    The Masala Dhaba spice set is a staple in every Indian household. Shanik hand-sifts, roasts, and grinds the spices in-house. The traditional spice set includes Garam Masala, ground red cayenne pepper, roasted cumin seed, roasted ground cumin seed, dried fenugreek leaves and ground coriander.

    Meeru is excited to include a special Turkish wine with her gift sets this year: a 2011 Diren Karmena Red Blend. The Karmena Red blend consists of five different grapes, indigenous to Turkey and international variety. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Merlot make up the balanced and delicious Red Blend, giving it body, spiciness and supple character.

    Rounding out the package is an exceptional recipe from Shanik’s kitchen, Cauliflower Potato Purée. The recipe is a perfect substitute for rice, bread, or plain mashed potatoes. Shanik serves its Cauliflower Potato Purée with many of their grilled or seared meats.

    The complete gift package with Masala Dhaba spice set, Diren Karmena Red Blend wine, and Cauliflower Potato Purée recipe is $50, and is available at Shanik’s Market, next door to the restaurant. Shanik is located at 500 Terry Avenue North Seattle, WA 98109.
