Panzanella Salad with Fresh Summer Tomatoes and Basil

It’s tomato season! And it’s garlic season. And basil, and, well, everything good basically. Panzanella salad is the ultimate way to combine the best summer ingredients. Panzanella, or panmolle, is a salad originating from Tuscany that has a base of bread and tomatoes. Other cultures have a similar salad, like the Mediterranean dish fattoush, that build a base from…

Asparagus and Potato Flatbread

Two months ago, I traveled up to Southwest Harbor, Maine to film a vendor to be featured in a new The Clean Food Club video (video drops in a couple weeks!). I had never visited that part of Maine before so I did some exploring. I stayed at the Aysgarth Station, which prepared a beautiful…

Raw, vegan and gluten-free: Nüssli 118°

When the last shoppers leave from the Wayland Winter Farmers Market, the place turns into a bartering free for all. Vendors wander over to each other’s booths and shop the wares.

Strawberry Ice Cream (and other summertime recipes)

For the last couple of months, Stearns Farm CSA includes fresh flowers every week, so I’ve been cutting 25 blooms every other week to take home. They’re included in my share so I don’t have to…

Community Supported Agriculture

I just picked up my first CSA share of produce from Stearns Farm in Framingham, MA, and I’m trying not to panic. Four heads of lettuce, spinach, cabbage, bok choy, scallions, garlic scapes: This is exactly what I got last week at the market. I had bought a similar basketful from the Natick Farmers Market,…

The Local Mix at Area Four

I first heard about Area Four while attending a #BostonTalks Happy Hour at WBGH last month. They make a fantastic pizza using twelve-year-old starter dough, fermented for over 30 hours, and handcrafted in their scratch kitchen. When I heard that A4 sources most of their ingredients locally, I immediately set a date to visit their…
