Earthbound Farm Organic Luncheon

May 27, 2009

Earthbound Farm recently hosted a luncheon at their California organic farm stand for the media attending the  “Cooking for Solutions” conference at Monterey Bay Aquarium. This spot is home to a 30-acre organic farm, market and one of the country’s first certified organic kitchens.

(The “Cooking for Solutions” conference held earlier this month addressed critical issues around ways to move sustainable and organic foods deeper into the culinary mainstream. Stay tuned for more info in additional TidBites.)

After a tour of Earthbound Farm —  the nation’s leading grower of organic produce that was started in 1984 by Myra Goodman and her husband Drew — we were served a luscious array of fresh salads prepared by Earthbound Farm’s chef. The buffet included curried garbanzo beans, edamame, carrots and apple slaw, French lentil salad with feta, cucumber salad, roasted beet salad, tamari pumpkin seeds, sweet and spicy walnuts, garlicky broccolette  and more…

You can find many of these recipes in Myra’s cookbook  Food to Live By: The Earthbound Farm Organic Cookbook (Workman Publishing Company, 2006), click here if you’d like to purchase a copy.

    Today for the first time we tried your Broccolette – Steamed with a little cheese sauce. It was delicious. I bought it at my Canadian (Calgary) Safeway. We will try it again. We are more and more going “Organic”. Too many kids with ADD and other hyperactivity systems, which did not excist at all when I was young. Thank you. Gus van Heusden
