Cooking at the farmers market in Piermont on September 4, 2011

If you are looking for locally grown great produce, local wines, breads, you should visit the Piermont farmer’s market this coming Sunday. I will be showing how to make a very easy and flavorful Turkish breakfast dish called “Melemen”.

It is a dish mainly made out of onions, hot (or bell peppers), tomatoes and eggs sauteed in olive oil.

You can purchase the ingredients for this dish right at the market.

Come and see me at the market. I will be there from 10 to 12!
