Fresh bamboo - Soba Umami Workshop

Posted on April 9, 2014 at 2:15 AM


 


I got my first order of bamboo shoots from Penryn Farms. Last year, I wrote a story about their bamboo shoots in Zester Daily (here is the link). This year's shoots are particularly tender and delicious.  I got so excited, I contacted Penryn Farms' Laurence Hauben and asked her if she would be interested in hosting a soba workshop, using Penryn's spring produce like this bamboo.  She loved the idea.  We are doing the workshop at Laurence's house on April 27 from 11-2pm.  Here are the details. (https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#search/laurence/1454e395f7434d23" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Market Forways).  Penryn farms is up in the foothill of the Sierras. It is a small farm, about 5 acres - but he has a treasure full of citrus trees, pears, persimmons and a bamboo forest. I have never been there but their persimmons and bamboo shoots are superb.  Penryn's bamboo makes me think of my girlhood days in Kamakura - spring bamboo digging with my grandmother.
