GREAT TASTE IS FARM FRESH THIS WEEK!!!!!!!

GREAT TASTE AUGUST 1

One of the dishes I really wanted to make Tuesday night at the LIVE show at GBS was a miso butter skillet corn.  Luckily, the sweet corn was ready at the MUM student farm, and it was delicious.  All you need to do is strip the kernals off the cob, put them in a skillet with a little water, and cook for 2-4 minutes to your kernal texture preference.  Drain the remaining water, stir in the miso butter, and enjoy.  The recipe for the miso butter is at the end of this post.

Kris Johnson, the farm manager, Dan Harvey, the assistant manager, and several of the students in the Regenerative Agriculture certificate program, joined us for an inspiring discussion about the future of food and farming.  Look for the farm's stand at the Saturday Farmer's Market.

 

Carrot Soup

Kathy DuBois, GT's former co-host, assumed command in the GBS kitchen during Tuesday evening's LIVE Great Taste show.  On last week's Great Taste I spoke with Deborah Madison, and on the LIVE show Kathy, along with her assistant Christi Welsh, used recipes from several of Deborah's books to make carrot soup with spicy butter, baked ricotta, zucchini with mint and other herbs, and a roasted beet salad.  Many of the ingredients were picked or dug from the Sustainable Living Department's student garden within a few hours of showtime.

Food and Classic Movies and Supporting Local Eats!

Movie Night MenusThis week's show starts with a discussion featuring two of my favorite topics-menus and movies.  Tenaya Darlington and her brother Andre have paired classic movies with great eats in a book that is fun on many levels.  

Whether you need a quiet night to kick back with a friend or two or want to throw a party, Movie Night Menus is chock full of terrific food options that fit perfectly with some of the best flicks ever made.

The book is "...organized chronilogically, so you can eat and drink your way through American cinema," writes Tenaya.  I think she and I are going to get along just fine so tune in for our conversation.

Check out their new website HERE for recipes, tips on entertaining, and I'll bet plenty of great cheese recommendations.
