Summer is icumen in!

Spinach Slaw returns this week

Spinach Slaw returns this week

Tap wood, but it seems like the cold and wintry weather is FINALLY behind us and summer is just around the corner.  I’m noticing how late it stays light (sunset tonight is at 9:07!!!) and enjoying sitting on my porch in the evenings.  Out at the farms, everything is growing and sprouting–enjoying the sunshine and warmer days.

That said, a lot of people expect summer beginning to mean real summer veggies, such as peppers, watermelon, and tomatoes.  Be patient, everyone!  What feels like summer to us (school’s out, weather is warm) is really just the beginning of the farm season.  All we have these days are “early” spring treats like spinach (you’ll be seeing that featured

Springtime in the green house at Community Farm--baby plants are sprouting!

heavily in this week’s menu!), asparagus, rhubarb, and sprouts.  In a few weeks we’ll see more and more, with carrots, beets, strawberries, and more coming to maturity.  So much to look forward to!  I know I’ve been hungry for the fresh ingredients, but we have to keep in mind that “farm seasons” and “school year seasons” aren’t necessarily parallel.  Fortunately, we still have some amazing treats stored in our freezer to use up before their fresh equivalents are available.

Here we go:

This Week’s Chef Feature Selections:
– Potato Cauliflower Curry  {Chicken or Vegetarian}  – $8
– Roasted Carrot and Sunchoke Soup – $5
Sauerkraut with Kielbasa – Fresh and delicious sauerkraut from our friends at The Brinery pairs perfectly with smoked kielbasa, potatoes, and more in this traditional wintertime dish. Gluten free. Single Serving $10

Corn Chowder  – A little cream and a boatload of veggies set this summertime “chowdah” apart. Lip-smackin’ rich goodness. Not too heavy for a summer day! Pint $7

Sesame Spinach Slaw – This delectable sesame dressing is the perfect counterpoint to the fresh flavor of springtime’s finest spinach. A huge hit when we made it previously, we’re delighted to bring this amazing salad back to your plate! Gluten Free. Pint $8 or Half Pint $5

Salad Mix with House Dressing  — A delicious green salad blend featuring fresh seasonal greens from a variety of local farms, paired with our delicious seasonal salad dressing.  5 oz salad with 4 oz dressing $8

Telling our story

IMG_20130727_091119Long-time readers of our blog, of course, know a lot about Harvest Kitchen.  Today, however, one of my projects du jour is to write up Harvest Kitchen’s “story” for potential marketing use (!).  I hope you’ll indulge me as I share my write up here–let me know what you think!

Mary Wessel Walker, Harvest Kitchen’s founder and owner, launched Harvest Kitchen after working as an apprentice farmer at Community Farm of Ann Arbor.  One fall afternoon during the harvest, Mary and her fellow farmers were discussing ways to make delicious fresh produce more accessible to busy local customers, and one of the ideas they talked about was offering prepared food options for those too busy to cook or too daunted by the unfamiliar vegetables.  Mary was inspired by the conversation, and Harvest Kitchen was born.

Vibrant beets and carrots

Vibrant beets and carrots

These days, Harvest Kitchen works directly with a range of local farms to bring you ready-to-go meals that are as fresh and delicious as can be.  Mary has spent years cultivating relationships with farmers within 100 miles of Ann Arbor to bring you an ever rotating variety of options, reflecting the changing seasons.  The whole Harvest Kitchen team loves working with high quality and flavorful local ingredients–it’s inspiring to cook with ingredients grown and raised with care.

A typical day at Harvest Kitchen sees our talented team of chefs working together to hand-craft delicious meals.  Whether it’s roasting chickens, washing spinach, seasoning tomato sauce, or rolling pie crusts, the Harvest Kitchen crew brings a love of the craft and respect for the ingredients into their work.  That doesn’t mean we don’t have fun–classic rock and roll music and cheerful banter provide an ongoing soundtrack to our daily tasks.

