Whole Foods Market was present. They brought their best stuff.
The show this year was nothing like former years. Lots of
corporate and intensely commercial operations took much of the cozy,
local and genuine excellence out of the mix. Barely a farm in sight and so many of
the most excellent vendors absent.
Shore Catch is a vendor at Rittenhouse Square's Saturday Market. This past Saturday I could not pass up the juicy whelks and tile fish. I roasted the fish with spices and butter and steamed the whelks then sauteed them off with garlic, parsley, cucarachas and lemon, This pic not so great but this dish was a delight.
The Shore Catch ingredients were superb. The dish was fantastic because of the ingredients.
I plan to make a few escargot tarts this weekend using the old Frog Restaurant recipe with spinach, nuts and Pernod. The recipe is not in the Frog Commissary cookbook so if Chef Maranville or any of the cooks from back in the day remember those details ...I could use a lil help?
