The Birdie Cake

This tribute to the olive harvest was created for the birthday of a very dear friend. Light-as-a-feather, extra virgin olive oil sponge layers are brushed with even more olive oil, then filled with bright kumquat conserve and olive oil buttercream. Judicious sprinklings of salt along the way and a final coat of chocolate make this one of my all-time favorite celebration cakes. Find the recipe here.

Wondering What's in Season?

Thanks to the folks at CUESA for their very useful Seasonality Charts for VEGETABLES and FRUITS & NUTS, SEAFOOD, and FLOWERS!

What are EBT, WIC, MM, and VRx?

EBT: Most farmers’ markets offer Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT), electronic system for the food stamp program.

MM: Market Match provides EBT customers token or voucher incentives to shop at farmers’ markets and spend their federal benefits on fresh fruits, nuts, and vegetables. Available seasonally. Contact individual organizations for details.

WIC: The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children serves to safeguard the health of low-income women, infants, and children up to age 5 who are at nutritional risk, by providing nutritious foods to supplement their diet.
