Weekly Menu and Farmers Market Finds 8/21 - 8/27/11

Boy, did we have a lovely weekend. The weather was perfect and we capped Sunday night off with another Tour de Farm event. This time it was in conjunction with the Celebrity Chef Tour, a series of dinners around the country to benefit the James Beard Foundation. Last night's dinner was at the Star Prairie Trout Farm in Star Prairie, WI. We ate amazing food cooked by Scott Pampuch, Barton Seaver, Tim McKee, Mike Philips and even Andrew Zimmern of the Travel Channel. Plus we got an informative tour of the farm with lots of information on raising trout. According to the Monterey Bay Seafood Watch, farmed trout is a good choice because of its sustainability and little effect on the environment. As usual, I took lots of pictures, so enjoy the show. Click on any picture to stop the show and read about it.

Another wonderful event! I almost got some Ky farmed trout at our state fair yesterday, but went for KY lamb instead. Love your photos!
