Best Old-School Vegetables
Normally, old-school produce wouldn't be terribly desirable. But think preserves, not rotten, and you open up a whole world of culinary treats formed out of centuries of human research into how to keep food from going bad in the winter. While Southern-fried folk would immediately think jams and preserves, both European and Asian people will find the fare at Cultured to be warming to the most old-school sections of the cockles of their hearts. Cultured is an organic pickling parlor, where the workers spend all day chopping cabbage, preparing saurkraut, kimchi, and shoo flu, an enticing mix of cabbage, goji berries, and green tea leaves. And all of the krauts for sale at Cultured will keep you healthy with a heaping helping of intestinally beneficial microbes.
