It should come as no surprise to my readers that I would plan a vacation around food, and while this journal is dedicated to covering the farm to table movement in the New Jersey & Eastern Pennsylvania region (as of now), sometimes you have to leave your beloved home to discover and reconnect with your passions. Since...

Toward the end of August, I start to freak out about the fact that I haven’t cooked enough corn and tomatoes. On the fear scale, it’s not at the top (definitely below scary, aggressive wasps), but it certainly gets me moving to the farmers market quicker than I’m used to moving. I know there will come a time when...

I have lived in New Jersey all my life. It’s the 4th smallest state in the country, and you can drive from one end to the other in just a few hours.

This heat is starting to get to me. I love being outdoors, but when there’s an excessive heat warning and Accuweather is telling me the RealFeel temperature is 103, that means I’m stuck indoors. And it also means I have to limit the amount of cooking I do. And this is really hard for me because I need more than a...

You might not expect to hear roosters crowing during your typical dining experience. But this is no typical dining experience. The farm in Brick Farm Tavern isn’t there as a marketing ploy meant to capitalize on the farm-to-table “trend” that has emerged over these last few years. This is a restaurant on a real...

Some days in the kitchen are a bit more adventurous than others. I’ve wanted to put into action the ricotta recipe I got from Cherry Grove Farm’s cheese class, AND I had the chance to grab some tasty Hun Val Dairy Farm’s single-source, non-homogenized milk from Brick Farm Market. So it was simply foodie fate. I am not...
