Restaurant 101: farm-to-table or rooftop-to-tabletop restaurants in Baltimore


One of my favorite things about the summer is the availability of fresh produce and goods from local farmers. One popular tradition is to head to a local farmer’s market to get some of these yummy delights. Not only do we love to see these items on our own plates at home but in restaurants too.

While out on one of my weekend adventures to one of my favorite places to Kayak (Gunpowder State Park) we came across a great farm that offers fresh chicken and vegetables from their farm to your table- Richardsons Farms.

Richards Farms is basically your everyday Farmers Market located on Ebenezer Road in White Marsh (also in historic Northeast Market on Monument Street). When you stop by here you are sure to find great produce as kale, collards and sweet corn, tomatoes, bins of loupes and watermelons, peppers, cukes and even fresh chicken. Only at Richardson's can you get any quantity of chicken/turkey bagged how you like it and cut anyway you like it- 10 pieces, 10 pounds or 10 cases. Plus its a great place to stop you you want to pack a picnic of rotisserie chicken and your favorite sides in the deli.

Not only do they offer what they grow and raise, they also offer local apple cider, fruits, honey, egg noodles, milk, cheese, and ice cream that they have delivered right from other local farms.

My husband and I were like eager children opening gifts as we explored the market. The first thing I steered towards was the sweet corn (1 dozen for $5). My husband found the fresh ice cream and smoked cheddar cheese along with some fresh green beans.

I served the fresh sweet corn at our July 5th cook out (plus numerous times since then) and I am glad that I decided to buy more than just 2 ears per person because those ears of corn got devoured fast than popcorn popping in the microwave. We got two containers of ice cream (chocolate and black raspberry) and it was smooth, rich and creamy- YUM!

There are many local restraunts that use these local farms or even grow their own produce (farm-to-table or rooftop-to-tabletop): click here to find out more about local restaurants

Oh La La for Crepe du Jour

Crepe Valentine
Crepe Valentine
Crepe du Jour is located in the charming Mt. Washington area and was established in 1997 by husband and wife team Mustapha and Donna Snoussi. The Mt. Washington restaurant opened in 2000.

It offers a cozy atmosphere with vivid colors and a friendly staff. You have the option of dining indoors, at one of the front outside café tables or on the year round heated terrace.

The dinner menu offers a variety of 16 savory crepes ranging in prince from $9 to $16. Each crepe offers a blend of fresh veggies, cheese and a protein (seafood, chicken, ham, sausage).

The crepe that won me over for my dinner was Crepe Lorraine with fresh asparagus, onion, brie cheese and prosciutto ham ($11). The presentation was simple yet divine. The asparagus was cooked perfectly (not to crispy yet not too mushy) and the rich, smoothness of the brie blended well with the delicate flavor of onions and the slight smokiness of the prosciutto.

Bake sale to support Share Our Strength to end childhood hunger in America


Nearly 1 in 4 children in America struggle with hunger- that's just about 17 million kids...

Employees of the Domino Sugar Baltimore plant will host a bake sale on Wednesday, July 21st at the Inner Harbor from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., as part of Share Our Strength’s Great American Bake Sale campaign to end childhood hunger in America by 2015.

As a major sponsor of Share Our Strength, Domino Sugar has agreed to match contributions raised at the Baltimore bake sale dollar for dollar.
