Weekend In Norfolk

Weekend In Norfolk

We are super excited for all the festivities this weekend! There is so much to do in town and we will be busy ourselves with the farmers market, cook the market, and a garden open house on Sunday (2-4PM!). We hope to see you at all or any of these but if life just gets too busy, we'll understand. So in case you miss us, here are the recipes from tomorrow's cook the market.

Grilled Corn, Tomatillo and Shishito Pepper Salsa with Steak

  • 3 ears corn

  • 1 pint tomatillos, husks removed

  • 1 pint shishito peppers

  • 1 jalapeno pepper

  • 1/2 bunch scallions

  • 1 clove garlic, smashed

  • 1 bunch cilantro

  • Juice from 1 lime

  • Olive oil, salt and pepper

With your grill at medium high heat lightly oil the ears of corn and place whole on the grill turning to char all sides. Also toss the shishitos, jalepeno and tomatillos in olive oil and grill until nice and charred. Cut the corn off the cobs into a bowl. Roughly chop the tomatillos and shishitos and add them to corn. Add chopped scallions, garlic and cilantro. Squeeze in lime juice and season with salt and pepper. Serve over your favorite grass fed grilled steak from Lone Silo Farm.

Smokey Tomato Bruschetta

  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 1 small sweet red or yellow pepper
  • 1/2 cup basil, chiffonade (thinly sliced)
  • 1/2 cup parsley, chiffonade
  • 1 bunch red scallions, tops removed and reserved for another dish
  • Olive oil, salt and pepper
  • Red wine vinegar
  • Smoked paprika
  • Baguette or other crusty bread
  • 1 clove garlic

Toss the cherry tomatoes, scallions and pepper in olive oil and heat on a hot grill. When nice and charred roughly chop. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and dress with olive oil, vinegar, smoked paprika, salt and pepper.

Slice baguette and brush each slice on both sides with olive oil, rub with a cut clove of garlic and grill over high heat. Schmear each slice with Lost Ruby Smoking Hot Chevre and top with bruschetta.
