Plenty Epicurean Pantry > our journal - fall

By: Epicurean Pantry  09-12-2011

Over the next month I’ll start posting recipes here that I plan to use as our family’s standards (and some special ones for the seasons).  Erica is finished her maternity leave soon and I’ll be keeping the home fires burning during the day until Viola starts kindergarden.  The recipes will in general be fairly straight forward and reasonably quick.  Our diet is largely vegetarian but fish and the odd poultry recipe may make the cut.  They will be categorized not by ingredient but instead with an indication of when I’m likely to want to make the recipe (i.e.: Monday evening, school lunch, Fall, rainy day…).  It’s a method of categorization that is loosely inspired by

.  We try to eat in season and cook with what arrives in our weekly

box but generally when I cook it comes down to what I am in the mood for (hopefully that’ll most often correspond with the season and what’s at hand).

It would take us a lifetime to try all the great recipes in this cookbook and we often look to it for inspiration when faced with an odd assortment of vegetables in our weekly organics box. One of our favourite meals is Aloo Gobi (Curried Cauliflower and Potatoes) from the incredible The Art of Indian Vegetarian Cooking: Lord Krishna’s Cuisine by Yamuna Devi. Aloo Gobi” and received 1480 results - not a difficult recipe to find.

The Eat Here Now 2011 Local Food Harvest Festival is an event organized by the Victoria Downtown Public Market Society in support of the re-establishment of a year-round, indoor local food-centered public market for downtown Victoria.

For a book about cafes, bars, and hangouts it wasn’t as rollicking a read as I imagined it might be, none-the-less Oldenburg’s case for “the informal public life and the Great Good Places essential to it” sheds light on some fundamental elements of culture and society that too often we overlook. Thus, its profusion of sidewalk cafes seems to be Paris, just as the forum dominates one’s mental picture of classic Rome.

These ‘pumpkin spice biscotti’ turned out quite good but were chewy versus the normal crunchy. I smell a theme….just found the recent plenty-posts and thought I would join in. Thanks for the photo and inspiration to try my hand at biscotti. Bobbie followed a Pumpkin Biscotti recipe submitted by to. Hey pumpkin bumpkins, “Seasons Greetings”.
