Faces of Fauquier: Florist finds new career in Orlean - Fauquier NowTuesday, February 28, 2017
And, I literally went from Seattle to New Mexico to California and to New England. I went everywhere looking for this place. And, I just happened to stumble across the Warrenton area.”When the Vero Beach transplant arrived in Fauquier in early 2016, she planned to continue working as a florist.Ms. Gaier had applied for jobs at a Warrenton florist and an area estate to work in its gardens.Meanwhile, she hung out at The Orlean Market.“I would come here and have wine,” Ms. Gaier says. “It was like the first place I would go to be social.”Through those visits, she met owner Kia Kianersi, who bought the restaurant about two years ago.“I would just come to the bar and have a couple of glasses of wine, and we started talking,” Ms. Gaier says. “It wasn’t for a couple of months that we started thinking like ‘Hey, we kind of like each other’.”They have been a couple ever since.In March 2016, Ms. Gaier started working as a cashier at the restaurant and market.Out of necessity — because of high turnover — she became its chief cook, drawing on culinary experience gained through a lifelong interest in food.“We had gone through a lot of chefs and cooks at the market,” says Ms. Gaier, who lived in Pittsburgh until the age of 15, when she and her family moved to Florida. “I’m a home cook.“My family is a very foodie family. My sister is a classically-trained pastry chef. And my dad, when he was in college at American University, was a sous chef in a restaurant in D.C. My whole family, they love to eat, they love to cook. So, I sort of just grew up around it.”To this day, Ms. Gaier’s mother in many ways remains her greatest influence in the kitchen.“My mom is a fantastic co... http://www.fauquiernow.com/index.php/fauquier_news/article/fauquier-faces-of-fauquier-florist-finds-new-career-in-orlean-2017
Laurence Reisman: Logic goes out window when association trashes flowers? - TCPalmTuesday, September 27, 2016
Steve Glaser's colorful yard in Vero Beach's Bradford Place was beautiful by many accounts on July 5, 2016.(Photo: CONTRIBUTED PHOTO BY STEVE GLASER)Steve Glaser HAD the nicest yard in his neighborhood.His Realtor even said so.“You had the nicest landscaped property in Bradford Place with amazing curb appeal,” Jill Arsenault wrote Glaser. “How did you go from the nicest home in the community to what it is today? We certainly need to lower your asking price.”What happened had nothing to do with excessive summer rain, fire or armadillos. Landscapers hired by Glaser’s homeowners association yanked out marigolds, impatiens, begonias and more — including staghorn ferns, gifts from his father. Glaser said he got wind of the destruction only after he heard his dogs barking at the crowd outside.“I went from the nicest property to the worst,” said Glaser, 60, a longtime professional photographer who moved to the gated community of attached homes off Oslo Road, Vero Beach, in January 2014. He’d brought with him numerous flower... http://www.tcpalm.com/story/opinion/columnists/laurence-reisman/2016/09/20/laurence-reisman-logic-goes-out-window-when-association-trashes-flowers/90697672/

A fresh brunch menu that combines spring flavours and flowers - The Globe and MailWednesday, March 31, 2021
Just ensure your flowers have been grown chemical-free (your florist should know – or pluck them from your own garden to be sure) and that you can positively identify the variety. Or seek out ingredients such as bottled rosewater or dried culinary lavender to help bring your brunch into bloom. St-Germain, an elderflower liqueur, is available in most liquor stores, and you can even buy bottles of elderflower syrup at IKEA. Garden Gravlax Serves 10-12 Curing your own salmon is surprisingly simple. A dry cure of sugar and salt, spiked with citrus, spices and perhaps some peppery nasturtiums, is rubbed heavily over a fresh fillet, which is then weighted down and left for 24 hours. Once cured and thinly sliced, the delicate white and purple flowers of blooming dill and chives are ideal for garnishing your gravlax. Nasturtiums are a little more unexpected: Both petals and leaves add a fresh, radish-like flavour that’s delicious tucked into your bagel and cream cheese. 1 tablespoon coriander seed, toasted 1 tablespoon fennel seed, toasted A few nasturtium flowers or leaves 1/2 cup Diamond Crystal kosher salt (or 1/4 cup fine table salt) 1/2 cup sugar 2-3 teaspoons grated orange, lemon or lime zest One 1 pound (approximately) salmon fillet Edible flowers, for garnish Crush the coriander and fennel roughly in a mortar and pestle or pulse them in a spice grinder. If you like, crush in a few nasturtium leaves or petals, or try other edible flowers – perhaps a few calendula petals or tangerine marigolds. In a medium bowl, combine the salt, sugar, citrus zest, crushed spices and flowers. Place a piece of plastic wrap over a shallow baking dish or rimmed sheet large enough to accommodate the salmon. Scatter half the salt mixture over it and lay the fillet skin side down overtop. Sprinkle the rest of the cure mixture over the fish and spread it evenly to coat. Bring the edge of the plastic wrap up to cover the fish, place a small cutting board or second sheet on top and weigh it down with a can or two; refrigerate all day or overnight. After about 12 hours, unwrap the fish and flip it over, rerubbing the (now wet) cure over the surface; rewrap and return to the fridge for another 12 hours. Wipe or rinse off the salt mixture, pat the fish dry and slice it thinly to serve with crackers, flatbread or bagels, and cream cheese, labneh or whipped creamy (Macedonian-style) feta, with nasturtiums or other edible flowers for garnish.
