From the Farmer’s Table- Recipes by Katie Malich

From the Farmer’s Table- Recipes by Katie Malich

Chinese vegetarian cooking need not be daunting. I spent about 10 minutes preparing a shredded three taste salad without a mandoline, and had a delicious mushroom dish finished about under 25 minutes. Sure, some of the vegetables might be unfamiliar, but don't let that stop you from experimenting. I've received great advice about cooking unfamiliar vegetables from the vendors and other [...]

I enjoyed strolling along Main Street's Farmers Market last Tuesday at 5 p.m. The lengthening daylight allowed me appreciate the true colors of the purple and green cauliflower on display on the table in front of the Underwood Family Farms stand. Colored variants of the more common white variety, these cultivars taste similar to the more familiar variety, but add stunning color to an antipasto [...]

I couldn't resist buying one of the beautiful heads of savoy cabbage at the Findley Farms stand at the Tuesday Culver City Farmers Market. The thin, crinkly leaves have an elegant, fetching beauty which is matched by their sweet and tender taste. While the pliability of its leaves makes the savoy cabbage ideal for stuffing, I wasn't in the mood for something that heavy. Instead, I chose to [...]

I've been enjoying wonderful cheese all week thanks to the merchants at the Tuesday afternoon Culver City Farmers Market. Soledad Goats is one of our newest vendors. You can't miss their goldenrod and purple banner proclaiming “Award Winning Goat Cheese” from Mojave, California. When you stop at the booth, you'll be greeted by owners Carol and Julian Pearce. The Pearces learned the ins [...]

Where were you at 1:11 p.m. on 1/1/11? I was watching the reruns of the Rose Parade with friends. My health-conscious hostess' spread was just the thing for those with New Years diet and health resolutions. There was narry a chip or a dip in the entire house. Instead, those of us enjoying the cavalcade of color and marching band music of the 122nd annual Rose Parade were treated to hot, [...]

Gardening Club to Meet- Jan 4

Did you know that this is a good time to propagate agaves by digging up the offsets, let base dry and then replant? How about adding aluminum sulfate around the soil to keep your hydrangeas blue? Ready to dig up dahlias, trim off remaining the foliage, brush off soil and allow bulbs to dry out in sun? You can hear all kind of great gardening advice when you come to the next meeting of the [...]

Who has not stayed up late on New Year's Eve to count down to midnight and the ringing in of the new year? Whether you choose party in style or cocoon at home with the TV turned to the Times Square traditional big ball drop, I'm sure you've already made plans for how you will celebrate December 31st. Perhaps you plan to see the New Year in with thousands of others in sleeping bags and folding [...]
