Heartland and Coast: A Delightful Pairing on GREAT TASTE!

Mendocino Coast

Garlicpalooza returns to the Fairfield Farmer's Market, Saturday, September 3 as the focal point for the annual Hometown Harvest fundraiser. Tanya Webster, the event coordinator, and Kim Keller from Hometown Harvest are our in-studio guests for the first half hour.

Some of the dishes you might experience at Garlicpalooza (made almost entirely with local produce) feature garlic from roasted to raw on bruschetta, and in a marinara sauce.  Kathy and I are making a gazpacho with an infused garlic/mint olive oil plus look for salsa, a garlic potato soup and much more. Plus, there will be lots of speakers so don't miss it.

Kacie with Sea Palm

We move to the West Coast for the second half of the hour to visit with Kacie Loparto, the energy behind She Sells Seaweed.  Kacie recently moved from harvesting seaweed on the coast of Maine to Mendocino where she's learning about new varieties of the vitamin-rich plants.  What she said about her current swimming hole resonated with me:

"Each time I move to a new place it is song and work that make me feel at home. There are a few women that help us dry our seaweed who also love to sing. You’ll be happy to know that your seaweed is serenaded as it is thoroughly inspected and hung to dry."

 

Fresh Sweet Corn

Summer's First Vine Ripened Tomatoes

Beans, Squash, Potatoes

It's All Coming On Strong Now!

We're visiting with local producers of the freshest, best tastiing food around.

Tune in Wednesday 7-8 pm and Friday 7-8 am (replay)


It's GREAT TASTE!
