Alex is putting her spin on the family recipes and Taylor attends culinary school. Our favorite pickle of the day, was definitely the Chili Infused Pickles. The Olive Tapenade is a local must have for table snacks on "Game Day": like the World Cup today between Italy and England.
Other bites that tickled our tongue, was Paolo's Kitchen prepared frozen Italian "Market Trays". Known for their catering and using fresh local produce in these frozen meals, Paolo's has become a weekly staple at Hoboken Farmer's Market. Marketing Manager, Lenny, explained for best results: let the trays thaw naturally on the kitchen counter before cooking. Lenny also explained: Paolo's makes their own pasta and has gluten free options.
Culinary Centerfold tried Paolo's Eggplant Rollatini and Meat Lasagna at Hoboken Farmer's Market... and we could not tell it was frozen food! We highly suggest to stock up on Paolo's "Market Trays" every weekend and save time cooking during the week.
Hoboken Farmer's Market was filled with gorgeous produce from Stony Hill Farms. Everything from fresh garlic, rhubarb, onions, peppers, radishes, and a variety of lettuces were available.
These unique butters are a perfect way to linger at breakfast on the weekend. Think a Western Omelet, with local Peppers from Stony Hill , toast with Cherry Butter and a spicy Bloody Mary. Definitely a foodie way to recover after a night in Hoboken.
Culinary Centerfold was "pickled" pink to find Lizzmonade. They have become our summer love affair with customized lemonade. Lizzmonade sources local ingredients and gives you options on how to get sweet: from agave, stevia, super fine sugar... or you can go naked! (Wink, no sugar). The Lizzmonade crew act like personal mixologist: as they scoop, muddle and mix fresh squeezed lemon juice to perfection.
I would love to hear from you. Make sure to visit Hoboken Farmer's market and tweet me @CulinaryCMag your favorite finds!
