More local food news

Last Friday I got to visit the campus of Sunset magazine and wandered around its absolutely lovely test garden, where vegetables, herbs, flowers, and more grow in beautiful profusion. Talking with their food editor, Margo True, I learned that the August issue would feature this garden as part of an 18-month-long project: the One-Block Feast. During those months, the staff grew or produced all the food on site that they wanted for a summertime celebration, including grapes (they pressed their own wine!), honey from beehives, salt, olive oil, and eggs from some adorable red chickens housed in the garden. It's an inspiring story, with lots of good ideas for getting closer to your food. Maybe I'll try growing edamame, which they say has a high yield, because I love this recipe for Edamame, Cranberry, and Feta Salad.
