Starting May 20th, we’re celebrating the last week of school with an extra special special featuring organic produce grown by the students at Fernbank Elementary.
The students have been busy learning throw growing, and we’ve transformed their surplus crop into a special edition BiBimBap. Fernbank hosted a school-wide tasting on Friday, so now we’d like to invite you to our neighborhood-wide tasting! This is a small batch special, so quantities are limited.
Traditional Korean dragon bowl with grilled ribeye, lettuce, sesame spinach, bean sprouts & fried egg over dragon rice. Drizzled with Korean BBQ sauce and garnished with sesame seeds & scallions. Featuring our homemade kimchi using organic produce grown by the students at Fernbank Elementary.
Eat Your Greens!
Just look at those beautiful greens. Our school partner provided us with kale, chard and cabbage to make our special kimchi.
Kimchi is a traditional Korean garnish using homemade pickled vegetables and seasonings. It has joined the ranks of the world’s healthiest foods because of its probiotics and has also become a cult-classic of foodies around the world. Ours is sweet and slightly spicy, which makes a perfect compliment to our BiBimBap.
Kale is among the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet! It is loaded with powerful antioxidants like quercetin and kaempferol. It’s an excellent source of vitamin C. Kale can help lower cholesterol, which may reduce the risk of heart disease. It’s also one of the world’s best sources of vitamin K!
Chard is a nutritional powerhouse — an excellent source of vitamins K, A, and C, as well as a good source of magnesium, potassium, iron and dietary fiber.
Cabbage is the perfect combination of beauty and brains. It’s a natural brain food that is also high in sulfur, a beautifying mineral. It helps with headaches and detoxifying the body.
