It’s one of my favorite times of year…

I’m a huge fan of working with fresh, local, seasonal foods –

And in the Philadelphia, South Jersey and Delaware areas… the summer brings us GREAT produce….

 

This is a shot of the FIRST tomato of summer…

We’ve got several pots of cherry tomatoes plants, which have given up a dozen or so summery sweet ripe tomatoes….we’ve picked several green and jalapeño peppers and green beans should be next to pick…

But this is the first, full sized tomato to ripen…  it will become lunch tomorrow with basil from our herb pots, fresh mozzarella from the Italian market,  unfiltered olive oil and a touch of sea salt.

Dinner tonight will include the first South Jersey corn of the year and I’ve already been enjoying local blueberries…..

Working with your caterer to include fresh, seasonal, local ingredients will not only bring amazing flavor to your wedding reception but also is a great treat for many of your out of town guests…
