  • GRDN AND THE MOON AND MQUAN

    We are so excited to host Michele Quan of Mquan Studio for our GRDN and THE MOON breakfast workshop.  Join us to learn more about Michele and the inspirations, processes, and materials she uses.  

    'Sometimes when you look at the sky, it can cut straight to the bone and this moment is what I attempt to convey.  My hope is that my work both serve as objects of contemplation to inspire reverence and as a source of encouragement and refuge." -Michele Quan.

    Guests will make a pinch bowl with Michele. We will write down our New Moon Intentions and put it in the bowl.  Michele will burn them when she fires the bowl. Bowls can be picked up at GRDN. 

    Mamie Brougitte will be back with their amazing cakes for a breakfast cake inspired by Michele's work. 

    Grace Galenti from Furnace Creek Farms will to provide Herbal Elixirs. Grace is a farmer and an herbalist. 

    The workshop takes place on Sept 9, 2018 at GRDN  between 9:00am and 11:00am. 

    Space is limited!

    Here is a fast and simple recipe to enjoy a raw honeycomb. Could be
    a tasty new addition to Thanksgiving Day!

    Pecorino Grilled Cheese with Honeycomb


     

    Ingredients

    1 baguette, cut into 1-inch slices

    Directions

    Preheat the oven to broil.

    Place the baguette slices onto a baking sheet. Top with the grated pecorino and broil until the cheese has melted and starts to brown, about 2 minutes.

    Remove from the oven and garnish each slice with a chunk of honeycomb.
