St. Patrick's Day Treat: Green Kitchen

Happy St. Patrick's Day. I'd like to share a treat with you that I've just discovered that seems ever so appropriate on this day of green. Green Kitchen is an online video series hosted by Alice Waters and Davia Nelson of the Kitchen Sisters on NPR. Chefs taking part in Slow Food Nation 2008 recorded short cooking demos to teach the basics like making a vinaigrette, tying a roast, or shucking corn.

Videos include:
• Alice Waters and her daughter, Fanny Singer, making a green salad with garlic vinaigrette
• Bryant Terry making sautéed jalapeno corn
• Rick Bayless making roasted tomato and tomatillo salsas
• David Chang making tofu and tomato salad
• Scott Peacock making roasted and sautéed okra
• Traci Des Jardins making salsa verde
• Thomas Keller making roasted chicken
and more!

Check it out for some inspiration to get your garden growing or to get some ideas of what to do with the upcoming bounty from the farmers' market.

Fantastic! I love Alice Waters and the Kitchen Sisters. Can't wait to watch -- I always learn something new, even on techniques I've done hundreds of times.
