Who decided that peas and carrots pair so well? What's the secret behind the dazzling duos of coffee and cream or beef and wine? The Pacific Beach Tuesday Farmers' Market is the ultimate destination to source and experiment with some of life's greatest flavors. Really, it's quite simple, and you get to play chef.
Sear bitter radicchio or mustard greens from Suzie's Farm with sweet shell beans and the aged balsamic vinegar from the guys at California Olive Oil. Sauté those big leaves of swiss chard from JR organics with minced garlic, olive oil, and a bit of fresh squeezed lime juice from Paradise Valley Ranch. Make a warm winter soup with ginger, carrots from Maciel Family Farms, celery from JR Organics and a bit of garlic. Mix PB Peanut Butter and Mikolich Honey with hot chili peppers from your favorite farmer and give stir fried vegetables a taste of Thailand. Roast a few pink lady apples from Smit Orchards and highlight them with lavender from Keys Creek Lavender Farm, drizzling them with butter from Spring Hill Cheese.
