Christine Von Der Linn at the Farmers Market Every Month Until November

| No Comments

Christine Von der Linn will be on hand at the Farmers Market at the Pearl Street Lot in downtown Metuchen for Vegging Out with Christine -- a series of informational demonstrations showcasing current crops, focusing on botanical families such as alliums, brassicas, vining plants, stone fruits and nightshades.

"Many people asked what I'm doing and why," she said. "When I told them that I'm at the market to give people ideas and guidance on how to use some of this beautiful produce, they think it's a great idea. People tend to get in a food `rut,' buying the same familiar foods week after week. I want to help them explore new tastes and show what nutritional powerhouses they are."

Von der Linn is a graduate of the Natural Gourmet Institute and enjoys using her interest in and knowledge of cooking and nutrition to offer workshops on health supportive cooking and food sustainability.

"My goal is to encourage people to try new and different foods, demystify them, and help our New Jersey farmers sell the delicious produce they've worked so hard to grow."

Upcoming dates and topics include:

August 9th - Night Moves: Tomatoes, Eggplant, Peppers and other Nightshades

September 13th - Kale: Still Hip, But Check out Its Cruciferous Companions

October 18th - Take Your Parsnip by the Hand: A Revue of Apples, Pumpkins and other Stars of Summer and Fall's Mixed-Weather Square Dance

November 22nd - Underground Movements: Roots, Tubers, and Colder Weather Edibles

Be sure to look for the Vegging Out Stand on these dates!
