Sweet Potato Soda

When you're asked to prepare a presentation on healthy, fizzy fermented beverages to an audience of people who care passionately about growing and eating local food, and it's February (February!) what are you to do? Seizing my courage last week, I took a look around the Produce department and freezer coolers and came up with a few ideas for my workshop at the NOFA Winter Conference - including sweet potato soda.

Scenes from Eat Local Week

Eat Local Week is our chance to celebrate the local food and local farms that are such an important part of our community.

Just as there are a diversity of farms in our area that enrich our community in myriad ways, we celebrated Eat Local Week this year with a number of different events. Here are some snapshots of the week.

Individually we make choices - meal by meal, day by day, season by season - to eat local food and support local farms.

And the Winner Is.....

Chewy Maple Cookies. Mmmmm.

Congratulations to Jamie Seiffer, localvore baker extraordinaire and winner of the 2011 We ♥ Local Food dessert recipe competition. Jamie stole the hearts and tastebuds of the sampling crowd at this Saturday’s winter farmers’ market with his Chewy Maple Cookies.

Sweet Rutabaga Cake

I baked up some rutabaga oven fries last week. Once thoroughly roasted, I find rutabaga irresistible – the root vegetable is so unbelievably sweet.
