New Vendor at the Market

There is a new vendor at the Market selling Asian and traditional vegetables.

This is the type of vendor that the Market needs for the future. A true grower that brings a product that is a bit different. I have purchased several items from them and have been happy with all. I encourage you to visit their stall and experiment with a few different vegetables.

I will post what I have purchased and how I prepared it in future posts. Until then, just ask them. They have more experience preparing Asian veggies than I do.

New Potatoes at the Market

The new potatoes for this season have appeared at the Market. I really like these in potato salad.

Here is a link to a good recipe for potato salad and some theory behind the recipe. The only change I made was substituting new red potatoes, unpeeled, for the recommended peeled russet potatoes. I also think substituting a small amount of pickled jalapeno peppers for some of the cornichons would be interesting.
