Exploring CT Resources
Sunday, October 07, 2007
Although September is over, which was the official Eat Local Challenge month, I am still really interested in keeping it up. Of course, the challenge is that winter is coming, so I have to figure out how to preserve things and new recipes for foods that I've never cooked before. And I've been looking at restaurants that buy local (Chez Panisse style). In this research mode, I've found some good resources. I've already extolled the virtues of the Cityseed Farmers Markets (here and here), but I've found a few other helpful things in my quest to eat locally:

Zinc, a restaurant on Chapel Street in New Haven, has a market fresh menu on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Anyone want to save up a little money and go with me to see what this tastes like?

Cityseed has a Connecticut Crop Calendar of what is in season when, which is helpful for planning what I'll be cooking. has a whole slew of video recipes for seasonal eating. You can search them by season, too.

Not that I know where Wilton, CT is, but the restaurant The Schoolhouse at Cannondale is apparently really into local ingredients in their menu items.

Bishop's Orchards has a farm market and is only in Guilford, which isn't that far.

Seasonal Eating is a blog focusing on...okay, that should be obvious.

That's about it...for now.
