Sound Bites

Listen to my AM950 radio interview!! Part 4 of Aug 15th “Fresh & Local” broadcast @ http://www.mplsfarmersmarket.com/broadcast.php   It sounds a lot better than I thought it would, whew.

Also, check out my NEW, beautiful photos of cooking “coaching” sessions (see Flickr stream on the right for more). In the photo below is an array of legumes and whole grains that are the basis of a heart-healthy diet.

Thank you to all my wonderful client models and ace photographer Brad Dahlgaard!

** NOTE: last Sunday’s market appearances were cancelled due to the imminent threat of thunderstorms — which, naturally, then did not materialize.  Typical schizo Minnesota weather! Therefore, Raw Zucchini Linguine is the star for this coming Sunday, Aug 22nd.


New gorgeous photos

Please surf a bit to enjoy Brad Dahlgaard’s marvelous, mouthwatering photos that I have posted on most every page and inserted into a couple older posts!  I am very lucky to be friends with such a talented man.

Photo shoot last night

My multi-talented artist friend Brad Dahlgaard came over last night to photograph a meal I prepared. Soon, you will see these mouthwatering images on this site (say, to replace that template “misty fall river” scene up there.)

As examples of the kinds of whole foods salads that I specialize in, I made:

Cold Buckwheat Noodle Salad and Kamut Salad  [Check out the gorgeous photos!]

    I also prepared small Raw Greens wraps, Korean BBQ style. This is a great way to enjoy the greens while we got ’em.

    Last Sun the kids and I made easy green roll-ups with bits of bread only. Last nite I grilled thin beef slices, chicken breast and firm tofu marinated/basted with Korean bulgolgi sauce (sweet & salty, like teriyaki). We wrapped these in a variety of raw leaves including beet leaves, young collard leaves, lettuce, baby mustard greens. Sliced cukes, scallions, garlic and dabs of Korean red pepper paste (like tomato paste) went inside too.

    Result is addictive!  Intense flavors cooled off by crunchy green vegetables.

    You can make green wraps with any well-flavored filling. Falafel, hummus, beans, fajitas, etc. The great thing is that the wraps are quite small and you put only a small chunk of meat or tofu inside, so you end up eating more raw veggies than you would otherwise!   Plus they’re fun to make.
