Eastside Road, May 18, 2013—OUR LOCAL FARM MARKET opened for the season two or three weeks ago, but we'd been on the road those Saturday mornings, and unable to attend. This morning we were there. So was Nancy Skall, whose asparagus you see; and Lou Preston, who provided the spring onion; and Dave — or, rather, his daughter: Dave was out on the sea, fishing. He'd caught this salmon yesterday. Delicious.
We began with guacamole, made from Jim Churchill's avocados, which we picked up in Ojai ten days ago or so. And with radish, cilantro, lime skin and juice, an habañera pepper, and a shallot. Delicious.
Dessert: a bowl of Lou's strawberries.
