THE SECOND ANNUAL
Join the farmers, foragers, and chef of Springwater Farm in celebrating the peak of the truffle season as Valentines Day draws near. Submit a haiku, waxing poetic on the subject of truffles, in the “comments” of this blog post to be entered into the contest. Winners will be announced February 14th, and prizes can be claimed at the Springwater Farm Booth at the Hillsdale Farmers Market (or at PFM when they open in March).
For more on truffles, including a tutorial and a couple of recipes, check out my post on last season’s GSNW blog: “Eat Something Sexy!” or stay tuned to the Farmer’s Feast – just today I brought home some truffles (some truffles! a perk of cooking for a truffle forager -) and Ancient Heritage Dairy Elk Lake cheese. I plan to experiment with a truffled fonduta recipe very soon!
Need a little assistance getting started? The 2010 entries can be found here, and below is the 2010 grand prize winning haiku, submitted by Mary Kay Gehring. Good Luck!
