APIOPA: February CSA

We are in to week 3 of our CSA, and it’s all looking green and tasty!

In the CSA this week, we had a good variety that subscribers got to choose from.Here’s what we had, and I’ve attached the recipes we usually send out with the email.

Joe Miller Shows You What the Hell to Do With Your CSA

Love our local bounty and farmers markets as we do, not everyone around here is a budding Paul Shoemaker or Ray Garcia once they get back to the kitchen. When it comes to picking up a CSA box, no doubt a few hearts race to haphazardly improvise a meal along the same lines one uses to prepare dinner when cleaning out the fridge. Joe’s and Bar Pintxo chef and owner Joe Miller is coming to the rescue on February 25th, as the chef is appearing at Surfas that Saturday from 11:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. Miller plans to take one weekly CSA supply and demonstrate a full meal based on its contents, as the third part of the restaurant supply store’s “A Sustainable Kitchen” series. Even if you’re fairly confident using your organic beets and cauliflower, there’s little to lose here, as the event is totally free, with limited seating offered on a first-come, first-serve basis.

February 25th, 11:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. at Surfas8777 Washington Blvd. Culver City.
