Garden Variety Cooking

Garden Variety Cooking

Season 2 - Episode 10

​​​Farm-to-table cooking is mighty popular these days, but unless we have our own backyard garden, farm-to-table is often easier said than done. That’s why chef/host David Jackson stands in front of a corn field to introduce us to Episode 10, entitled “Garden Variety Cooking.” In this episode David emphasizes the plant-based, but not necessarily plant-exclusive theme of many of his recipes.  

With freshly-shucked ears straight from the field, our host prepares a delectable Sweet Corn Hash enhanced with red onion, red and green bell pepper, and a splash of cider vinegar for a stunningly tasty and satisfying vegetable side dish. He’ll also prepare a medley of garden-fresh veggies in two other distinctively low fat, low sodium recipes. First, a lettuce-free Raw Vegetable Salad. Then a savory Spanish vegetable stew, or Pisto, that oozes with healthy olive oil and scents the kitchen with garlic and fresh herbs.  

Our doctors may be telling us to cut down on bacon and burgers and barbecue, but there’ll be fewer reprimands whenever we do more “Garden Variety Cooking!”
