Next time you're at the supermarket or your local co-op, open up a copy of the August/September Fine Cooking. I was asked to write the "Ask the Expert" column about local eating this issue. In conjunction with the article, I'll be hosting a web forum on their site for two weeks starting August 11 in which readers can ask questions about eating locally.
Being able to pen a column was really fun, and the response so far has been exciting.
A couple of other quick things while I have your attention:
I will be interviewing Ed George of the Peach Farm tomorrow at the Ferry Plaza Farmers' Market. The event takes place at 10.30 a.m. in the North Arcade and lasts 30 minutes. I'd love to see you.
Also, on Monday, August 4, I will be interviewing Jesse Cool, author of Simply Organic and restaurateur, for the Commonwealth Club. Jesse is the force behind Cool Cafe, Flea Street CAfe, jZcool Eater, and CoolEatz Catering. The interview is for the Commonwealth Club, and the event will take place at the Cubberley Center in Palo Alto. The event is at 7.00 pm and tickets can be purchased through the Commonwealth Club website. It would be such a treat to see some friendly faces in Palo Alto!
Have a great weekend, everyone. May it be filled with heirloom tomato salads, juicy peaches, and sweet corn on the cob!
