Elm Street Books in New Canaan CT had a FABULOUS event tonight. Patricia Wells came to talk about her new book SALAD AS A MEAL. The reception included a buffet of her Greek Salad (recipe in book) home-made bread, wine…do you get the picture? I have heard her speak before and at the end of the evening everyone wants to sign up to attend her cooking classes in Paris or Provence.
Are you planning your garden to produce the vegetables and herbs you use with frequency, or the ones that are difficult to find or just planting with abandon?
Tonight’s event has made me think about which herbs and vegetables will afford me the MOST delicious and nutritious menus!
P.s. The chicken curry for my menu tonight began with the blackening of bay leaves (bay plant grown on the windowsill until the weather is better, and then outside for the Summer.)
The brown one is one taken from a McCormick’s jar; good in a pinch, but just not the same as home-grown!
