A Culinary Journey

It's been great to see so many new faces at Nidulari lately! With new faces come plenty of questions of how Nidulari came to be, how I ended up living this life in the forest, and particularly, how did I learn to cook all this amazing food? Last week I found myself in a very... Continue Reading →

Summer 2017

A few weeks ago, June 1st, marked the official first day of hurricane season. This is how we mark the passage of seasons, in a place that's warm all year round, where the days of summer aren't so much longer than those of winter. The seasons are punctuated with dread and anticipation of the possibility... Continue Reading →

Spring 2017

I am many moons behind in my writing...again. How to even recap all that has happened in three months? If I shared every experience, every challenge, every achievement, every setback, I'd be writing a book. Yet I find myself writing in a more contemplative manner; personal, political, and social notes that may never be read,... Continue Reading →

People seem to be losing all sense of decency and moral integrity as they hurl insults at one another, publicly and privately. We are reminded daily what a... Continue Reading →

Oven Rebuild

I've been most remiss in my writing lately, having partway composed a post only to get caught up in another project entirely.

After over 15... Continue Reading →

A future

Nidulari is a fun place to be these days! I've never been happier, holed up in my shiny new kitchen, playing with all kinds of recipes–both new and old–at all hours of day and night. Did I mention night? Fluorescent lighting is amazing, after years of living in the dark. There's been a lot of... Continue Reading →

So, come join us for a celebratory "open house" 11-4 on Saturday, August 20th, kicking off our new opening hours, lunch items, drinks,... Continue Reading →
