“Food is our common ground, a universal experience.”
November may be one of my favorite flavor months (at least one of twelve). White acorns are ready for processing and gray pumpkins are in abundance. The ingredients that are available are complex and rich in history. Because of circumstance, I will be gone for the first part of the month presenting at the Community Food Security Coalition’s 15th Annual Conference. The theme of this year’s conference will be, “Honoring our roots and growing a movement”. I hope to bring the flavors of our South Platte watershed there and some of Oakland’s history back. I have also employed Sweet Action Ice Cream to be helping out with this month’s menu. It should make for an interesting November Cocina Campesina dinner. Please mark your calendars and reserve a spot for the November 19, 2011 meal. Teaser menus this month will be sent out via e-mail instead of post.
