Pate a Choux Frites
The ultimate foodie road trip
up the Pacific Northwest
There was so much to journal and so many photos
that I made a quick video to give you a taste (pun intended)
of our food adventure
It was such a pleasure and honor to provide food for the City of Redlands and RCMA/Redlands Bowl Brunch & Broadway Event sponsored by the USDA. I had a great time teaching people about the quick homemade meals that can be made with our wonderful local fruits and vegetables. On the menu: Veggie Quiche made with farm fresh local eggs, Oven Potatoes with roasted peppers and onions, Blueberry Muffins, Sweet Potato Muffins, Homemade Salsa, Fruit Skewers & Parfaits, Fruit Smoothies and fresh squeezed Juices.
Excerpt from Redlands Daily Facts By Rory O’Sullivan, Correspondent
REDLANDS>> Brunch and Broadway participants Saturday morning had a plate full of farm to table food and sang along to favorite show tunes.
The Mission Gables House was full of people having quiches, muffins, mac n’ cheese and locally grown fruit shish-kebab style. Chef Angela Brooks-Van Niel said she uses the best ingredients. There was also fresh juice and smoothies.
Brunch and Broadway was made possible by a grant from the USDA’s Farmers’ Market Promotion Program to introduce locally grown produce to seniors and families and a grant provided by the James Irvine Foundation to the Redlands Bowl. The goal of the grants is to enhance awareness of Redlands’ farmers’ markets and to make locally grown produce more accessible and to promote the arts in the community.
Brooks-Van Niel said locally grown food has more nutrition, no preservatives, is affordable, gives you an opportunity to socialize with the friends and helps stimulate the economy.
Simply Fancy Cuisine purchased freshly grown produce from the downtown Saturday Farmers’ Market and Market Night to prepare brunch spinach-and-kale quiche, fruit salads, fresh juices and roasted vegetables.
Farmers markets in Redlands are Saturday mornings in downtown, Saturday mornings at The Grove School and Thursday evenings in Downtown Redlands.
Brunch and Broadway was part of the June in Jumpin’ series put on by the city of Redlands.
