Farm to Table: Grammy Edition
THE GRAMMYS GO GREEN
Awards season is in full swing, and this Sunday is the 53rd annual Grammy Awards. With so many people holding viewing parties try out some of these 2011 nominee themed dishes:
Cee Lo Green Bruschetta – Sautee a few bunches of chopped kale or chard from JR Organics or Vang Farms with a pinch of red pepper flakes until it softens and wilts. Put it on toasted baguette slices from Bread & Cie and top it all off with torn pieces of fresh buratta from Taste Cheese and a drizzle of olive oil from Bistro Blends or Italianissimo.
Arcade Fire Roasted Chicken – Start with your farm-fresh chicken from Descanso Valley or Da-Le Ranch, pat it dry, give it a good sprinkling of salt on the outside and stuff it with fresh herbs like rosemary and thyme from Schaner Farms (slip some under the skin too), a quartered lemon from Polito Family Farms and a few cloves of peeled garlic from Sage Mountain. Roast it uncovered in a pan in an oven set to 375F for one and a half hours for a 4-pound chicken so the skin turns crispy and brown. Squeeze the roasted lemon over the top just before serving.
