february 22 weekly menu | winter table

Farm Fresh

beets, carrots, kale, leeks, mushrooms, mustard greens, parsnips, potatoes

What’s for Dinner?

I hope many of you discovered the new-this-season winter farmers market downtown at Shemanski Park.  It was truly a sight for the eyes, and a feast for the nose and stomach, with a very different vibe than the sprawling buzz of the full action summer market.  I trust it will become a mainstay of our Portland winters.  The PFM blog this week gives ingenious suggestions for this time of year, whether you’re a die-hard cook, or prefer the pre-prepared route. And speaking of cooking, An Evening With Michael Pollan is coming to the Newmark in May.  Powell’s Books, in conjunction with OPB, is hosting this event which is sure to be an engaging look into the question of why cooking matters.  I hope something in this week’s menu appeals to you enough to give cooking a shot – you really can’t go wrong with local bounty like this!  Thank you Hood River Organic!
