Winter Edition Of Local, Seasonal Cookbook Released Thursday

Thursday, December 6, 2012

Gaining Ground released on Thursday the winter edition of the seasonal cookbook, Eat Up, featuring favorite recipes from Chattanooga’s community members and market shoppers. This edition features potluck-style recipes that are healthy, comforting, and easy to take to holiday and family gatherings. The winter edition of Eat Up is free and only available at area farmers markets.

“Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you have to stop enjoying locally grown food – in fact, you’d be surprised at what produce is available when the weather turns cold” said Gaining Ground’s Ruth Kerr. “This edition of Eat Up highlights those nutritious dark, leafy greens and root veggies found at farmers markets during the winter. And don’t forget items like local meat, cheese and eggs – they’re available year round!”

In the newest Eat Up cookbook, you’ll find recipes like Sweet Potato Muffins, Kohlrabi Slaw and Winter Pizza, accompanied by tips on how to shop at winter farmers markets, seasonal eating and food preparation.  This edition is perfectly timed for the holiday season, showcasing dishes that are meant for sharing.  

“These cookbooks are a great way for more people to share in the true bounty of food produced right here in our community, especially this time of year when we celebrate family and gather with loved ones,” said Sonrisa Farm’s Maria Vives, whose recipe can also be found in this winter edition. “As a family, we enjoy matching our diet with what’s available in each season, and during the winter months there’s plenty of produce for your holiday gatherings.”

Below are the dates of the Gaining Ground sponsored samplings at local farmers’ markets. Market shoppers will be able to taste a finished dish and grab a cookbook copy.

Could The Marriage Decision Spark A New Independence Day?

I confess that this year I am having a hard time with the idea of celebrating the 4th of July Independence Day. It is not because I am not thankful to God for what was done on that day, what it represents, and the blessings I’ve experienced that flow from it. On the other hand, I want to think that maybe this year’s celebration will mark a period in our history in which a new movement ... (click for more)

Now my grandfather, ... (click for more)
