Cajun Comforts Recipes

From organic Andouille sausage, Bell peppers, and okra to light and fluffy corn muffins, the soulful flavors of the deep South await this week, blending beautifully with Pacific Northwest produce like peppery arugula greens, rhubarb, leeks, radishes and spring onions. Inspired by our recent cooking class here at the farm with Matt Lewis of Where Ya At Matt?, who has kindly shared the recipe to his famous gumbo with us (see recipes), this comforting box also includes farm-fresh eggs, citrus fruit and our signature chicken stock to complement the spread. Enjoy!

Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:

Matt Lewis’ Chicken & Andouille Sausage Seafood Gumbo
This recipe is kicky with big, bold flavor and comes straight from the expert himself: Matt Lewis of Where Ya At Matt? (Do note that this will make a party-size amount of gumbo; scale down the ingredients to craft a smaller batch.)

Buttery Braised Leeks
Accented with just a squeeze of lemon, these sublime leeks are a worthy side dish to this week’s red gumbo.

Cara Cara Orange Salad with Arugula & Fennel
This crisp, citrus-kissed salad is both bold in flavor and beautiful in presentation.

Summering in France Recipes

Cool, classic and colorful, Salade Niçoise is the hallmark of summer in France, layered with fresh produce like tender-crisp lettuce, green beans and fingerling potatoes, and accents like hard-boiled eggs and protein-rich tuna. Thus, your box this week honors Bastille Day with local ingredients to create your own version of the famous salad, plus summery herbs and produce, creamy chevre cheese from Lost Peacock farm, dry organic rosé wine, a fresh baguette and even apricots. Enjoy!

The Italian Summer Recipes

The Italian summer calls to mind visions of beautiful wine, homemade pasta, and garden-fresh produce simply and beautifully prepared. Hence, this week’s box captures the flavors of summer by way of Italy with handmade semolina bucatini noodles to toss with Skagit River Ranch Italian sausage, plus fresh, creamy fior di latte mozzarella-style cheese from Ferndale Farmstead Creamy. Also included for this relaxed, refreshing meal: Pain au Levain bread, red wine, and a colorful assortment of summer produce that includes Little Gem lettuces, golden beets, English shelling peas, rainbow parsley, salad burnet, chives, cauliflower, sweet cherries, and much, much more.
