We’ve been staying busy with helping plan the summer Flavors of Northwest Iowa events, making appearances at the local farmers’ markets, visiting with local producers and touring farms, and this past week we did our first food demo! We bought all our produce we could for the food demo at the Sioux City Farmers’ Market and made a few slight changes to the recipe based on what produce is currently available as well as what equipment could be utilized at our demo site.
With Farmers' Markets now in full swing for the summer, Christel, Emily, and I have found ourselves traveling across Region 1 for some Fun with Food Tastings. This past weekend we spent the morning at the Lakes Area Farmers Market in Spirit Lake, Iowa.
