A Local Thanksgiving

Growing up in New England, our nation's history is everywhere you look. George Washington really did sleep here! A trip to Plimouth (Plymouth) Plantation as a child was very exciting. Actors in period costumes transport your imagination back to what it must have been like. Those Pilgrims who did survive the first year on the salty coast celebrated their hearts out with the bounty of their harvest.

Truly, the first stewards of our land, the Native Americans living on the Coast of Massachusetts educated the Pilgrims on the importance of being a "locavore". The Wampanoag tribes had been living on the bounty of the coast for generations, fish, eels, lobster, clams, wild turkey, squash, corn, and many indigenous foods were caught or cultivated. Without the help of one particular Native American named Squanto, the Pilgrims who survived the first year would not have survived the second.

Are you looking for a way to celebrate Turkey Day in a local way?

Luckily we live in an area of America that has so much good local food, it will be easy!

Check out my list of websites to the right, you will be able to locate purveyors of local foods very easily! Since our local artisan food community is so supportive of each other, several local products can often be found at one location!

Let's start with an appetizer that makes use of our locally available foods.

Appetizer Idea:
Rogue Creamery Oregon Blue Cheese
Pennington Farms Fig Jam
Deux Chats Bakery Crostini
Unwrap the blue cheese and let sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes to "bloom".
Spread a little Blue Cheese onto the crostini and top with a dollop of Fig Jam.
Wash it all down with a stand -up red such as Roxy Ann Claret or Red Lily Temperanillo.

About Me

My photo
Cincinnati, OH, United States
A dedicated foodie, with a passion for the best food. Favorite food crushes include; Cheese, Wine, Breads, Seafood, anything made with eggs, ...there's actually no point in a list, there isn't much out there I don't have a crush on. Transplanted from the Northeast at age 18, a whole new frontier of food was opened up to me. I have fished for Salmon, hunted for mushrooms, cracked open fresh oysters from the sea and devoured them on the spot. Figs, pears, peaches, so many indigenous jewels! I dedicate this BLOG to the endless variety this region provides. My hope is to live here for a very long time & continue to discover and experience it's unique bounty! Alas, my life has now taken me to Cincinnati, OH where the food culture is like none I have ever experienced.
