I just can't wait...
I just can't wait for the farmers markets to open. One of my favorite things in the world to do is get to market early morning to pickup all the goodies I order from local farms to prepare for you. Once I have loaded the car I take another round and look for ideas for the following weeks menu.
I have gotten to know many of the farm owners and folks who run the farm stands. Though it is a bit early for all the usual stands to be at the market some have products all winter long.
One of the farms that I love to get goodies from is VA Mushroom Farm. The young couple who run this farm, not only produce beautiful mushrooms, they package amazing dried mushrooms, and spices.
Another favorite is Powers Farm and Brew. Their produce is some of most beautiful veg one can find locally, and they brew amazing beer!!! Husband and I try to pick up our produce from them late Sunday afternoons so that we also can try the latest flavor of the beer they brew:) benefits of the job! This weeks menu is inspired by these 2 fabulous young farmers, and entrepreneurs.
We are looking forward to cooking this weeks menu for you; and hope that you will be enjoying it as much as we will be preparing it.
From everyone at Ezie and Emil... It's All about food!
