Produce Box Week 6

This weekend, I went to the Family Farmed Expo at the Chicago Cultural Center. Newleaf Natural Grocery, the company that runs my produce delivery service, had a booth there, so it was nice to meet them and tell them how much I enjoy their products. I also got to sample a lot of food – mostly organic cheeses, breads and dips. Most of it was pretty good, but I was disappointed to discover that pistachio butter doesn’t taste like anything and honey wine tastes a little funky.

I also saw cooking demonstrations by Gale Gand and Rick Bayless. They were both great. They both talked a little bit about being on the Food Network (Gand has her own show, Sweet Dreams, and Bayless was recently a guest on Emeril’s show). Gand was saying that the Food Network discourages chefs from giving measurements when they’re making a recipe, forcing people to visit the Web site. I guess that’s not really surprising. I wouldn’t want to sit there taking notes while a watch a cooking show, even if they did. But, still, kind of interesting.

Anyway, on to this week’s produce box:

  • Kale
  • Bunch spinach
  • Green onions
  • Yams
  • Mushrooms
  • Tomatoes
  • Red Valencia oranges
  • Lemons
  • Kiwi
  • Granny Smith apples
  • Bananas
