It’s been a while since we’ve posted a ‘quick bites’ style blog entry, but next month’s bounty of opportunities makes for a great excuse to pick it back up! Kicking off the month is The Market to Market Bicycle Adventure on May 5th – a bike ride between the North Market and Hills Market (in either direction). Start off with breakfast at the market of your choice and then enjoy a leisurely cycle up (or down) the bike path to earn your reward of a scoop of Jeni’s ice cream at the end. There’s also a goodie bag with $50 […]

Splendid Holiday

December 17th, 2010    •  by Bethia    •   1 Comment »

Columbus has many annual food events. This week saw a fantastic new event that I hope will become an annual tradition. Splendid Holiday was held in the North Market’s Dispatch kitchen and was masterminded by Jeni’s Ice Creams.  As well as being a benefit for local non-profit Local Matters it was an opportunity to try some festive local food and drinks. Splendid Holiday was a wonderful reminder of how many artisan producers and new food entrepreneurs we have in Columbus. There was a wealth of sweet treats including Omega Bakery (Bouche de Noel), Three Babes and a Baker (cupcakes), Pattycake […]

Yellow Oyster Mushrooms

June 13th, 2010    •  by Bethia    •   1 Comment »

Yesterday I had the pleasure of spending the morning with Jim Rockwell, from Toby Run Growers, at the North Market Farmers’ Market. I was preparing samples of Jim’s shitake and oyster mushrooms for the shoppers who braved both the disruption of Park Street festival and the rain. For those of you who didn’t see these beauties, I wanted to share some photos. The shitakes were good too, but I was captivated by the yellow oyster mushrooms. Oyster mushrooms are so called because the shape is reminiscent of an oyster, but some people also think there is a similarity in flavor. […]

On May 1st I will be teaching a Mother’s Day kids cooking class at the North Market’s Dispatch Kitchen. We will be making vegetable robots, homemade pasta and ravioli, butter and chocolate truffles as a gift for Mother’s Day. I am really looking forward to it. Last month I assisted at Sheri Lisak’s kids Valentine’s Day class and it helped me to finalize what I want to teach and how much we can do during the 90 minute class. Sheri is a veteran cooking teacher and was fantastic with the kids. I was amazed at how engaged they stayed for […]

Fiery Foods Festival

February 24th, 2010    •  by Bethia    •   No Comments »

The Fiery Foods Festival is a fun North Market event with competitions for chefs, amateur cooks and crazy people who want to see how many hot peppers they can eat. Appropriately held in one of the coldest months of the year, the Fiery Foods Festival is definitely a winter warmer. Many of the vendors get into the spirit promoting their existing spicy products or creating something for the occasion. The Greener Grocer had an amazing array of peppers, Taste of Belgium had shrimp and grits waffles and Jeni’s were highlighting their spicy ice creams. For children there was face painting, […]

Cabbage and Kale

December 5th, 2009    •  by Bethia    •   1 Comment »

My friends Margaux and Tim very kindly offered to share some of their excess Thanksgiving CSA produce. Tim arrived on the doorstep with a huge bag of kale and a napa cabbage as big as a newborn baby. This bag of greens took up a whole shelf in the fridge and we spent over a week having a series of cabbage and kale based meals. There were at least four varieties of kale in the mix, including lacinato (or dinosaur) kale, Russian kale and curly kale (pictured from left to right). The top picture is of red Russian kale. Kale […]
