The food featured this month at the Whole Foods Market Supper Club event could be described as the perfect meal. Local Foodies will enjoy Arugula with Pears, Aged Gouda and Hot Bacon Vinaigrette, followed by Smoked Pork Roast with Roasted Root Vegetables, Southern Style Collard Greens and a Tart Apple Crisp topped with Homemade Crème Fraîche. Better yet, the recipes for these appetizing dishes come from Tennessee farmers. You can be a part of this delicious event on January 23rd. Hosted by Chef Michael Martin, the meal will feature food from local farms created with recipes from the Franklin Farmers Market’s Eating in Season cookbook. As a longtime ally of local farms, the Whole Foods Market has supported the Franklin Farmers Market for several years. The Franklin Farmers Market’s motto of “Real Farmers, Real Food, Real Good” is a natural tie-in with Whole Foods Market’s “Values Matter” campaign. Both organizations have a strong commitment to supporting sustainable agriculture and local communities.
Besides enjoying this delicious supper, Chef Michael will also explain how you too can create such a meal, with tips and info on using whole, nutrient dense foods prepared with healthy methods. You’ll also have the opportunity to purchase a copy of the Franklin Farmers Market’s cookbook, Eating in Season. The recipes for Whole Foods Market’s January Supper Club are inspired by the cookbook, along with many other delicious recipes featuring seasonal produce which will allow you to prepare the perfect meal year-round with fresh food from local farms.
