A Community Celebration of Seasonal Food
What it’s all about: Ever noticed how a tomato doesn’t taste as good in January as it does in August? Do you crave watermelon in the heat of summer, but not in the dead of winter? Then you’ve had a taste of what it means to eat seasonally.
Join me and the community of neighbors, gardeners and volunteers from Gabriel’s Place in a celebration of seasonal food. We’ll talk about the pleasures of eating seasonally, about what’s in season now (and what’s to come through the summer growing season). We’ll talk about two of spring’s best food gifts: lettuce and asparagus. I’ll be demonstrating how to choose and prepare asparagus, and guests will have a chance to sample several asparagus dishes and to taste different kinds of spring lettuce.
