The Age of Vegetables is Upon Us
Once upon a time, “Eat Your Vegetables” was a hopelessly square sentiment, an admonition uttered by moms and doctors to a reluctant audience. Most of us—children and adults equally—had to be urged to partake of artichokes, asparagus, beets, broccoli, eggplant, and their cousins. But those were the dark culinary ages, before our gastronomic enlightenment. Today, vegetables are appreciated across the land, feted by farmers, honored by home cooks, and celebrated by chefs. They are deliciously liquefied at juice bars and grilled, roasted, sautéed, and poached with the same love as fish and meats in our finest dining temples. And as more and more people understand that they keep girth and cholesterol in check, there’s an extra incentive to eat several servings each day.
The E8 Garden Deck commemorates the Age of the Vegetable, reminding everybody of their flavor, nutritional value, and natural beauty. Game on!

About The E8 Garden Deck
Creativity is a seed. Inspiration is the water that helps it grow. At least that’s how we think about it. Eight Communications is a garden of creativity and clean design, where our talents come together with our partners’ passions to help businesses thrive and flourish. We tend to all of our clients’ with the same painstaking attention as a gardener, staying out of the way when things are going right, and doing all we can to help when they’re not.
That point of view, and our teams’ devotion to good eating and healthful living, gave rise to our signature E8 Garden Deck playing cards. Their mission is simple: to raise awareness of the power of vegetables. Fortunately, we have some influential allies: Vegetables serve as the creative muse to today’s finest chefs, inviting them to apply their creative flair to nature’s own genius. To commemorate our E8 Garden Deck and help spread the gospel of the ground, we’ve enlisted some of the best chefs in New York City, all of whom have a way with vegetables, and asked them to share a recipe.
