We had our first event of the year at Country Flowers Greenhouse and it was great! We had tastings of recipes from Stick to Local Foods Cookbook: Asparagus Lemon Salad, Bright Greens Soup and Strawberry Rhubarb Compote with tiny shortbreads. The setting was beautiful--the weather was gorgeous, we were surrounded by flowers, and Drew and Robin Andersen were wonderful hosts. I was lucky to have the help of Jemma Rose Brown, who I call my "fairy goddaughter." I've known Jemma since she was born, we share a birthday, and now she's an accomplished young woman--in fact, she interned at Martha Stewart and now is the social media pro at The Moth. Her experience and skills were so helpful on our test tasting! Thanks Jem! Next up: Strawberry Festival on Saturday June 20 at Saunderskill Farms Market in Accord.
