Local Food: Beets will brighten many salads this winter, but when Steven combines chioggias in a salad with apples and the last spinach of the season, you're enjoying a rare gift. With luck, Harvest Hill Farm in Walden supplies spinach for just a bit longer. Paired with Champlain Orchard apples, the ruby red beets taste even sweeter after a brush with the cold weather. Topped with celery root remoulade and a crumble of Jasper Hill Bayley Hazen blue cheese and walnuts, this crisp salad is a vivid start to your dinner.

Celebrate the Holidays: Whether you're planning a holiday party with your friends at work or a family celebration, or looking for that special gift, remember to think local food. We can work with you for many different types of events, and our gift certificates are a popular gift that your loved ones can enjoy all year.

Around the Galaxy: We are thrilled to welcome legendary editor and author Judith Jones in celebration of her new book The Pleasures of Cooking for One on Tuesday, December 8th. Judith will speak and sign books beginning at 7PM at The Galaxy Bookshop and join us at Claire's for an informal reception following the event at the bookstore. The book is a treasure trove of Judith Jones' favorite recipes, from light salads to desserts. Buy it now and try out a few recipes before her visit! And you can read about Judith's experience raising cattle in Walden here.
