Must Own: New Cookbook Draws Recipes from CT’s Farms, Best Chefs + Restaurants

6 May
The Connecticut Farm Table Cookbook

“If you live in New York or New England, there is a culinary adventure to be had in so many parts of the state. Grab the book, chart your course, and make a day trip or weekend out of it!” -Christy Colasurdo

One of the best things about running OmNomCT is that we get to meet so many great people. And, the majority of those people are so passionate about food and have so much experience and expertise to share. One such person that we’ve come to know is Christy Colasurdo. She has written for the NY Times, managed the social media of Wakeman Town Farm, is a writer, consultant, and editor for Westport Magazine, and helped to get Graze Delivered (now Simple Scallion) food delivery service up and running. 

Over a year ago, she began to work with Tracey Medeiros, author of the Vermont Farm Table Cookbook and Dishing Up Vermont, on a cookbook called The Connecticut Farm Table Cookbook. Through months and months of work, traveling, research, conversations, writing, recipes, photographing, and interviews, they finally put together what we think will soon become the cookbook that every person will need.

The Black Rock Farmers' Market opens this Saturday, 6/7

The Black Rock Farmers’ Market opens this Saturday, 6/7

Access to good, fresh, and healthy food shouldn’t be a privilege, affordable and available to only a select few.  Everyone, no matter where they live, should be able to get produce, meats, and products from local farms and producers.  Not only are these products fresher and fuller of nutrients and vitamins, they are also the solution to our preservative-heavy and pre-frozen society.  Plus, something we love is that by supporting local farmers and producers at these markets, you are supporting local and helping families to make dreams come true…not just helping a CEO afford another McMansion.

So, we’re very excited for Black Rock (that awesome spot between Bridgeport and Fairfield that we called home) because starting this Saturday (and until 10/25), they’ll have their own farmers’ market.  Yup, just come by 481 Brewster Street (right next to St. Ann Church) from 9 to 1 pm on Saturdays and you’ll be able to check out these great farms and products:
