JULY 24. . . . FOOD, FOOD, food: we can’t live without it, but how do we live with it? I came across The New York Times Magazine’s food edition from 2011, and the section where Michael Pollan (author of The Omnivore’s Dilemma and Food Rules: An Eater’s Manual) answers readers’ questions on everything from GMO labeling to shopping for milk is worth a look-at. You should be able to get to it at: http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2011/10/02/magazine/29mag-food-issue.html#…
I THINK IT WAS Mary, or maybe Bonnie, or maybe both, for whom I promised another mushroom soup recipe. I found this one in a New York Times cookbook, and it was made for using wild mushrooms–Brewer’s oysters are perfect! The mmmmmushroom soup recipe is posted to your right, is simple, quick, and inexpensive, and is absolutely delicious. **Boogertown variation–I skipped the egg, cheese, and bread and just made it and ate it with the readily available fresh summer veggies.
AND ON THE SUBJECT of summer soups, I must rave about the raw carrot soup that Patty made at her raw food demo at Epiphany on Monday night. It was cool, creamy, and oh so tasty. And made from raw, organic foods that you’ll find in your garden or at Rabbit Food? Unbelievable! Be sure to get in on Patty’s next demo. Email her for information: email@example.com
