Duke’s Mayo Hot Tomato Summer Being Served Up this Week

One Mayo to rule them all, One Mayo to find them, One Mayo to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them.

There are two things everyone that moves to Richmond from the non-south, should learn right away or risk the wrath of their neighbors. Hanover tomatoes are the best and Duke’s is the only type of mayonnaise that should be used.

I just found out that Duke’s Mayo is partnering with local restaurants to present Hot Tomato Summer: A week-long event featuring seasonal pairings of tomatoes and mayo from participating Richmond restaurants. There are 13 participating restaurants, including favorites like ZZQ with a Put up your Duke’s Tomato Pie – House made biscuit pie crust filled with Shalom Farms tomatoes, poblano peppers, garlic, basil, cheddar cheese, and Duke’s Mayonnaise and Union Market which is offering up – Heirloom Tomato Sandwich with Edward’s Hickory Smoked Bacon, Romaine, Smoked Sweet Corn Duke’s Mayo, pickled red onions and a schmear of House Pimento cheese on Toasted Billy Bread. Find out what the others have on tap here.

For those unfamiliar with Duke’s check out the story on NPR.

Unlike most other mass-produced mayonnaise, Duke’s contains no sugar. This gives it the signature tang that has kept both chefs and home cooks raving about it since the company was founded over 100 years ago. “When they teach you how to make mayonnaise in culinary school, they are essentially teaching you how to make Duke’s,” says Fleer. “It has the right balance of richness and acidity.”

Southern Living posted just three days ago an article about what makes Hanover tomatoes so great.

“The Hanover tomato is defined by its soil, not by its variety,” David Hunsaker, a farmer at Village Garden RVA in Hanover, says. “So, you’re looking at this strip of sandy soil, and that soil is what makes Hanover tomatoes what they are.”

The sandy, coastal region, mixed with a little Virginia red clay, if you’re on Hunsaker’s farm, makes for a richer flavor in this bright crop. All of the growing circumstances – soil pH, composition, rain, and sun – marry to produce the Hanover.

Saison and Saison Market Closing

They’ve been around for almost 10 years.

The announcement was made on Facebook

Hi y’all.

It’s Jay here. I’m not going to bury the lede too much. Our 10th anniversary is rapidly approaching and to commemorate it we’ve decided to close up shop. I could not be more proud of all that we’ve done and all that we’ve accomplished in this little room. We’ve been incredibly lucky and fortunate to have so many talented people be part of the history of our corner of Jackson Ward. At this time, it just feels right to be able to put a bow on this project and let it pass. There have been and will be more wonderful projects from those that have brought

Saison to us all. I have more things I want to create and know that this current team has more they want to do as well.

12/12 will be our last day at Saison and Saison Market. Book your seat soon for one more taste. It has been an incredible opportunity to feed and inspire.

Thank you all for the appreciation and trust you’ve shown us!
Cheers!
Jay

BEER NEWS

Triple Crossing Signs Deal with Sun to Produce Power

From Facebook.

Not to be all Captain Planet-like, but we thought it worthwhile to show off just how we plan to harvest the power of the sun going forward. The shot above shows our newly installed solar panel array that will take maximum advantage of the abundance of sunlight that spills onto our roof at Fulton, otherwise going completely unused.
With this new solar array, we plan to offset most of our electrical power needs going forward and move closer to being carbon neutral. While not an uncommon undertaking in the beer game, it’s given us a deeper respect for the stewards of our industry who have made deep commitments to sustainability for all the right reasons.
