Monday Veggietrivia

Not much cooking last week, as I'm just back from a trip to New Mexico for some dear friends' wedding.

Jack and I did work in a field trip to the Santa Fe Farmers Market, an indoor-spilling-outdoors spectacle of produce, plants, breads, cheeses, yarns, yak meat, belly dancing, and absurdly many free samples. Among other things, we brought home some red chile ginger jam and green chile mustard.

(It's the kind of thing that makes you want to support an indoor year-round public market in Boston.)

A little other veggietrivia ...

Further to supporting Massachusetts farmers' markets, the third annual Strawberry Dessert Festival runs from June 11 through July 4. Order a special strawberry dessert at a participating restaurant or Whole Foods and benefit the Federation of Mass Farmers Markets. (Via Public Radio Kitchen, which also has additional info on Massachusetts strawberries.)

And! The movie Fresh is screening at the Brattle Theatre from June 18 to June 23, with associated events and restaurant dinners:
Fresh celebrates the farmers, thinkers and business people across America who are re-inventing our food system. Each has witnessed the rapid transformation of our agriculture into an industrial model, and confronted the consequences: food contamination, environmental pollution, depletion of natural resources, and morbid obesity. Forging healthier, sustainable alternatives, they offer a practical vision for a future of our food and our planet.
