Cucumbers

June 23, 2015 - Radio Kitchen - Cucumbers  

One food that we are finding in abundance these days is one of the most modest:  the cucumber.  The flavor of a cucumber is so mild that it could stand duty as a metaphor for a quiet, unobtrusive demeanor.  But as is so often the case, the simple little ingredients of life serve as an essential backdrop for the more
flashy components of a dish.  Here are a few ideas that will make use of our Maryland cucumbers.

Grilling for Father's Day

June 16, 2015 - Radio Kitchen - Grilling for Father's Day

These days, if you can't go out and find the makings for a summer salad, you may not have a pulse.  This is high season for delicious locally grown produce to show up in the markets.  And as Chef Jerry Pellegrino of Waterfront Kitchen would admit, the fixings are only half of the salad.  We need the dressing too.

So we asked Liz Nuttle, owner of EN Olivier, to swing by with some salad dressing advice.  EN Olivier is one of our favorite stores, with lots of great super premium olive oils and balsamic vinegars, and other gourmet items.
