Poppy Restaurant

Poppy is Jerry Traunfeld's Capitol Hill restaurant, inspired by a "thali," a platter served to each guest holding a variety of small dishes, like a tasting menu served all at once. Poppy's thali changes daily to present Jerry's style of Northwest

In a warm, modern dining room overlooking the lively streetscape of North Capitol Hill, Poppy presents James Beard award winning Chef Jerry Traunfeld’s style of Northwest cooking. Inspired by the thali, a tray of many small dishes served all at once to each guest, Poppy's menu highlights the best of local seasonal ingredients, spices, and fresh herbs from its own back garden, and includes many options for vegetarians.

Jerry is making hand-pulled minted lentil and goat cheese strudel today.

Have you ever had May wine?

May wine is a beverage from Germany made by steeping the woodland herb, sweet woodruff, in Riesling. Sweet woodruff is grown as a shady ground cover in lots of Pacific Northwest Gardens. It’s a quick spreader so if you plant it, be aware it can go crazy and take over, but grow it anyway because it’s pretty when it blooms and you can make your own May wine.

The peculiarity of this herb is it doesn’t have much fragrance when it’s fresh, but let it dry a little or steep it in something like syrup, wine or even vodka, and the flavor and fragrance will develop. It smells something like vanilla and hay with hints of tobacco and honey.

In medieval times, sweet woodruff was a strewing herb. It was literally strewn on the floor of dwellings to make the room smell better and repel insects. It was also used to stuff mattresses.

But back to the wine. To make May wine, put a big handful of sweet woodruff sprigs (about 24) in a container. Pour in a decent but not precious bottle of not-too-dry Riesling. Cover and let it sit overnight. Strain out the herb and chill. That’s it.

If you want to make a May bowl, pour it into a punch bowl, add some brandy if you like and a little simple syrup to balance, then toss in some strawberries and float some woodruff and/or other edible flowers. Soon you'll dance barefoot on the lawn in a flowing garment.

Or come try it at Poppy. May wine is on the menu - this May.
