Art of the Artichoke
Amidst pumpkins, apples and other Fall bounty, it is easy to forget that artichokes are also in season! First, learn the in's & out's of trimming and steaming these thistly vegetables, then move on to dishes with big artichoke flavor like Chef Jody Adams' Braised Chicken Thighs w/ Artichokes, Olives & Capers.
These warm and satisfying soups give liquid courage a whole new meaning with flavors for every taste. Start off with creamy concoctions like Spinach, Feta & Pine Nut Soup or Cheddar, Broccoli & Beer Soup, then transition into the land of broths with timeless standbys like Italian Wedding Soup or the ever-savory Miso Soup (pictured). And if you can, we recommend making your own stock.
Drink Beer, Eat Beer
We love to kick back with a bottle of seasonal beer as much as we enjoy cooking with it! Our savory Cheddar, Broccoli & Beer Soup is a good place to begin, then go sweet with Beer-Poached Pears. Wonder what your mug o' suds started out as? View our farm field trip in Growing and Harvesting Hops (pictured).
