Happy New Year From Seattle FoodShed

Happy New Year to all of you who joined us in the Seattle FoodShed in 2011! And thank you to every one of you for sharing our gardening and food adventures over the past year. It means a lot to us. We started out as a little blog, written entirely for ourselves, just to remember good food and garden harvests. And now look at us – now we’re a little blog with a few more friends along to share our recipes with. We like having friends!

Martinotti’s Cafe and Deli in Portland

Just around the corner from Kenny and Zuke’s deli is Martinotti’s cafe and deli. We stopped in to Martinotti’s, lured by the impressive meat and cheese display. (Apparently we are suckers for a good deli. Also, apparently Seattle needs more delis.) Inside, you feel like you’re in an old-school deli in 1970’s New York.
