As we hibernated over winter, we wondered...what happens when two people show up in a work space with farm fresh ingredients, a burner, a pot, and some kitchen tools and just start cooking? We emerged at The Riveter on the final day of winter to test a theory that community can be built around food. While people sat in the distance at laptops in their own worlds, we took over a kitchen in plane sight of all, and made lunch.
Chickpea and vegetable stew with pungent spices
Kale Salad with fresh herbs, lemon, walnuts and apple
Local PNW Quinoa
Fresh pressed Ginger tea with honey
One by one, folks crept up to the counter and inquired. We invited them to eat. Soon we had a half dozen people taking a moment out of a busy day to eat a warm meal and indulge in conversation.
