You have no idea how thankful I am to see blue sky outside my window this morning. On Sunday I was beginning to think that there was a cosmic misunderstanding about the concept of “spring.” No, “spring” does NOT mean “spring a gigantic leak in the heavens above.” It means the wonderful, hopeful, joyous season between winter and summer. A time of new growth and renewal. A time [...]

St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner. True, you might have to look elsewhere if you're craving green beer to go with your corned beef and cabbage, but the freshly picked organic cabbage available at several Tuesday afternoon Culver City Farmers Market is the perfect sweet companion to the hearty, salty meat in this traditional St. Patrick's Day meal. Believe it or not, neither corned [...]

Earthquake: Are You Ready?

Earthquake: Are You Ready?

Our prayers and thoughts go out to those devastated in Japan. Earthquakes are all on our mind at the moment. We can not forget that we here in California are also in a major Earthquake zone. The question is…. Are you prepared for a quake that might happen here? Every person and family should have an earthquake plan and supplies to deal with the aftermath of the quake.  Planning can [...]

Today is not just an ordinary Tuesday in many parts of the world. As any party-goer in New Orleans or Rio de Janiero can tell you, today is Fat Tuesday, or Mardi Gras: a day of feasting and, in cities like Rio and New Orleans, carnivals, parades and partying before the start of Lent on Ash Wednesday. The traditional observation of Lent, the 40 period in many Christian liturgical calendars [...]

Ginormous. Absolutely ginormous. Ginormously ginormous. That's all I could think as I gazed lovingly and hungrily at the displays of jumbo fresh-picked Globe artichokes at the Tuesday Culver City Farmer's Market. At $4 a head, I could make an entire meal or a generous party appetizer out of one of these ginormous artichokes. A true confession: I am one of those people who will drive out [...]

All I could think of as I inched my way forward on rain-drenched freeways last Friday night was warming myself with a steaming bowl of hot soup or stew, cradling the bowl in my ice-cold fingers and letting the rising steam heat my face. I finally pulled over to wait out the worst of the storm impeded rush hour with another, very Southern California comfort-food: an In-n-Out burger. Since [...]

Great news for slow starters ! The Saturday morning Culver South Certified Farmers Market now has extended hours. The new hours are from 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., which is wonderful news for those of us – like yours truly – who enjoy sleeping in on Saturday mornings. Indeed, if you are truly a lark in the morning, best to enjoy that second cup of java or organic, fair trade herbal tea at home [...]

With Presidents Day weekend coming up, I've been wondering what George Washington, colonial farmer turned president of this country, would think of the Culver City Farmers Market. Avocados, bok choy, cilantro, darcy tangerines, elephant garlic … there's a veritable alphabet soup of fruits and vegetables for sale at the Main Street and Culver South markets our Founding Fathers never dreamed [...]

Farmer’s Table- Recipes from Katie Malich

Farmer’s Table- Recipes from Katie Malich

George Washington's birthday is February 22. I'm all in favor of celebrating with a yummy cherry pie, but I didn't put any cherries up during cherry season. It wouldn't be authentic or sustainable if I used frozen or imported cherries. And even though cherry pie is delicious, the story of young George cutting down a cherry tree is mythology.  Best to go back to the drawing board. We don't [...]

Last week, in honor of the Asian New Year, I loaded up an entire cloth shopping bag with fresh oriental vegetables. My first stop was the Muoa family stand at the north-west corner of Main Street and Venice Blvd. The two young brothers were very helpful, explaining the taste of their more exotic varieties, and providing cooking advice. The family is Hmong, and carry a wide variety of asian [...]
