If you're in the Austin area this weekend, come join me at the Chef Demo tent, Texas Farmers' Markets, on Saturday at the Lakeline location from 10am-12noon, and Sunday at the Mueller location from 11am-1pm, for what promises to be a delicious dish.
Softshell crab, one of my favorite things in THE WORLD, is in season right now, and K&S Seafood will have plenty on hand. They're giving a few up for lucky market-goers to taste and learn how to select, clean, and prepare these tasty treasures.
They'll be served with creamy, cheesy, cornmeal polenta, courtesy of Organicare Farms, who will also share their delectable cured pork for the accompanying smothered collard greens, also from the market.
You'll be able to select all of these ingredients from market vendors to duplicate your own meal at home.
Look for these recipes on Notes from Maggie's Farm next week. If you'd like to get a head start, and learn a little more about each component of the dish, check out these handy videos, below.
I hope to see you at the markets!
