We are so happy to see the first daffodils and pretty pansies, and to get our first deliveries of spring onions. It's been a long winter here in New Haven Connecticut, so we are especially grateful to welcome spring.
During the winter months we took on some fun projects. We remodeled our bathrooms and they are really lovely. One customer even commented that "The bathroom is nicer than my dining room." Very sweet, but I hope he didn't mention that to his wife who was waiting for him at their table:-) As a tribute to our beloved organic farmers we commissioned an artist, Holly to paint farm scenes on the soffet that borders our ceilings, and soon, we will add two tables from City Bench, the fine and extraordinarily talented brothers who designed and built our stand up bars. These new tables will also be made of reclaimed wood from New Haven. More details to follow.
Final proofreading has been completed for our new menus and Erin should have them installed within a couple of weeks. We hope you like our additions. Please come taste.
Also, we have read many times about the amount of water it takes to grow just one almond - 1-1 1/2 gallons - Eeeks! And, given that most of our almonds here are grown in draught prone California, we've decided to switch from Almond milk to Oat milk for our smoothies, baking, etc.
We will continue to seek out ways to be kind to our one and only Mother Earth, and as we find ways, you can be sure we will respond. We are after all, in this together! And, we like it that way.
Everyone here at Claire's Corner Copia wishes you a healthy and happy Spring.
