It is with great sadness I write my last Seasonal Chef post for the LoHud Food Blog. It has been a glorious four-plus years of creating and sharing my recipes. When I first started writing my column little did I know how much fun I would have developing easy recipes from farmer’s market ingredients. So much so, that my writing and recipe development for my readers has blossomed exponentially.
Coupled with my writing, my farmers market demos have grown as well. Starting in the summer of 2010 at the Purchase Farmers Market over the years I have criss-crossed Westchester County demoing from Ossining to Katonah, and down as far as Pelham, with many markets in between. For me there is nothing more rewarding that getting a market-goer excited about trying a new ingredient, and giving them a few easy tips to make a delicious dish.
So while I am leaving my LoHud blogging behind, I will continue to write my own blog: Reflections from my Bella Cucina. (I hope you will consider subscribing!) You can search for my Seasonal Chef recipes on my website under the Seasonal Chef tab.
You will also be able to find me in person doing cooking classes at Hilltop Hanover Farm throughout the growing season. A have a new set of classes kicking off beginning in April, running through June, and more to follow.
Last, I will be heading to our local Westchester farmers markets this Summer and into the Fall. The schedule of my appearances at the markets is regularly updated on my web site under the Demos tab, along with my Facebook page.
Many thanks to Liz Johnson, Megan McCaffrey and the wonderful team at LoHud for giving me the opportunity to share my passion for food, with you, on the LoHud site.
Rather than say goodbye, Italians say a presto, meaning see you soon. I do hope to see you soon either in a future cooking class or at one of my farmer’s market demos.
