A new magazine has arrived in Boston dedicated to educating local readers to shop, cook, eat and appreciate foods that are locally grown in our region.
This month the new quarterly called Edible Boston, publishes its second edition and it is as beautiful and informative as the first.
There are articles ranging from Heritage Breed Turkeys, a Farmer's Diary written by John Lee the manager of Allendale Farm, to The history and the future of apples in our region as well as several articles on kids.
The articles on kids and food ranges from Food Marketing and Childhood Obesity to one on a great program called CitySprouts, a non-profit,non-governmental group that has helped six Cambridge schools to build and maintain their own vegetable gardens. Teaching kids that their food doesn't just come from the neighborhood mega box retailer, not to mention out of a cardboard box, is a great way to start them thinking about what they eat and showing them the satisfaction you can get from growing your own food.
ABC's of cooking is about turning that raw product into dinner and that is where my job comes in.
The article talks about schools in the area that cater to teaching children to cook. They interviewed us over the summer at create-a-cook and also spoke to CSCA who run a great series of cooking classes during the summer geared towards kids aged 6 - 16.
