I have been a sustainability professional for over 20 years and vegetable gardener for nearly as many. We rely on our garden to provide almost all our produce and what we don’t get from the garden we try to source from local farmers.
With children ranging from 3 years to 22 years old, I have a wide variety of taste buds to make happy. Cooking from the garden means needing to find variety in how we use whatever vegetable or fruit is in peak to keep my family interested and excited.
In this blog I will share with you the good stuff as well as the attempts that went awry – they are always an opportunity to learn and to laugh.
My 3 year old son has also now developed an interest in cooking. In addition to working with him on my recipes, I ordered Mollie Katzen’s (of Moosewood Restaurant fame) cookbook “Pretend Soup” – a cookbook geared to toddler cooks with adult assistants. I will chronicle his adventures in cooking as well.
