Food Demo at Tosa Farmer's Market

Today marked another food demo at the Tosa farmer's market. I am so proud of Ashleigh and I! Our recipe was cucumber zucchini gazpacho, and it was a hit! We wanted to highlight nutrition facts of the soup as well as talk up our blogs, and passion for all things food. Hello new readers! Lovely to meet you all today!

Let's go through the behind the scenes of the day shall we? We arrived at the market around 7:30 in the morning. The sun was starting to blaze, but that's what we wanted! We were getting our tent set up and getting organized. Here's Ashleigh taking a picture for her blog Funky Beets. Check out her blog to get the recipe of the soup!


Loved the lanterns, nice and bright. I can't wait to get more, my whole living room will soon be covered in them ha!

 
Loved the sign, Ashleigh made this the first time we did a demo for radish salad and kale hummus. Still looks good 2 months later!

 

 
After getting situated at the table, we went inside and started to make the first batch of gazpacho. Look at the chef!

 
What a gorgeous bounty! All of our produce is donated by Kettle Rock farms. What a lovely group of people, we are proud to know them.
 
 
The produce was stunning, here I've begun chopping some yellow squash and green onion.



Isn't this purple pepper the coolest? What a rainbow!



Getting a handful o' stuff to bring back to our table. I have to say there is nothing I would really rather do then spend a Saturday morning spreading food love, cooking with my best friend and being surrounded by other food passionate people.


Getting all set up to start the demo!

 
 What a crowd! Later we heard that it was one of the busiest days at the market which was great for everyone. We went through 100 recipe cards, almost all ingredients, and oodles of business cards.

 
Thanks to photographer Ashleigh, here is the finished product awaiting to be enjoyed by market patrons. We love the farmers market!

I love the way you told the story of our day at the market. The pictures turned out great, so much color! Can't wait to hear what you make with the leftover veggies! For dinner tonight we had tacos with the red peppers and tomatoes from Kettle Rock chopped up with the tempeh "meat," so yum!
