One of my favorite parts of traveling is the chance to wander my way through farmers markets in all parts of the world. No matter where the market is, I always like to talk with the local farmers.
I’ve always associated radicchio with cold winter months, but for the first time, I’ve managed to successfully grow summer radicchio.
I’m quite happy with my plump and juicy garden strawberries. Here’s a round up of some of my favorite ways to enjoying these summertime gems.
I’ve made cherry clafouti before, but this was by the far the easiest recipe I’ve tried (and it was very forgiving with my limited pantry situation).
Strawberries with sour cream and brown sugar is a second-generation dessert close to my heart.
Savory tarts are often overlooked, and it’s a shame because they are such delicious showcases for fresh produce.
I couldn’t resist these baby artichokes at the farmers market last week. It was my first batch of the season. These petite flowers with purple ruffled leaves were not only stunning, but delicious.
I ended up at the Ferry Building only to discover a wonderful farmers market. Just a few stalls, but quality stalls filled to the rim with unique, interesting and beautiful products.
This salad was a delicious eye opener into the raw food world. It is totally satisfying and would work great for a group because it’s raw and it holds up for a while without wilting.
The other day I decided to be a little creative with the leftover watermelon for a nice lunch with friends. This recipe turns some pretty basic ingredients into a beautifully composed and enticingly delicious course.
