Farmers Market Culinary Demo: Grilled Italia Slice

Today's Farmers Market Culinary Demo-Grilled Italia Slices- was made with all local foods donated by the farmer-vendors.  The aroma of the foods grilling certainly attracted the market guests to our table. The recipe was a simple stacking of whole food ingredients:

  • Squash slice
  • Tomato slice
  • Sweet Italian sausage slice
  • Bella Vita goat cheese-Italian style aged cheese
  • Fresh Basil

Yesterday I went to the sponsoring  farm store kitchen and baked the sausage links to an internal temperature of 160F., then sliced, cooled and refrigerated the sausage slices for transport this morning.  The squash and cheese was also sliced yesterday.  The tomatoes were sliced early today and the basil at the market.  We covered the slices while grilling to melt the cheese.    

Today the assistance from colleagues was much appreciated.  Erika Ford, a Registered Dietitian and member of the WV Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, participated.

My husband-a card carrying Food Handlers member who refers to me as the "Person in Charge"-did the hard job.

Today's water feature was the Strawberry Kiwi recipe from the WVU Extension Families and Health Program.  It was very refreshing!

It was a lovely Saturday morning here in our college town surrounded by our local food friends.
