Farm-to-Table Pop-up for Edible Monterey Bay

I just found out that I have the assignment to cover Edible Monterey Bay's Pop-Up Breakfast at the Westside Santa Cruz Farmers Market on Saturday, August 25th.

This event (check out the preview written by Amber Turpin) is a joint effort between the Santa Cruz Community Farmers' Markets and Chef Koebel's organization Local FATT (Food Awareness Through Teaching).

Yippee! I love getting to go somewhere, eat, learn, and then go home to write about the experience for other local foodies. Best. Work. Ever.

Salty-Caramel Sticky Buns with house-made raw honey butter, created in part by Companion Bakeshop; House Ground Fennel-Molasses Sausage with a little bit of El Salchichero’s magic behind it; pizza topped with the fennel sausage, Harley Farms chevre and wilted greens, then wood fire-baked and served with scrambled eggs. Local salmon, bacon, more eggs and seasonal fruit will also share the limelight. And we all sit, family-style at long tables, using our own plates and utensils to minimize waste. Love it!

If you want to join the fun, go to the Edible Monterey Bay website and look at 'Edible Events' on the left-hand side of the page.

And for information about a series of events at the Downtown Santa Cruz Community Farmers' Market called the Santa Cruz’ FoodShed Project, check out the post I wrote - Peach Party -  about their August event. There are three more in the series!

There are lots of great happenings in the foodie world on that side of the Monterey Bay. I am so excited to be a part of it.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
