A Bowl of Cherries

I’m not much of a fruit person, otherwise I’d have bought some. At $4 a pint, they’re not cheap.

This week’s Greenmarket haul: fromage blanc, cow’s milk ricotta, tomatoes, bread, cavolo nero, Japanese turnips, herbs, eggs, butter, cod, potatoes, radishes, summer squash and FAVA BEANS!!!

I’m in the process of drafting this week’s menu. Stay tuned.


  1. Argh. Those aren’t sour cherries are they? Because if so, I’m very jealous. I can never find them when I want them, and I am jonesing for a sour cherry pie.

    But enough of my jealousy – I can’t wait to see what you do with those fava beans. Yum.


    • Hi Suzanne.

      No, they’re not sour cherries — at least I don’t think so.

      Right now I’m thinking of either fava bean risotto or maybe stewed fava beans (with prosciutto, shallot and sucrine).

      Breakfast this morning was eggs sunnyside-up with heirloom tomato and cucumber salad and toasted levain.
