Local Potluck: Summer ’09

Wild strawberries growing in our backyard - very local!

Wild strawberries growing in our backyard - very local!

About three or four times a year, usually about once per season, some friends and I gather together for a completely local meal. We plan a menu based upon what is available at the local farmer’s markets, divide up the dishes between us, and gather at one of our homes for an afternoon of delicious, 100% local food & drink.

Last weekend I was the host and we lucked out with a rare, 4-hour window of sun in the endless rainy weather. Sadly I didn’t manage to take any pictures of the bounty, but, just in case you are planning your own version of “local potluck”, I’ve presented the menu below.
