I went to the Dekalb Farmers Market yesterday to pick up some produce. I bought a couple of items I've never tried before. I read about these foods in The Kind Diet. If there's one thing I love, it's trying new food. I've loved this from the time I was born, I think. I never met a food I couldn't at least appreciate. Except for this seafood eyeball salad I mistakenly ordered in Paris once.
I took a few photos of the veggies. Man, how cheap! Does anyone know where I can get locally grown produce, though?? It seems most of the food at the Dekalb market is from California or abroad.
Here's an unfamiliar veggie I bought. It's called Daikon. I'll let you know what I think when I cook it.
kabocha squash. I didn't realize I'd tried this before, but I have and let me tell you, it is a melt-in-your-mouth, under-publicized vegetable. I once had a squash risotto in San Francisco, and I wondered how they got the squash so luxuriously silky. Well, I now know they were using kabocha squash.
