During Sunday’s podcast we met Kristen and Dylan of Pigeon Cover Ferments. Their sauerkrauts are out of this world delish. Don’t be turned off when we write sauerkraut; theirs is certainly not your run of the mill grocery store sauerkraut. Pigeon Cove Ferments sauerkrauts are simply fermented cabbage made with a variety of seasonings, hand made and in small batches As theirs is not prepared with preservatives, Pigeon Cove Ferments sauerkraut is wonderfully flavorful and is also vitamin C and probiotic-rich.
It is so exciting to see the growing food industry emerging in Gloucester. When purchasing Pigeon Cove Ferments products you are also supporting other local businesses because Dylan and Kristen source all their vegetables from local farms, including Aprilla Farm, Seaview Farm, and Cedar Rock Gardens–hundreds and hundreds of pounds of cabbage for example. Their salt comes from Atlantic Saltworks, which is based out of Gloucester and produces salt from the Atlantic Ocean.
I have to take a second round of doxycycline for tick bite related illnesses; adding probiotics to my diet couldn’t have come at a more timely moment. Immediately after sampling at the podcast, I purchased several jars at Common Crow. The sales person could not have been more complimentary of Pigeon Cove Ferments products. Today I made a grilled cheese with the caraway and pepper flavored sauerkraut. The crunchy kraut contrasted beautifully with the creamy warm cheese. I think I feel better already!

Coming up fast, make sure you get your tickets.

It all started with a simple press release from Anthony announcing Gravy Sunday’s. Around here you’d assume he was prepping for Thanksgiving because you only put gravy on Turkey, right?
But digging a little deeper we find our buddy Anthony from the incredible Tonno Restaurant in the Blackburn Tavern Building is referring to gravy on pasta.
Aaaaaand that’s where all hell breaks loose on the interwebs.
Growing up in a family when Sundays were reserved for Pasta Sugu like most of the Italian/Sicilian Families in Gloucester it’s now come down to a standoff/cook-off between Anthony and Sefatia to defend the honor of their respective Sugo/Gravy traditions.
Danielle served a fabulous array of snacks and treats at Friday evening’s Jintara Nutprasas gallery event. They were so super delicious, I stopped back today and picked up a bag of provisions to bring to a friend on the mend. In addition to her beautiful selection of pastas, You Must Try Danielle’s homemade cheeses, made fresh every Friday, and handmade salami. What did we do on Cape Ann before Danielle opened her friendly doors? Pastaio Via Corta is located at 11 Center Street in Gloucester. Visit Danielle’s website here.

Looking forward to seeing what Corey Matthews and his group has created in the very near future!
