Tough Chai Carrot Soup

By Jacqui | Wednesday, September 2nd, 2015 at 8:47 pm

One of our customers, Jess Stevens, sent us this adapted recipe for a Carrot Soup using our Tough Chai and the garam masala spiced cashews from the Whole Earth Center. If you decide to make this soup, order our Chai “straight up”, which means it will not be served with milk. We make our Chai almost daily in the Small World Kitchen on Nassau Street using freshly cracked whole spices, fresh organic ginger root, a small amount of honey, and a black tea from Rishi. Lots of love and care goes into this delicious recipe. We call it Tough Chai because of the spice factor;it is not a wimpy sweet Chai. A former worldling, John Ward, who now cooks for lucky people in Ithaca, NY, created our original Chai recipe.

Thanks Jess for sharing, the recipe sounds delicious and I think I am going to make some tonight! (more…)

Video: A Day at Small World Roasters

We were thrilled to host Sara Sadri – a local filmmaker who is also pursuing her postdoc at Princeton University – at Small World Roasters. “Small World Coffee,” she says, “was my first introduction to the town of Princeton. In fact, I think it is more like a landmark of Princeton.” While visiting our Rocky Hill Roasting Facility as part of our public Backstage Pass events, the scientist & filmmaker saw a cinematic opportunity. “I myself never thought about coffee beans as green fresh beans, and as a scientist, I found the process quite appealing and interesting.” (more…)

On the heels of another successful Love Show (our community art show), we are honored to be among several Princeton establishments featured in US1’s article about local exhibition opportunities for artists.

As Small World’s co-owner, Jessica, said to US1’s Dan Aubrey, “We have been exhibiting art once a month since the day we opened our doors in 1993.  From our inception, having a monthly rotating art show with primarily local artists was a part of our mission. Between our two cafes, we now have 24 art shows a year.

…One of my favorites is that it allows our space to reinvent itself once a month. Most cafes have regular customers who come in multiple times a week. In this process of regular visitation we get used to the environment. But on the first Wednesday of every month after the new art show has been hung, I notice myself, my employees, and our customers look up a little more and take in the new art.”

Thank you to the US1 staff for the great coverage! Read the full article here.
