Memorial Day Farm Fresh Markets

Along with sunshine and flowers, the spring brings a wide array of fresh produce. Looking across the vast market, we see all the new springtime faces staring back at us. The long, slim white asparagus, the prickly artichokes, the spherical, cratered morel mushrooms, and the sleek, magenta rhubarb are all screaming, "Pick Me!" These chefs' recipes use the fresh flavors of the season's ingredients to create simple, delicious dishes. You might start with the light, refreshing Chilled Leek and Potato Soup, followed by the Whitefish Fillets with earthy Morels and delicate Asparagus, and finish with the homey Rhubarb Crisp. Go ahead, taste the sunshine and experience the bounty of spring.
