Carole’s Concoctions:
Spring Vegetables

Hope springs eternal and oh, so happy for those first green vegetables of spring - asparagus, watercress and artichokes.  While not all are grown here in Massachusetts, they are the spring veggies that you can find in abundance in the grocery store. Over the last few days, I have enjoyed making watercress soup, asparagus polonaise and baby artichokes.

I hope you enjoy these and please share your concoctions and versions!

Listen in to Part 2 of Food Memory Lane with AnneMarie DeFreest as she illustrates the importance of paprika to her favorite Savory Hungarian recipes  - Goulash and Chicken Paprikash and talks about the importance of knowing what kind of paprika(smoked, sweet, hot and more) and where it came from would go into different Hungarian recipes.  She also tells us about her favorite Hungarian sweets – Kifli and Kalacs -  whose recipes, techniques, and variations she learned as a child from her Aunt Betty.

Heirloom Meals Radio:
AnneMarie DeFreest Part 1

My best friend, AnneMarie DeFreest, joins me in Stockbridge for Part 1 of her 2 part show.   While AnneMarie's most vivid food memories are passed to her from her father Jack Simko and his Hungarian heritage, the pleasure and importance of gathering at the table with cloth napkins and everyone in their specific seat, has left its own important set of memories and practices for her.  As she and her siblings grew up and her father took over the cooking from her mother AnneMarie was able to experience again the smells and tastes she remembers of her Grandfather's cooking of recipes like Kifli and Kalacs and expose her own children to these recipes which had been so important to her upbringing.  Listen in to hear her stories of growing up and savoring her paternal Hungarian food heritage in Part 1 and to Part 2 for more about the recipes she savors.
