Market Thymes Newsletter - October 21, 2017
New vendor joining us this week. Brewnetti Café is a coffee and tea Barista with an impressive lineup of interesting drinks.
We are into our Winter Markets series now through December 16th. That means vendors both outside on the street and inside the church. You will also find the church concession inside. Note December 2 on your calendar as a day to do some of your Christmas shopping as the Market hold our annual Country Christmas Craft Fair.
The October 28 market is our second annual “Pumpkin Fest”. Planning for the day includes pumpkin decorating for the kids, our cooking demo diva Tara Immell with a special pumpkin recipe, pumpkin putting, decorated pumpkins by donation, antique farm equipment and more.
My first encounter with shakshuka, a North African egg dish flavoured with cumin and hot peppers, was in third year university. Squished into a student kitchen so impractically designed it prevented even the possibility of someone trying to reach over your shoulder and sneak a piece of carrot from your cutting board, my roommate introduced me to the indulgence of tomato-poached eggs smothered in cheddar cheese. Pillowed by onion and tomato, the eggs became a wholly unfamiliar and magical specimen: dense, savoury and filling in a way I just didn’t anticipate. Needless to say I was hooked.
Since then, I’ve started making shakshuka more ‘traditionally’, with ample onion, chili and cumin, topped with a generous handful of cilantro and parsley. Rich, warm and unfailingly comforting, shakshuka is the 15-minute answer to breakfast, lunch or dinner on any busy day. We like ours spicy and buried in herbs, but you can omit the cumin, chili and paprika to make a perfect lunch for your fussy little ones – top with grated cheddar for a guaranteed homerun.
Serves 1-2, but easily scaled up.
