There’s a chill to the air. Autumn foliage is in bloom. And Halloween is history. Very soon the year-end holiday season will be here–a time for celebrating, sharing food and drink, and making wonderful memories. We at Mighty Leaf are always inspired by the flavors of the season, which we enjoy at so many fall and winter gatherings. To prepare for this exciting time, we’ve cooked up an exciting new contest that recognizes the best, most delicious ideas from across the Mighty Leaf community. Introducing the Drink in the Season Holiday Recipe Contest!
Chef Vinita Jacinto is back with another astonishing tea recipe for the Mighty Leaf community to enjoy. Already she’s brought together the surprisingly complementary flavors of Organic Earl Grey and rice pudding and the unforgettable combination of Organic African Nectar and quinoa! If you haven’t tried out those recipes, you are doing your taste buds a disservice. Put them on the menu for dinner tonight! But now Chef Jacinto has outdone herself. Today she brings green beans to tea time and creates a standout side dish your dinner guests will go home talking about.
Two weeks ago, Chef Vinita Jacinto began to open up our minds to the flavor possibilities of tea recipes. Her first dish, Earl Grey Rice Pudding, got a lot of attention and rightly so. It was simple to make and tremendously flavorful. This week she’s offering up another simple, compelling fall dish: African Nectar Quinoa.
My favorite part of autumn is the mellow beauty of the foliage. A close second is a steaming cup of something fresh and delicious: spiced cider or rich hot cocoa with chocolate shavings. But the seasonal treat that has me most excited this year is the tea latte!
“Tea latte?” I hear you say, “I never thought of making a latte with tea.”
Wow are you missing out! And we’ve made a video to prove it. Introducing the Tea Latte Shuffle:
At Mighty Leaf, one of our favorite things is when an inspired chef incorporates the natural flavors of tea into a wonderful new dish. That sort of creativity expands our understanding of tea and its many tastes and aromas. And it gives us something exciting to add to our culinary repertoire–if only we can figure out how to make it!
That’s why we’re thrilled to announce a partnership with Chef Vinita Jacinto! Read More…
