NY Greenmarket Appearance
An announcement and a recipe.
This Sunday the 20th of September beginning at 11 a.m. I will be at the New York Greenmarket with Fusion On The Fly live creating multiple dishes out of fresh market ingredients. Show up at 77th and Columbus and taste some food with me. No reservations required.
We are so lucky that at most Greenmarkets in NY we have such wide choices of food from the freshest vegetables and meats to handmade cheeses and fresh pasta. I will only be adding seasoning and olive oil (both of which are available at the flea market across the street.)
I will be doing a variation of Green Beans Franca and something with her delicious smoked trout.
While I will not be making Ed's 5 pepper tacos I will be using some of his wonderful fruit in another dish.
One of my newest favorite 'Salads' is one of the simplest and most refreshing ways to enjoy summer.
Asian Cucumber Salad
1 tablespoon hot chili oil
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
Cut cucumbers into coin sized slices and using your best chopstick skill dip them in the sauce and eat. This dish will make you grateful for the last vestiges of Summer and there are so few calories you can eat as many cucumbers as you like.
