The EatWell Project: A Year of Seasonal Cooking

Thursday, February 12, 2009

My 2009 New Year's Resolution was to eat more locally and seasonally. Even though that's a much easier and more pleasurable thing to do here in Berkeley than it is in most of the country, it still takes some extra thought and effort.

To help us stay "on the farm wagon," so to speak, my husband and I signed up for
EatWell Farm's CSA program through which we receive a large box of fresh, locally-grown, organic produce every two weeks. I will post a new recipe using one or more ingredients from our produce box each week in the hopes that this will help others cook more seasonally and locally. Enjoy!
