How can we say “We Love You?”
We’re getting close to our birthday, here at Rubinette, and we’re in the mood to celebrate. In three short years we have grown a business that supports innovative local farmers, supplies the tastiest local restaurants and serves our favorite people: you!
That’s why we’re throwing a party! We want to thank you for all the times you’ve discovered a new vegetable, delighted over a juicy fruit or just plain dorked-out with us about soil health.
On Saturday, February 16th, let us show you some love! All of the Providore friends are coming together to thank you with:
$3 bags of heirloom oranges
$3 glasses of Cava
$3 Woodblock chocolate cookies!
$3/lb specialty citrus
Come share a Shasta Gold, kiss a Kishu mandarin, be besties with a blood orange! We’re here to celebrate you!
Refresh our winter cooking rotation with refreshing and delicious citrus recipes. Watch Josh on AM Northwest to share his favorite citrus varieties for marinades, salads and more.
We’re feeling the cooking citrus this year, trying out kumquat salads from Lardo and classic whole-orange and almond cakes. We’re also having a bit of a grapefruit moment – juicing reds into cocktails, cutting Oro Blanco into frisee salads and creating crispy brulée crusts on Mellow Gold.
Get ready for Raab! The sweet, tender inflorescence of turnips, kales, cabbages and mustards are the first sign of Oregon spring at Rubinette. We’ve already seen peppery arugula raab from Our Table Cooperative Farm and a parade of flowers will soon be here!
Are you in a root rut?
This time of year is heavy on roots – beets, parsnips, carrots and celery root. These hearty vegetables last through the longest winter – but winter can seem really, really long!
Infuse some spring into your root recipes with fresh flavors, sprightly greens and – you guessed it! – a little seasonal citrus.
We’re seeing the very first local watercress right now, and there is nothing more classic, light and springy than a watercress salad with roasted beets and goat cheese. Or use the same watercress and chop it into your mashed potatoes (with some celery root? Yes you should) for a peppery kick.
As always, we are available to answer your questions or give you more ideas – just get in touch!
