Chefs A' Field: Kids On The Farm
Seed-Saving & Heirloom Veggies: Chef Joseph Wrede
Joseph's Table Restaurant - Taos, NM; Rancho la Paz Farm - Santa Fe, NM Considered one of the Southwest's modern culinary pioneers, Chef Joseph Wrede creates classic dishes with "chili pepper flair" at Taos' esteemed Joseph's Table restaurant. The chef and his two children pull on their boots for a day of discovery at Rancho la Paz, a tiny but glorious farm nestled along the Rio Grande in the southern Rocky Mountains. As they attempt to sample 96 kinds of tomatoes, 32 types of basil and 47 varieties of sweet and spicy peppers, the bounty is ripe for the picking at this experimental organic farm. In a magical tunnel of gourds, the children are transported to the pages of a fairytale where their eyes pop with amazement. As Chef Wrede helps his kids plant next season's harvest, they get a lesson in how to nurture and preserve seeds for the future. Recipes: Seven-Tomato Gazpacho; Seared Herbed Shrimp; Heirloom Carrot & Beet Sauced Fish.
