The colder, rainy weather of the past few weeks has everyone feeling a little under the weather. Come to Thursday market to get stock up on feel-better foods, like ginger for homemade tea, chicken and veggies for cure-all chicken soup, and vitamin C packed strawberries for an immune-booster. Fresh, whole foods are one of the best ways to keep your mind and body healthy.
Saturday Market, March 2, 2013 | 8 am - 12 noon
This Saturday we combine reading and eating; two of our favorite things! We welcome local cookbook authors Elsa Hahne and Lorin Gaudin to market with their wonderful books, highlighting New Orleans flavor and culture. Elsa's THE GRAVY: In the Kitchen with New Orleans Musicians digs into the deep connections between New Orleans music and food with forty-four first-person accounts from musicians and more than two hundred photographs. Lorin's New Orleans Chef's Table explores the culinary traditions in our fair city, amidst the dining evolution taking place, with recipes for the home cook from 50 of the city's most celebrated restaurants. Our monthly Marketeers event will focus on recipe reading skills, from making and shopping with a list, to measuring and cooking according to a recipe. Everyone will go home with a special gift!
Recipe of the Week
The weather seems to be warming up, so there is not much time left to enjoy hot soup to fend off those cold days. While this soup may not be a tried and true remedy for a cold, we can't resist using Louisiana oysters at their peak! Warm up with this delicious, creamy Louisiana Oyster Chowder. You can find pre-shucked oysters at many local specialty grocery stores and seafood shops.
