Summer School.


ALERT: The weather is calling for EXTREME HEAT THIS WEEKEND. (110 degrees, people!) Please make every effort (if you are not home) to leave a cooler, with ice for your shares. We hand pick this food with love and want to make sure it arrives to you in top quality.

Back to your regularly scheduled food love:

One of the greatest parts of this job is getting to spend time on farms, which we do every week. We do it because dirt is fun, pigs are cute and being outside watching the best food in New England be planted, grown and harvested is a singular joy. We do it because we want to know exactly what is coming to you every week, to taste the quality and be picky about what you receive.

We tour the vegetable gardens, dairies, animal fields and bakeries to make sure the best of what New England has to offer is coming to your door. 

As you roam through the grocery stores you will see the words: "local", "farm" and "nature" splashed across all sorts of items. Some of it is genuine, much of it is marketing. A day at Clark Farm (pictured), Brookford Farm, Feather Brook Farm or Busa Farm in Lexington will show you exactly what the genuine article is. And it's delicious.

RECIPES

Classic BLT: Ah, this classically awesome sandwich. After scouring the Internet, I discovered that no one has the secret ingredient; a Perfect English Muffin. Behold the BLToVEM (the Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato On Vinal English Muffin. YOU ARE WELCOME.

Bacon Polenta: Is it breakfast, is it Dinner- does anyone actually care? Bacon, a runny egg and a bowl of cheesy polenta. Just perfect.

Yogurt Dressing: For summer salads or veggies this is a perfect dressing. This one includes basil for a bright green color and taste. You can also take a pass on the basil or herbs and go Old School plain. Still a delight.

Fennel All Dressed Up: I was going to suggest a pickled fennel here but this Gochujang recipe felt too good not to include. Fuego!

Fennel Salad:  Shaved Fennel and herbs is where it is at. I am going to sub in basil and may add some capers and olives for extra brine.
