Hey guys!  The vegetables are just getting better and better at the farmers market and I plan on taking full advantage of the bounty! While our farmers were hard at work, my mom and I took a tea making class this weekend taught by the lovely and brilliant Angela Bailey and I learned so much about our local herbs and can’t wait to start collecting some for the soups! Thats nette pictured above it it will hopefully make its way into the soup this week, don’t worry, it won’t sting you once cooked!

Here’s what you will find at the soup booth this week:

Monday in Baywood, Thursday in Morro Bay and Friday in Cambria, black eye pea with barley and golden beet carrot with red quinoa

I look forward to seeing you guys and don’t forget your jars!

Good ole days!

My dear friend, Lindsey has kindly offered to fill in for Brittani this week at the soup booth.  Lindsey and I used to work together at the Shine cafĂ© and It’s so fun to be beside her in food service once again,  even if its just for a week. Here’s what we’re serving up this week:

Monday in Baywood, Thursday in Morro Bay and Friday in Cambria, minestrone gnocchi and split pea
( I have been missing fresh tomatoes so much and was able to find some local ones at the farmers market on Friday so Monday’s soup will be traditional minestrone,  the other two days will depend on my tomato hunt being a success. The back up is pesto minestrone)

I look forward to seeing you guys and don’t forget your jars!

Rain or shine!

The soup booth, in all its glory.

I can’t help but notice that most of my soup updates are also about the upcoming weather for the week…so I suppose by searching for the weekly soups you are getting a weather report as a bonus : ).
Thaaaaat being said….
Looks like we are in for some rain and wind this week. Monday should be quite damp but you know the good news there (besides rain)…no opening bell in the rain! As long as there is soup in the pot, there’s no need to wait for market to start :) heres the plan:

Monday in Baywood, Thursday in Morro Bay and Friday in Cambria, potato leek with meyer lemon and turkish bride soup (both #glutenfree and #vegan)

I look forward to seeing you guys and don’t forget your jars!

Sprrrrring!

The lovely Brittani, at your service

I’m so thrilled about the spring harvest coming into the market right now! Despite the record breaking drought this year, our hard working farmers have persevered and are continuing to produce beautiful fruits and vegetables. Its more important than ever to support them as they are having to pay huge electric bills to keep their pumps running during a time where nature typically foots the bill. Im welcoming the spring harvest with a new soup this week, looking forward to seeing you!

Monday in Baywood, Thursday in Morro Bay and Friday in Cambria, ayurvedic dhal and roasted vegetable sesame barley

I look forward to seeing you guys and don’t forget your jars!

Missin you guys!

Monterey bay aquarium jellies…I got a little too into them….

So, as many of you read  (or figured out when you came to cambria last Friday) I had an unusual Friday off due to a one time kitchen closure at the morro bay community center where I prepare my soup. It felt very strange not being there so I checked my records and found that I had not missed that market in 19 months! I really missed you guys…I know, thats weird, but I really did and I’m very much looking forward to being back in the kitchen tomorrow!
Here’s what im cookin up:

Monday in Baywood, Thursday in Morro Bay and Friday in Cambria, Artichoke White Bean snd Carrot Ginger

I look forward (more this week than ever!) To seeing you all and don’t forget your jars!

I am so thankful for green Mountains! Lets hope we get another storm or two to keep that grass growing!
Heres the soups for this week:

Monday in Baywood, Thursday in Morro Bay: adzuki bean and barley and cashew cream of broccoli

Friday in Cambria: no soup this week, sorry!
Heads up Cambria: no soup this Friday. My commercial kitchen is a closed for the day so Im using it as an excuse for a rare 3 day weekend!  I will miss you guys though!  Please spread the word as I wasn’t able to warn you guys last week. Many thanks!
