If you’re still looking for ideas for how to use all of this local goodness in your holiday meals, here are a few online sources for recipes with a Northwest flavor:
Island foodie Anne Willhoit’s Small Potatoes
blog features some great Thanksgiving recipes, including a foolproof recipe for Just Pumpkin Pie
, where you start with a real pumpkin rather than a can.
The Cascade Harvest Coalition has compiled a huge collection of fabulous Thanksgiving recipes
as part of their Eat Local for Thanksgiving
campaign. Roasted Root Vegetables with Hazelnuts, Chèvre and Cranberry Vinaigrette and Butternut Squash Gingerbread
are just two of more than 50 recipes gleaned from local chefs and farmers.
Last year local food writer Rebekah Denn, then with the dearly-departed Seattle PI, put together a stellar collection of recipes
. From Nash’s Carrot Soup with Mt. Townsend Camembert Cream to Theo Chocolate Pecan Pie, oh my.
And the still-surviving Seattle Times offers up an eclectic group of holiday recipes
from Seattle-area chefs, including one from Island resident and culinary wiz Greg Atkinson for a “Farro-sotto
,” a twist on risotto made with Bluebird Farms farro from east of the mountains.
Patricia and John at Cook Local
have collected (and tested and photographed) Thanksgiving recipes tailored to what’s local right now in Puget Sound. Scalloped Potatoes and Parsnips
received their hearty endorsement, and their Pan-Roasted Delicata With a Kick
will ensure that your taste buds stay awake all the way through dinner.
