NEW THIS YEAR:
We have asked local chef and devoted market shopper Paige Vandegrift to develop recipes using the beautiful produce that will be on offer all season long at the BFM. Chef Paige is a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu in London and has worked locally at The American Restaurant, The Pastry Goddess, The Culinary Center of Kansas City and currently at her own private chef service Simple – Food and Chef Shop Baking. Paige is also a cooking teacher (at various local venues) and food blogger. Paige’s blog,For Love of the Table, was a natural outgrowth of her passion for teaching and helping people to cook beautiful and delicious food from fresh, seasonal ingredients in their own kitchens, for their own tables. The recipes she will be developing for the Brookside Market will be posted on her blog and linked to here in the market report.”
Recipe for this week:
We are in the height of eggplant season so this week Market Chef Paige Vandegrift is featuring eggplant in a tart (with onions, bell peppers and summer squash) and in a gratin with swiss chard (for those who want to try eggplant in a creamy custard, but don’t really want to make pie dough…)
You will find the link to the recipes on the Brookside Market Page of Chef Paige’s blog For Love of the Table . Be sure to bookmark that page so you can stay on top of her latest posts featuring Brookside Farmers’ Market produce….and take a look at the recipes page while you’re there–or browse by ingredient–for all kinds of ideas for cooking with fresh seasonal produce.
