Local eggs get special attention during the month of March for ASAP’s Get Local campaign—a year-round initiative that brings together farmers, chefs, and community members in celebration of a featured local food. Area chefs prize local eggs for their rich taste and bright, creamy yolks, making eggs the stars of their dishes and key background players in all manner of baked goods and desserts. http://asapconnections.org/find-local-food/get-local/
Appalachian Grown™ partner restaurants are planning a variety of specials this month to celebrate. We buy local eggs from Farside Farm located right outside of Asheville in Alexander, NC. Mike Brown owns Farside Farm and he makes sure that all of the animals on his farm have access to open space and clean air. At the bakery we plan to use his eggs to make some fantastic March Specials. On the savory side we’ll be making Fresh Egg Salads with spring herbs, and our famous Egg Sandwiches on homemade Biscuits and Bagels, in addition to other seasonal specials. If dessert is what you want – look for our Banana Pudding, Lemon Custard Pie, or Chocolate Chip Meringue Cookies!
