Chiles at the Alemeda farmers’ market in San Francisco

Lucky me, I’ve spent the last few weeks trotting around — first, a long stop in San Francisco to visit friends and attend a wedding, then a shorter stop in Cambridge, MA, for a yoga workshop. (Didn’t you know I was a New Age-y yoga dork? “Bring me back some patchouli,” said a surprised friend upon learning of my plans.) Unfortunately, my camera seems to have bit the dust (perhaps literally) during the spectacularly lovely wedding of my fashionable friends, so I can’t show you anything I’ve made to eat since I returned home. Instead, I’ll tell you about some upcoming Berkshire county food events. Although I’ve already missed a few — the big tomato-canning session for the Berkshire Food Project at Caretaker Farm was at the top of my list, but was not logistically possible (though Ali Benjamin has a great write-up of the event from 2007) — there are many more wonderful events coming up.
