coolinary pickles

August 21, 2013 • Nancy Wolfson-Moche

We had an extraordinary dinner at the Palm Beach Gardens farm-to-table restaurant Coolinary CaféKnowing we’d be leaving for the airport before sunrise, I got a jar of their crunchy pickles to bring along on our trip.


Chef Tim Lipman sources most ingredients locally, as shown on the blackboard below. Cool.


Lipman shared the ingredients for his delicious refrigerator pickles, listed below. I don’t have the exact recipe, but it’s worth a trip to his fine restaurant to taste them, and many other original dishes on his innovative menu that changes daily. My kids ordered from the main menu, but they had a blast coloring the kids’ menu.

Icing on the Cake: Testimonials

I’m very impressed by all the elements you are able to pack into the lesson without it seeming at all overwhelming: the review, the actual cooking skills, the creativity of coming up with their own dishes, the chance to present their creations, the opportunity to learn about and share thoughts on something else (in last week’s case, the feelings represented in the book), the execution of their  jobs, the responsibility for one’s station/implements and the overall following of directions…..all without losing the fun quotient. No wonder the kids love coming!  You’ve really created something special so kudos to you!
