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.
RECIPES FOR THE WEEK OF June 24
This week’s recipe from Market Chef Paige Vandegrift is for Buttered Cabbage with Peas, Prosciutto & Herbs. If you have never had summer cabbage cooked simply with a bit of butter…or if you think cabbage is only for Cole slaw….you are in for a treat. Paige has also included a bonus recipe in her post from Yotam Ottolenghi for a cabbage salad with kohlrabi (another item that grows well in the Midwest and for which interesting recipes are rare).
You will find the link to the recipe 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.
