About This Little Piggy Went To The Farmers’ Market Blog
I’ve often heard people say they end up buying a lot of fresh food from the Farmers’ Market that then goes to waste as they don’t know what to do with it. Hopefully this will offer some inspiration to cook some great family meals.
This blog is about me trying to feed my obsession with good food, as well as feed my family (King Marv and four-year old twin girls, The Ladies™) with fresh, tasty, real food from my local farmers’ markets. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love an imported mango as much as the next tropical fruit aficionado, however my best food memories are of local, seasonal food. Best fish and chips? Whitby, North Yorkshire. Best lobster? Martha’s Vineyard. Best bread? My father’s – straight from the oven. So to that end, I’m going to try to cook with as much as local produce as possible. Store cupboard basics will be the exception as sadly there are no olive groves in New Jersey, although I would love to proved wrong on that.
About This Little Piggy
I previously enjoyed a career in marketing and as a brand strategist and am now filling my days taking care of my twins – The Ladies™ just outside of NYC in suburban wilderness. My love of food started at home as my mum made sure we ate very well. Later on life I discovered cheese when I spent a year in the Alps as a student. More recently I took La Technique at the French Culinary Institute in SoHo, NYC (you should see me cut an onion) where I really enjoyed dressing up in my chef’s whites. I enjoy using the invaluable techniques I learned there when cooking for my family.
I am available for cooking lessons, children’s cooking parties and food photography. Please email me at thislittlepiggywentATgmailDOTcom
