"The Fabulous Farmers Market"

Heart Healthy Farmers Market
 
 
 
My Farmers Market Tip of The Day
 
============
 
Collards
Savory Cabbage
Broccoli Rabe
Bok Choy
Carrots
Leeks
Parsley
 
 
As you all may know, my name is Chef Steph G., I'm a self trained chef & owner of "Twice The Spice Caterers" I was practically raised, shopping @ the Farmers Market... The first one was 9th St, we call it, in South Philly or The Italian Market... That was over 30 yrs ago, I think I'll stop there, lol...
 
Today I'm in love with Farmers Markets, especially the ones that sell  everything from, produce, to spices, seafood, meat, breads, cheese, preserves, fresh made juice, prepared foods & even hand made scented candles and soaps.

Take Out Food "U" Can Make @ Home

Ethnic Cuisine from around the world including my favorite Veggie Egg Fu Yung w/ Red Thai RiceOne of my favorite's
    "Egg Foo Young"
I love egg foo young, but I rarely eat it because of certain ingredients that are used to enhance the flavor, like MSG (monosodium glutamate) which has been controversial for a long time know and has been added to oriental cuisine in just about every Oriental Take Out Restaurant in the US. So I choose to not eat it, since some people have had bad reactions, after eating high doses in their food.
 
So what do you do about it? You learn to cook it.

"Romance on a Plate"

Wedding Entree Chilaen Sea BassChilean Sea Bass
 
 
Chilean Sea Bass is my favorite fish.  I called it the jewel of the sea. The buttery taste & the meaty flaky texture makes this my all time favorite.  Don't  get it twisted, it's a pricey cut  of fish, but you won't regret it.  So when your ready to splurge, add a nice chunk of Chilean Sea Bass to you next gourmet treat.  Seasonal price flucuates between $20 & $28 per lb
I paid $25 per lb this month

Tasty Treat / Poached Drunken Pears over Fresh Churned Ice Cream
Spring Time has arrived. What would be more rewarding than a refreshing dessert to ring in the spring. With temperatures in the 70's  around  the tri-state area, ice cream is a tasty treat.
