This is why I cook.

11 Jul

Look at all this food that is available!!

I had to get this list out here.  Take a look at all the food that is available locally right now.  This is a list that comes from one of my farmers.  They have reached out to some of the neighboring farms and they are able to have one list, and one delivery.  This is how it works.   Now multiply that by about three other farmers like this and I have access to over 50 farms and the list is growing every month.

This kitchen is doing a lot of cooking these days.  Confit, freezing, picklling, preserving, etc., getting ready for the winter already, but this is a great way to spend the day.  This is also how you do it.  In the next could of months keep looking here for some news about how you can learn, participate, and reep the benefits.  There are some things in the works here, and with some really good friends.  We are going to make this fall and this winter better than ever for local food and we want you to help us as well as learn with us how to eat locally year round.
