Are you interested in eating more local food, but aren’t sure what to do with some of the less common vegetables you get through a CSA or at a farmer’s market? Or maybe you have the opposite problem, with way too much of a familiar vegetable than you know what to do with! If eating more local food is of interest, our new Cook Local, Eat Local podcast is for you!
Give our introductory episode a listen!
Cooking Chat is branching out and adding a podcast to the mix! On June 23, we will release the first three episodes of our Cook Local, Eat Local podcast. This weekly podcast will provide inspiration, tips and recipes for enjoying more local food and drink. Season 1 will follow me as I cook what rolls in through the local CSA farm share, with the help of various talented guests. You will also meet other great folks from creating delicious local focal food and drinks.
Cook Local, Eat Local will be a weekly podcast during Season 1, with new episodes generally airing on Thursdays. Every other week, a guest will join me to brainstorm what to make with that week’s CSA farm share produce. On the other weeks, I will have other guests talking about local food from a variety of perspectives.
This will be a fun way to get ideas for eating locally grown food, and learning about people that are producing local food and drinks.
The Cook Local podcast will be of particular interest to my fellow New Englanders, based on the seasonal produce we are featuring. In addition, some of the guests will be involved in our local food system. However, most of the tips and resources we discuss on the show will be of interest to anyone trying to eat more local food.
As I mentioned, we launched Cook Local, Eat Local on June 23! We posted 3 episodes that day. In addition to an introductory episode, Liz Thomson from I Heart Vegetables will be helped me think about what to do with my first CSA pickup. Listen to that podcast and check out the resources and recipes here.
We featured Marley Goldin from Marley’s Menu in an episode where she explains how eating local food contributes to sustainability, along with some practical tips.
The launch day episodes will be followed by a segment on “Celebrating the Fourth with Local Foods”, with Molly Madigan Pisula from Vanilla Bean Cuisine.
