Rosie WitherspoonRosie Witherspoon from the At Home Store joined me Tuesday night at Green Building Supply for our montly GREAT TASTE LIVE show.  We talked and cooked together, and Tom Allen surprised us by dropping by, joining in on the fun, and singing a song about the Boston Tea Party.

We built the show around a few critical utensils that will help you cook more effectively and easily.   We featured silicone spatulas from GIR, Gefu's spiralizer, cheese grater, and mandoline, plus a cool jar lid that makes pickling in small batches a breeze.

Tom AllenTom, who is living in Flint, Michigan, presented a different perspective on that city.  Most of us are only familiar with the horrific water problems and corresponding health issues residents have been dealing with, but Tom filled us in on some of the energy going into providing healthy food through cultivating empty lots provided by the city and other initiatives.

On the menu, if you missed it, we had watermelon, feta, and fresh mint salad, an Asian salad with buttercrunch lettuce, zucchni, and yellow squash, parmesan crisps, and strawberries with balsamic vinegar.  

Save the Date for the next live show-Tuesday, August 2 with Jake Gratzon of Old Capitol Food Company.

If you didn't attend the LIVE show, you can watch the video (available a few days later) at Fairfield Media Center's site HERE, or listen to the broadcast on KRUU on Wednesday at 7:00 pm or Friday at 7:00 am.

A BIG "THANKS" TO OUR UNDERWRITERS-GREEN BUILDING SUPPLY AND EVERYBODY'S WHOLE FOODS.  More "thanks" to Jason Strong of Fairfield Media Center, and, of course, James Moore and the crew at KRUU.
