This Week

Things of interest that have grabbed my attention. Things to inspire, fascinate, educate and generally get you buzzing.

Oh my goodness, has it really been that long since I last posted a 'This Week'?! 

I suppose it is a good sign that I have been so busy. Late summer in America Village is all about gathering and drying - That is, foraging for all the summer botanicals and herbs before they dissapear from the landscape - As much as we can carry, bring them back to the Apothecary and hang them to dry.

I have found this year I am having to dry nearly all of my ingredients, this is partly due to the extremely WET summer we have had here on the west coast, All the rain and wet weather effects the flavour, especially of some of the botanicals. 

I have also been working on developing the 'Apothecary Club'. People are always asking me if I do workshops, would be interested in doing them. So I have decided it is time. 

This Autumn will see the start of the Apothecary Club seasonal Workshops - A place where you will be able to create your own Tinctures, Blend your own Bitters and mix your own Cocktails. 

More details to follow...
