It's Salad Season! [Recipe]

It's Salad Season! [Recipe]

Nothing teaches you how to cook better than using someone else's kitchen! Some of my best recipes come from making the shift lunch here at Small World including this Lemon Garlic recipe.

1 tsp Small World Fermented Garlic Paste
1 tsp lemon simple syrup
1 1/2 tsp Small World Sweet White Miso
1 1/2 tsp tamari
2 tsp vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil

Mix together and adjust to taste. Shake well before use and drizzle over a bed of salad greens from Andy's Specialty Garlic & Produce and pea shoots from Squash Blossom farm. Top with carrots from Mud Creek Farm.

Made from carrots from Mud Creek Farm and ginger from The Good Life Farm, this tangy ferment should be ready for eating in just a few weeks.




Lunch Time

Lunch Time

When you're baking in the kitchen all day, surrounded by delicious food, its hard not to think about what to have for lunch. Today's lunch was a pretty exceptional example of some of the awesome food that gets cooked up during the course of a day. Brent fried up some eggs with a little pepper, Allie threw together a one pot dish consisting of green beans, purple onion, roasted red pepper, kidney beans, and a ton of seasonings, and Luke cooked up some local pork sausage (not pictured, sorry folks, my lunch was vegetarian today). We even taste tested an in-process batch of 'kraut, and its awesome, so that's something you'll have to look forwards to at the market soon. Just looking at this picture, I wish I could eat it all over again. There's nothing like good food and good company in the midst of long day of baking.
