(Here is a message from Joanna, owner of AXE.)

Dear AXE friends,I am happy to announce I’ll be heading back to LA for a second pop-up at TORTOISE.  Taku and Keiko have invited me to set up in their new shop/studio on Venice Blvd.  The original TORTOISE location (which still exists) was a longtime neighbor and friend to AXE restaurant on Abbot Kinney.  I have hopes that this could become a tradition!

Please come to say hello, stock up on pancake batter and visit the new TORTOISE shop.  I would love to see you!

The AXE pancake batter is lovingly made with Northern California nutritious and delicious Jersey milk from St. Benoit, eggs from Farmer Joy’s flock in Petaluma and Yecora Rojo stoneground flour from Central Milling.  Ingredients are free of pesticides, herbicides, chemical fertilizers, or growth hormones.

The one quart container is sold frozen (which keeps well for many months) and costs $20.
