In Washington D.C., Shawn Traylor begins his odyssey with Community Supported Agriculture.

A few weeks ago, I was kicking around in Adams Morgan on a Saturday morning. The residue from Snowpocalypse 2010 had finally melted, the sun was shining, and I was feeling fine. I turned the corner onto Columbia Road, and saw a big white delivery truck where a smiling, bearded man was handing happy people boxes of gorgeous produce. “What’s this?” I thought. I meandered over to investigate.......read more

A journey into community supported agriculture continues. On the menu: Poached arctic char with Italian dandelion contorni.

If you happen to be making a list of (or song about, coffee table book on…) the world’s filthiest and/or ugliest vegetables, please make sure to include salsify on your list. Would you just look at how ugly these things are?!? But, through the miracle of Photoshop, look how purty I made them.   I jest. No Photoshop trickery here, just some peeling, boiling, mashing, mixing,......read more

Shawn Traylor takes a day away from his farmbox cooking odyssey to plant his very own Russian-style garden.

Taking a slight left turn at Albuquerque now, folks, so please remember to keep all arms, legs, and capes inside the vehicle. Today we’re going to change it up a little and forgo the usual cooking and talk a little about growing things that will be cooked at a future date uncertain.   As you may have learned from previous posts on this very Web log, I have the amazing fortune to be......read more
