What you see on the picture above is the Edible Vineyard. Its insides inspire me every time I hold it in my hand, with a notepad in the other hand, taking notes. Of course, it’s filled with local talent not only in the food industry, but writers with a passion for eating, for ingredients, and for scouting out the best stories on Martha’s Vineyard.
And below, you see two components I can’t live without. Not only for the execution of this recipe, but for the execution of MY LIFE. The moment the Sriracha is half way, I have to go to the store and buy another bottle. My mind goes into overdrive thinking – what if they run out? what if the store decides to stop selling it and i run out and have to wait for it to come via mail since i’d totally have to order it online?! – yeah. That’s how my brain thinks, only a tiiiiny bit faster and sometimes in Spanish. And honey? Honey I just have to have it because it’s the only way I sweeten my savory dishes. Granulated sugar belongs in baking, not in cooking? Maybe in my book.
So Sriracha and Honey, and the inspiration from Edible Vineyard made this Summer Fest edition SO much easier. The gorgeous photography in the locally produced magazine is fantastic (unlike my own!) and the recipes really touch you. Be sure to check out where you can get your hands on your local edition and immerse yourself in the Edible world.
