Farmer’s Market


Living Local

I have recently heard of the Westminster Farmer’s Market.  This Friday I decided to check it out for the first time.  For such a small community I was surprised to see just how many farms were represented.  I would highly recommend anyone who has never been to a farmers market to check one out.  It is amazing to see the wide variety of products available that go far beyond any mass-produced supermarket varietals.  Something as simple as a tomato can become a work of art that tastes equally amazing, plus the freshness of something picked the same day simply can’t be beat.  I ended up getting a half dozen Japanese Eggplant from Woodland Ridge Farm.

Clasic Fish and Chips

Classic Fish and Chips

Fish and Chips is one of the first things that comes to mind when I think of a Scottish restaurant.  Whether it is a takeaway shop on the street, or a full service restaurant this dish is a staple any menu.  This dish is simple to prepare but takes some time to make because of the tartar sauce and coleslaw.  These sides are best made a day ahead of time to allow the flavors to blend together.  The beer batter should be made just before cooking to have the crispest crust on the fish.
