Every Saturday morning, Laura and Joanne met at the local farmers’ market to learn what kinds of fresh, local and in-season foods were available for that week. They purchased all the meat, fruit, vegetables and nuts to prepare a meal for eight on the following Monday. As each from-scratch recipe was prepared, careful notes were taken. The result, 52 delicious home-style dinners were held at Joanne’s home that year.
“We are fortunate to live in a region where delicious fresh fruits, meats and vegetables render themselves abundantly all year round. Joanne and Laura have provided a valuable service in creating these fantastic recipes that enable us to enjoy fresh, healthy, local foods at all times of year.” ~ Assemblyman Ted
