While figs are plentiful at California farmers markets, they tend to be more elusive in the Hudson Valley. If you want locally grown figs, you usually have to grow them yourself or have a generous neighbor who grows them in their backyard garden. When we saw this luscious fruit on the Wrights Farm table, we were awestruck. They’re bringing a small amount to the Market and we couldn’t be happier! This honeyed, pillow-soft, fruit shines in salads and on cheese plates. We fell in love with a quinoa fig salad Rose, the Market Manager, made for Pascale’s wedding. Here’s a similar recipe.
Eileen Russell, the woodworker behind American Bow Knife, visits tomorrow with her handcrafted, functional wood products. Her blades encased in wooden masterpieces are a sight to behold! Visiting friends or relatives for Rosh Hashanah? Bring a one-of-a kind bow knife or cutting board as a hostess gift. Her mezzalunas are perfect for the littlest chefs in your life — the curved handle and blade are the right size for small hands and help children control their chop. All of her creations are handmade from solid hardwood, and each piece has its own unique characteristics — knots, blemishes, scars, age rings and discolorations.
