Pine Food Company Debuts Friday Dinner Series with Vegetarian Menu Tastings

Pine Food Company Debuts Friday Dinner Series with Vegetarian Menu Tastings

Home Newsroom Pine Food Company Debuts Friday Dinner Series with Vegetarian Menu Tastings

We’ve been loving the new energy over at Pine Food Company on Station Street! Formerly Pure Organic Juicery, Pine Food Company is now a full-service organic café and juice bar after co-owners (and real-life married couple) Alina & Jerry Jaskowiak invested in a major kitchen expansion and dining room renovation. With Jerry now serving as head chef, they’ve been developing a menu that caters to the vegetarian, health conscious diner and anyone who wants to make better choices about the food they put in their bodies. Alina says Pine Food Company is not just a café, it’s a way of life.

“When I think of the vision that Jerry and I have thought about relentlessly in the years that we’ve been together working at the juice bar, we always have emphasized the importance of community. We have always wanted to share our hearts with our community and what we think is valuable in this day and age where a lot of our connection to food and people and our bodies is being lost,” Alina says. “To us, it’s very important for each and every one of us to realize that our food comes from someplace. It comes from the most original source. It comes from the earth, from our friends, from our kitchen onto your plate. It’s a beautiful creation and co-creation of all of these elements and thoughts and creative processes that we put into everything that we have to offer to you at Pine Food Company.”

To add to the excitement, Pine Food Company just launched a new Friday 3-course dinner series featuring tastings of their vegetarian menu. There are 20 seats available for each dinner at $40 each. They’ve been selling out so be sure call or drop by Pine Food Company to sign up soon if you’re interested in their two upcoming dinners on March 23rd and April 6th! This past weekend’s dinner menu included Peanut Butter & Pickle Toast on Sourdough Rye, Roasted Pear Kale Salad with Ginger Dressing, Bao Bun with notes of Chili Garlic Paste and Fresh Herbs and Tahini Chocolate Chip Cookies.

You’ll find Pine Food Company at 100 East Station Street (enter on Cook Street) in Barrington. They’re open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday-Friday and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday and Saturday.

Salutations! Today we don't just have /one/ Word of the Day... no no no. Today, I'd like to introduce you to the days of the week! 😁

First things first, though! We had an --amazing-- club meeting last week. Pretty chill, pretty conversational -- and I got my butt kicked at both Kahoot and Gimkit. 😂

Onto the Words! So, there're a lot of ways to say the days of the week in Chinese. You can start 'em off with 星期 (xīng qī),周 (zhōu),or even sometimes 礼拜(lǐ bài). For today, we'll look at the way I first learned that sequence: 星期 (xīng qī)

So, if you know numbers, this might make a lot of sense. Essentially, the days of the week are numbered (Monday = 星期一, with 一 yī meaning "one"). The only exception is Sunday, which can be called 星期日 xīng qī rì , with 日 meaning "sun," or 星期天 xīng qī tiān, with 天 meaning "sky" or "heaven."

Okay, okay. Enough dallying. Here's the quick list:
星期一 xīng qī yī Monday
星期二 xīng qī èr Tuesday
星期三 xīng qī sān Wednesday
星期四 xīng qī sì Thursday
星期五 xīng qī wǔ Friday
星期六 xīng qī liù Saturday
星期天 xīng qī tiān Sunday

Thanks guys! I hope that made sense 🙃
