Blackbird Farm 4th Annual Farm-to-Chef Open House
Although I have dabbled in making soft cheeses (such as mozzarella) in the various hotels and restaurants that I have worked in I have never really had the opportunity to make different types of cheeses, more specifically hard cheese. That’s about to change.
As a follow up to my last blog post Earth Day 2012- A Culinary/Locavore Holiday and in honor of Earth Day. I decided to plant a herb garden.
I decided to use the space between my two raised garden beds because I will still be able to access the garden beds from all sides and I was tired of mowing that little strip of grass. I decided to use rocks instead of mulch because rocks will last forever, compared to mulch that I would have to replace every few years and now I have a rock garden.
This Sunday April 22nd we celebrate the 42nd annual Earth Day. A day that I have personally deemed to be not only a Culinary Holiday but also a day to celebrate being an Locavore. Treating the environment and our bodies correctly and naturally go hand in hand, but we continue to abuse both, we are becoming more and more obese in America and corporate farmers, seed makers, food producers are continually trying to find a seed that grows quicker, a cow that is so pumped up with hormones that I wouldn’t be surprised if it could no longer Moo, but instead quacks. So why not start making a difference and changing how and what you eat.
