|Christina & Dagmar|
This recipe does just that, and it comes to us from two new vendors to our market this year, Dagmar and her daughter, Christina, authors of the cookbook, Forgotten Favourites.
|Mountains of radishes at Riverbend Gardens|
Dagmar says that her goal is to make cooking at home an easy endeavour. And she firmly believes that wonderful meals prepared at home and shared together with your family are an easy and affordable thing to do.
With people relying more and more on take out food, ready-to-go meals and eating in restaurants, the art of home cooking is being lost. Dagmar and Christina want to help you remember what good home cooking is, and they want to help you rekindle that love of forgotten favourites in your own home. They want to bring back the tradition of family meals and gathering with friends around the dining room table, sharing simple, tasty dishes that you would be proud to serve.
|Butter Lettuce at S4 Greenhouses|
They are sharing this recipe with you today because you will find many of the ingredients at an early spring farmers' market... hot house butter lettuce, farm fresh - free range eggs, radishes (one of the first field crops to ever come in!), greenhouse grape tomatoes and honey.
Christina and Dagmar will be at the the market each week from May 21 until June 18 selling their cookbook, full of those feel good, heritage recipes.
