Hahvahd Yahd.

 

 

This weekend we are honored to be involved in the Let's Talk About Food event at Harvard University.

This all-day, FREE event features local chefs, food entrepreneurs and experts. There are presentations, demonstration and plenty of fun things to do. 

The mission of the event sounds exactly like ours at Family Dinner:

"We start at the beginning of where and who grows our food, who brings it from the oceans, coaxes it from the soil, who works with our food in industrial kitchens and labs, in large greenhouses and in small craft cellars, etc.

We care about the supply chain of how food gets from here to there, and how much of it gets left behind. We care about food waste, we care about food insecurity and justice. We care about how many miles food travels to get to us. We care about humanity."

That sounds so much like the working goals of Family Dinner, just more eloquent. (Which leads me to wonder: is plagiarism actually illegal? Could I just borrow their text?)

So come on down, and pahk your Prius in Hahvahd Yahd.

We go on at 1pm at the "Endless Table" - we would love to see you there!

RECIPES

Hello, cabbage!

Here are a few ideas on how to approach this Sassy Brassica:

Cabbage and Pear Slaw: Tangy, delightful side dish. 

Chicken and Cabbage:  The folks at Epicurious use a whole bird, we are going half. They are also grabbing some bacon and WHO CAN BLAME THEM. It's not necessary but that additional fat is nice. ( Why does no one ever say that about me?)

Grilled Cabbage "Steaks": Not sure I love the use of the word "steak" here but I am way into this take on a wedge salad that's all grilled up and yummy.

Honey! We got this amazing honey from Shannon at Blossom Brook Farm. It's time to glaze things, people! I am thinking baked honey pears, a last minute glaze on your baked chicken and maybe some delicious Hot Toddy with bourbon and a touch of honey as the temperatures drop. 

Eggplant: We posted a photo of the eggplants from Busa Farm on our Instagram (@sharefamilydinner) and people shared some great recipe ideas! We especially love the chorizo stuffed eggplant with tomatoes and feta. You can riff on this all day, eliminating the cheese, or switching it to a mozz. You can drop the meat and add lentils, tofu of quinoa.
