Heirloom Meals Radio:
Teresa Tavares

Today in the studio we had with us Teresa Tavares who was born in the Azores (more specifically, the island of Terceira) which is an archipelago located nearly half way between the U.S. and Portugal. If Teresa taught us one thing about Portugese food, it's that you can never have too much sea salt in your pantry, and onions and garlic for that matter too! What made her interview truly unique for us was how much she had to say about the use of veggies and meats in traditional dishes more than seafood which we had believed to be more of a culinary staple. Listen in and let your mouth water as Teresa describes the heirloom Al Cathra clay pot, her special steak recipe, family-famous rice pudding, and much much more.

Life at Boulderwood:
Retreat from the Heat?

Just when we thought we were going to see a repeat of last summer, which brought us nothing but clouds and rain, we get hit with this tropical heat!  Will the Berkshires ever get the clement climate it deserves?  The animals at Boulderwood are just as curious but are certainly adept at finding cool solutions. 
The chickens trade the sun-struck grass for dusty barn floors...


The cows commune under the shade of trees and marvel at how the horses....


just don't seem to care....
