W W W. C R A F T BY U M H . C O M W E ’ V E G O T N O B E E F W I T H V E G Cafe Flora has been an icon of Seattle dining for the last 25 years. Back in a time when impersonal vegetarian cafeterias and tamale pies were too often the most one could expect from vegetarian dining, Cafe Flora showed Seattle that it was so much more. Nat Stratton-Clarke got his start under the original Cafe Flora own- ers; then bought them out in 2016 when they decided to move on. Now this place that always served beautiful and delicious food has intensified its focus on locali- ty through farmer and forager relation- ships. You can be assured that when you dine at Cafe Flora, you will experience the bounty of Washington state. NAT STRATTON-CLARKE Stratton-Clarke has been kind enough to share one of Cafe Flora’s most sought after recipes: Lentil Pecan Pâte. After the restaurant changed hands, Strat- ton-Clarke quickly learned that this was one menu item that would be sticking around for the duration.
