Seeds of Italy

Seeds of Italy

This is the source (for me at least) of Franchi seeds and in turn so much of the fresh food on our table. I've been buying these seeds for a few years, they are always of excellent quality and allow you to grow authentically Italian ingredients in your own garden. They have an excellent organic range, as well as several varieties of seed that are a bit more challenging but especially rewarding. Don't let your garden and in turn you plate without the produce from this peopole.

An intelligent discussion about food, what we eat and where it comes from. There's a lot of excited handwaving that happens about food - should you eat local, vegan, organic, macrobiotic - and this book actually takes a measured look at the politics and reality of food. Pollan is quite good and this is perhaps his best book. Entertaining and informative.

The blade needs to be very sharp to cut cleanly through the soft mushroom stalks, and this one is in a "bird beak" shape to help tuck in under the caps. A foldaway brush sweeps away soil without bruising. Made from beechwood and stainless steel.

Slow Food is a non-profit organization that promotes local food, knowledge of where our food comes from and how our choices affect the rest of the world. I can't put it any better, so this is what they say. "Slow Food is good, clean and fair food. We believe that the food we eat should taste good; that it should be produced in a clean way that does not harm the environment, animal welfare or our health; and that food producers should receive fair compensation for their work. We consider ourselves co-producers, not consumers, because by being informed about how our food is produced and actively supporting those who produce it, we become a part of and a partner in the production process."

Chef Morgan makes everything with stuff from local growers and ranches. On my way here I stopped at Veldhuizen Dairy where they make raw milk hard cheese that rivel european ones. Mr. Veldhuizen told me to stop by the Turtle in Brownwood on my way to Coleman. I would never have found this yuummy place otherwise as it is not on the highway but tucked away in downtown Brownwood. I ate about three servings of their home made gelato (what they call a medium) because I couldn't decide on a flavor. I bought chocolate hazel nut which was creamy just like what I had in Italy, and I had the blood orange sorbetto which tastes a little like sweet tarts, but the best was a basil tarragon gelato. The counter girl said they were serving this unusal flavor on top of peaches foster with special that night. Unfortunately I couldn't stay for dinner. Instead I had a sandwich - homemade challah with chicken salad and crispy curly curly potato fries and hit the road.

The slow food movement isn't just about taking the time to stop and smell (eat?) the roses. It is also a strong base of support for maintaining biodiversity (the Incas had over 240 varieties of potatoes - how many have you seen in your local market?).
