It’s the fourth week of our Summer Chef Series! This week we welcome Betty Rosbottom. Betty is the author of 12 cookbooks, including Soup Nights, Sunday Soup, Sunday Brunch, and Sunday Casseroles. She wrote a weekly syndicated column for Tribune Media Services for 20 years and has been a frequent contributor to Bon Appetit Magazine. She also hosted “On The Menu,” a popular local PBS series aired in western New England. She posts delicious recipes and great stories on her popular blog. Betty was recently named by Epicurious as one of The 100 Greatest Home Cooks of All Time. Betty’s books, and books written by the other guest chefs in the series, will be available to purchase thanks to Amherst Books.
Betty will be teaching us how to make Warm or Cool Carrot Soup with Coconut and Lime. Check out a preview of Betty’s demo on Mass Appeal, which aired last Friday: We are very lucky to have three terrific partners for the Summer Chef Series. The event is sponsored by culinary agency The Lisa Ekus Group, Northampton’s cooking store, The Baker’s Pin and River Valley Co-op. Thank you to these local businesses for helping to bring this fun and also educational series to Northampton.
Apex Orchard continues to bring newly ripened fruit to market. This week they will have an even wider selection: nectarines, Bartlett and Red Clapp’s Favorite pears, Ernie’s Choice peaches, and of course plenty of apples. Apex will also be running a special- spend $15 on fruit and get a free quart box of peaches!
Ginger has arrived at the market! Find fresh young ginger at Old Friends Farm. Stop by the market tent to chat ginger recipes!
Along with supporting the roll-out of HIP, Grow Food Northampton has provided funding for our SNAP matching at the market tent each week. So far this year we have matched just under $6,000 of SNAP benefits at the market tent. We are currently matching up to $5 per customer, per market. We are now seeking sponsors to fund the remaining 9 markets and to help sustain this valuable program. Is your business or organization interested in supporting our SNAP Matching effort? Get in touch for more information on the sponsorship benefits and details.
The following farms are currently processing HIP at Tuesday Market: Crabapple Farm, Wingate Farm, Red Fire Farm, Old Friends Farm, Hart Farm and Park Hill Orchard.
Stop by the purple market tent to learn more! If you know someone who receives SNAP benefits, make sure they’re in the know- tell them about HIP!
