Zucchini velouté


You cannot imagine how happy I am when in spring, back at the farmers market, I see more and more produce becoming available, especially after a hard and long winter like the one we had this year in NY. I love wandering through the market and discovering week after week which produce is back again. To celebrate the abundance and beauty of fresh and available produce I created this delicious creamy but light zucchini soup that I like to serve cool. Very few ingredients, easy to make and keeps well for the next day as well.


The Pumpkins Are Here




It is October, rainy days are becoming more frequent, and the sun is less warming. It is also the month of pumpkins and winter squashes. They are starting to appear all over the farmers markets, and seem to mesmerize year after year by their bright colors, varieties and sometimes huge sizes. There are many different types of squashes and pumpkins out there, several with funny shapes and equally funny names.
