This weekend at our local markets, learn how to make (and taste) a delicious recipe, and discover a “cure” for the winter blues.
At the Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket on Saturday, December 7 from 9am-12pm, Kate Galassi of Quinciple , a weekly grocery delivery service in Brooklyn and Manhattan, will demonstrate how to make maple pumpkin cornbread using farmer-ground cornmeal from Cayuga Pure Organics. Stop by the info tent for free recipe cards and samples!
Then on Sunday, December 8 at the Park Slope Farmers Market, be sure to say hello to South Slope neighbor Scott Bridi, founder of Brooklyn Cured. A new item for his winter menu is pancetta, inspired by “this time of year when we are all cooking more at home and staying close to the hearth,” as Scott recently told Down to Earth. “Our pancetta is like bacon, Italian style! It’s seasoned simply with black pepper, fennel seed, and warm spice — so delicious and so versatile. Use it in pasta dishes, bean dishes, and even serve it with eggs for breakfast.”
The GAP Greenmarket runs Saturdays from 8am-4pm at Grand Army Plaza. The Park Slope Farmers Market runs Sundays from 10am-4pm along 4th Street at 5th Ave.
