My dear readers, I'm apologizing to you for my lack of culinary posts as of late. Usually there is a bit more of a balance, but what can I say "It's Spring!". Plants, vegetables, flowers? All the same interests right?
I promise to prepare something lovely with Spring produce soon. To be honest many of my favorites have yet to hit the farmers market stalls; fava beans, peas, etc. Soon enough, I also heard news that asparagus just hit the markets yesterday. Until then aren't you guys happy looking at beautiful flowers? I've been obsessed, the smells, the color and the life appearing before my eyes.
Brooklyn Botanical Gardens is one of my favorite places in the city. In the last few years they have added a new vegetable and herb garden. I geek out looking at vegetables. Seeing lettuces pop out of the soil makes me crave their vibrant fresh taste in my salad bowl. Am I the only one who salivates over a good salad? Nothing better. I decided to put the gardens up in two posts. Next up Cherry Blossoms, Lilacs and Wisteria.
