Seasonal Cooking Kickoff Demonstration

I know that you're really looking forward to tomato season, but since it just stopped snowing, I'm awfully excited to have anything locally grown that's fresh and green and tasty.

In early June at our elevation that means loads of sweet spinach, Asian greens, and lettuces, plus early season herbs like chives and dill.

I was lucky to dodge thunderstorms to do the first 2009 market cooking demonstration with offerings generously provided by the vendors.

In case you missed it live, here's what I prepared (market items in bold):

*wilted spinach salad with bacon, blue cheese, pecans, apples and radish
*stir-fried bok choy with grass-fed bottom round beef and garlic, ginger hoisin sauce
*snap pea pasta with basil, chives and parmesan topped with herbed ricotta

The recipes will be posted as links on the blog soon. And check back for the list of all the upcoming farmer's market events planned for this season.