Try Harvest Kitchen meals if you love supporting local farmers or if you just love great food made with care.

Doesn’t that make us sound fantastic???

Everything is Springtime Flavors!


One of my favorite things about how we operate here at Harvest Kitchen is our ability to highlight the fleeting, seasonal ingredients that are only available at certain times of years.  Springtime is one of the best times of year for this, because so few vegetables are available, as each new one comes out, we greet it with shouts of joy in the kitchen.  Using these spring veggies does require some culinary creativity, though, as not many people have a chance to work with ingredients like sunchokes and sorrel.  This week’s menu is a perfect example of a menu where we truly highlight the seasonal ingredients.  Rhubarb stars in two of our entrees–everyone knows rhubarb pies, but few have had a chance to try it as a savory flavor.  I think it gives both dishes a savory richness and tang, similar to the role lemon juice might play in similar dishes.  We’re also loving the lemon-iness of the spring herb sorrel as it brings an extra dimension to this week’s soup.  Finally, it wouldn’t be spring without asparagus, which we’re featuring in the risotto patties for the vegetarians. Later in the season we’ll be seeing more from heavy-weights like tomatoes, peppers, and kale, but for now, I’m appreciating these lesser-known, delicate springtime ingredients. Take a chance and try them with us!

Persian-style Beef Stew with Rhubarb – This delicious stew is a favorite flavor combination from Persian cuisine: it features delicious lean beef from Mclaughlin Farm and fresh rhubarb along with plenty of fresh herbs. Served over cous cous. Gluten Free option available. Single Serving $10

Chicken and Dumplings– A wholesome comfort food, perfect in any season: delicious free-range organic chicken with our tasty homemade dumplings. Enjoy. Single Serving $10.

Sorrel Potato Soup – The bright, lemon-y flavor of sorrel takes a star turn in this delicious soup.  Perfect for a light meal when paired with some crusty bread, this soup is like distilled springtime. Gluten Free. Pint $7

Green Quinoa Salad – Freshly cooked quinoa (a “super food”, forever known to us as “The Big Q”!) soaks up the flavors and nutrients of a raw greens dressing. Unusual and deliciously healthy for a side or salad, serve warm or cold. Gluten Free.  Pint $8 or Half Pint $5

Salad Mix with House Dressing  — A delicious green salad blend featuring fresh seasonal greens from a variety of local farms, paired with our delicious seasonal salad dressing.  5 oz salad with 4 oz dressing $8

A fan speaks!

Vegetable Soup with Cabbage

Vegetable Soup with Cabbage

We’ve had our first response to our #harvestkitchenlife contest (see this post for more info on how you can compete and WIN!).  It’s an awesome verbal report from Cathy, a fan of our Unsweetened Granola:

She writes, “I’m a granola addict. What’s not to love about the stuff? It’s crunchy, nutty, sweet, but healthy. I love trying non-commercial homemade varieties. Farm markets, craft shows and small specialty shops sell granola, so I know I’m not the only addict. Then came the diabetes diagnosis and I decided to try to stop eating any type of added sugar or sweetener all together. I had seen Mary’s Unsweetened Granola at the Argus Farm Stop shop in Ann Arbor. Before my diagnosis, I chuckled and gagged at the thought of granola without honey, maple syrup, cane sugar, beet sugar, or corn syrup. But after my diagnosis, I just had to give it a try. To my surprise, this stuff is amazing. The combination of nuts and grains and seeds has just the right amount of toasting to bring out a cornucopia of flavor. The combination of almonds and cashews, oats and seeds are satisfyingly crunchy. I add it to plain yogurt with some fresh fruit as a meal at least 5 times per week. I crave it. It makes me very happy to think that something so appealing is so healthy; because that’s not usually the way food works. This stuff has helped me change my life by kicking my sugar cravings without resentment. Thank you, Mary, for this amazing granola that I drive from Lansing to Ann Arbor or Ypsilanti for at least once a month.”
