During our #eatbreadandbeauty challenge, we recognize and celebrate the work of all of the partners in our local food ecosystem, which includes you! The "sun up to sundown" work of the farmer, so beautifully described in the Plow and Stars Farm essay in the book (that's Mark below with the bumper crop of zucchini at market) and the tireless work of the folks at Manna Food Center and Montgomery County Food Council making sure that everyone in our community has access to nutritious and fresh food and tackling the enormous problem of food waste. We salute the home cooks and chefs working every day to express their appreciation for the farmers' efforts and the foods' glory. We applaud the composter and the gardener, feeding pollinators and the soil, as integral parts of this complex and beautiful web of relationships. While the zucchini comes in fast and furious, check out this recipe for Zucchini Tian (a layered vegetable casserole) modified from the one on page 176 in an article by Montgomery County Food Council and while you are there, learn more about their amazing work! Please share the myriad ways you are making use of this abundant summer vegetable and the sublime joys of summer eating and tag #eatbreadandbeauty.
