La Boite à Lunch de Ju

Local food

Since we moved to Seattle three years ago, we have been trying to shop more and more local and organic. The idea was also to cook with local ingredients (sometimes very different from what was available in Paris). It has also forced us to change our culinary habits a bit and to find new seasonal menus. I must say that I have re-discovered some recipes and vegetables. Here is one of the big surprise for me: carrots. I always thought a carrot is a carrot, taste should not change that much. But here in my local store, I have discovered this carrot. I mean look at that, it looks like my grandma’s garden vegetable! And it taste amazing. This carrot’ season only last a month but they are divine!

Depuis que nous avons déménagé à Seattle, il y a trois ans, nous avons essayé d’acheter de plus en plus de produits locaux et biologiques. Il faut dire que nous avons à notre disposition des magasins bien fournis et à prix relativement abordable, surtout comparé à Paris. Nous avons dû changer un peu nos habitudes culinaires et avons choisi d’adapter nos menus aux saisons. Nous avons aussi redécouvert certains gouts. Une carotte est une carotte me direz-vous ? Et bien regardez celle-là! On dirait qu’elle sort du jardin (oui c’est vrai, mais pas du mien) et elle a un gout absolument incroyable ! La saison ne dure qu’un mois mais on l’attend avec impatience tous les ans.
