Yummy New Things...
Loving what you do for a living is such a blessing! Going to farms and farmers markets, searching for the ingredient and trying new things is super fun. Though I try not to introduce too many new (new to me, and perhaps you as well) ingredients on the menu all the time, when I see or try items that I know have health benefits, I feel obligated to share. Good example of this is last week's Potatoes with Black Garlic. Knowing potatoes are a favorite of most of you, I figured adding black garlic which has wonderful health benefits will encourage you to try it.
On this week's menu, Togarashi is being used in the chicken dish. Togarashi is a spice mix that was invented by a Japanese herbal medicine expert and has been used for its health benefits since the 17th century.
Anyway I guess what I am trying to say is that I am always looking for more yummy ingredients that have health benefits to add to the list of ingredients I use in my cooking. I am super grateful that you all continuously enjoy this venture with me. We hope you will enjoy this week's meals as much we enjoy, hunting, gathering, and preparing them for you!
