We held our first Wallyhood Food Swap on Saturday at Chez Wallyhood on Saturday, and it was a smashing success. We had about 20 people participate, bringing (and please forgive me the ones I’ve forgotten): beet shallot vinaigrette, kale pesto, basil pesto, limoncello, pale ale, pickled beets, pickled string beans, stevia, infused butters, carrot onion slaw, chocolate truffles, granola, chili tequila, humus, fresh eggs, Philthy Sanchez sauce, cheesey balled goodness, sour cream, cheese cake, avocado garbanzo chocolate cake (no, really, awesome), nectarine jam, peppercorn shortbread, and Wallyhood Honey (natch).
While the swapping filled our larders with a greater variety of homemade yummies than we could possibly concoct on our own in a year, the real bonus was meeting so many like-minded neighbors. Thanks everyone who made it out, and yes, we will be holding another one, probably come summer when there’s a bounty of backyard crops coming ripe. If anyone wants to kick another one up in the meantime, give us a shout and we’ll put the out word.
