We love Lebkuchen (aka gingerbread) so much that it inspired the name of one of our spirits. So to celebrate National Gingerbread Day we’ve made a loaf topped with a SNAP and sugar glaze. We suggest using this recipe for the bread and topping it with our easy glaze recipe below!
2 cups powdered sugar
4-5 tablespoons of SNAP
Add the powdered sugar to a medium sized bowl. Slowly add SNAP to the sugar, one tablespoon at a time, until the desired consistency is achieved. This should take around 4-5 tablespoons. If the glaze is too thick, add SNAP, if it’s too thin, add powdered sugar.
What other food artisans do you admire?
Our little region here on the Olympic Peninsula is producing some incredible stuff. Finnriver Cidery is a favorite, and we love Mt. Townsend Creamery’s gourmet cheeses. Nationally we admire Wondermade (marshmallows), Art in the Age (artisan spirits), Juniper Ridge, and lots of others.
Perhaps you’ve caught a glimpse – touches of sparkle here and there across the Free People website. They’ve slowly been hitting select stores, and they’re gracing the pages of a special lookbook we’ve stocked in all U.S. boutiques. Party Dresses, everyone. They – are – here!
We’re so excited about this year’s collection of party dresses that we threw a little party at FP Rockefeller Center last week to welcome in these gorgeous styles. Our beautiful friend and model, Martha Hunt, hosted as we sipped on cocktails from Art In The Age (recipes to come!), and filled our plates with goodies from Nourish Kitchen & Tableand Baked By Melissa. We learned new hair styling techniques from the extremely talented team at Parlor Hair Salon, and our ears rang with the mystifying hymns of violinist, Hannah Thiem.

Sauteed Red Cabbage with Root Liquor
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 medium red apple – peeled, cored, and thinly juilienned
1 medium red onion – halved and thinly sliced
1/2 tsp ground coriander
pinch of salt
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 head of red cabbage – cored and sliced into 1/2″ thick ribbons
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp tamari
2 tbsp Root liquor
salt & pepper to taste
1) Heat a large pan over medium heat. Once heated, add the coconut oil.
2) When the oil has heated, add the red onion and sautee. When the onions begin to soften, add the red apple, salt, and coriander. Continue to sautee until onions and apples have softened and caramelized.
3) Remove from the pan and set aside.
4) In the same pan, heat approx 1/4 cup of olive oil. Add your ribboned cabbage and toss continually. As the cabbage begins to soften, add the maple syrup, tamari, salt, and pepper. Sautee a few minutes longer.
5) Add the apple and onion mix to the cabbage and toss together.
6) Right before removing the pan from the heat, add the ROOT. Toss the cabbage in ROOT for just a couple minutes while the alcohol cooks off. Take off the heat and serve.
It’s cold and freezing outside. We need these Anonymous Ism socks! Fantastic brand, made in Japan with much care and thought. Grab them at Art in the Age.
Too bad the shop isn’t stocking the knitted hats…That we know about. But we will check and get back to you.
This cider cocktail is infused with earl grey + boozed up with SNAP from my friends over at Art in the Age. SNAP is the most perfect fall/winter spirit, made with hearty blackstrap molasses and fresh ginger. This time of year I kind of want to put it in all things, like this pie.
Art in the Age spirits are pretty major – and I feel pretty lucky to live in Philly, to be connected to them and their store, which is located just a few blocks from my house. Some of my previous recipes for AITA include theseRHUBARB Roasted Plums with Honey Whipped Ricotta + Pistachio Dust and these Blackberry SAGE Jam Cocktails. Recipes forROOT, my favorite winter flavor are on deck, watch out!!

EARL GREY SNAP CIDER COCKTAIL
Makes one, and although warm cocktails aren’t really my thing, I imagine this would make a really delicious warm bevvie.
Fill a short glass with ice, dump that ice into your Mason Shaker or cocktail shaker. Then pour in the SNAP, earl grey tea concentrate + lemon juice. Shake vigorously.
Pour the cocktail back into the glass and garnish with a twist of lemon.
Enjoy immediately, drink responsibly.
