Farmers Market Series Part Two: Boston Public Market Pop-ups

The Boston Public Market, the largest indoor, year-round farmers market in Boston, opened two new seasonal locations over the last month: one in the Seaport District and one in Dewey Square. The BPM sources exclusively local produce, meat and goods from small businesses around New England, focusing on helping our local communities and economy. The small…

A cup of mushroom tea with Liat Racin, founder of Tamim Teas

A bite of ginger, a little nuttiness from the turmeric, and a deep earthiness. That must be the taste of the mushrooms… or maybe that’s still the turmeric. The hot cup of Lion’s Share mushroom tea steams, and makes the room smell of ginger. In Liat Racin’s kitchen in Somerville, the shelves are lined with…

Grilled Haddock with Rhubarb Tomato Salsa

Rhubarb and zucchini are in season! Pleasantly surprised at the Natick Farmers Market yesterday, I bought some of each, and then I sat for 20 minutes trying to think of how to use them both. Rhubarb is usually used in sweet dishes, but it has a nice, naturally tart flavor. I really wanted to spend the…

Open-faced Egg Sandwich with Spring Greens

Spring is finally here! This past weekend, temperatures were in the 70s in Boston. Lawns are looking green and flowers are blooming all over the place. After months of heavy hashes and root vegetables, I wanted to make a light, spring brunch to eat outside in the great weather. These open-faced sandwiches are simple and…

Inside the Discovery Portal

National New England Clam Chowder Day

It’s National New England Clam Chowder Day, and I could think of no way better to celebrate than to buy a cup of my favorite soup from one of Boston’s finest seafood vendors: Red’s Best. My husband and I swung by the Red’s booth at the Boston Public Market and bought one tuna poke bowl…

Sea-to-KITCHEN: A Seafood Feast with Red’s Best

Red’s Best and The Trustees celebrated National Seafood Month on Friday by cooking a completely seasonal and locally-caught seafood dinner in The KITCHEN at the Boston Public Market. “It takes a community to feed a community,” said Valerie Rosenberg, Director of Retail and Marketing at Red’s. They only buy from local, community-based boats, supporting the fishermen in…

perfectly free, perfect for summer

As soon as the doors opened to the Yawkey Auditorium at WGBH, dozens of Edible Science attendees flocked to the tables inside and lined up for their free samples. At the Edible Science event, speakers talked about the science behind food, and encouraged Bostonians to discover the new food and beverage companies all around them…

Grilled Bok Choy, Teriyaki Chicken and Fried Rice

Whenever I get bok choy in my CSA share, I immediately think of making Chinese food. I tried grilling the bok choy this time (I usually sauté the leaves), and it was so good. This week was the first pickup of the Stearns Farm CSA, and we received two heads of bok choy, one bunch each…
