What to Watch: Classy Ladies

By: Sarah De Heer

We're shaking things up on FN Dish. This week, we want you to check out something new and exciting on CookingChannelTV.com: Classy Ladies.

Go on location with Alie Ward and Georgia Hardstark as they consult the experts of the culinary world. Join the ladies as they get a lesson in gelato-making, consult a master oyster assassin, visit the butcher to discover where bacon comes from and more. After the field trip, it's time to put the lessons into practice by serving up themed cocktails and appetizers.

Watch one of my favorite episodes after the jump, where Alie and Georgia go right to the source for their bacon and then turn it into the ultimate cocktail. Want more? Watch more videos of Classy Ladies here.

Market Watch: Fava Beans

Rumor has it they’re incredibly hard to shell so I’ve avoided fava beans in the past. As it turns out I was worried over nothing.

Market Watch: Kohlrabi

Every inch of kohlrabi is edible and packed with fiber, vitamin C, potassium and even some protein.

Market Watch: Sweet Corn

Our previous Summerfest write up on corn got my mouth watering for more of this warm weather veggie. Piles and piles can still be found at my local markets.

Market Watch: Raspberries

Early raspberries are coming into season where I live. I managed to snag the very last half-pint at the farmers’ market this week. As fellow market patrons looked on with envy, I hurried home to make some raz-tastic recipes.

Market Watch: Grapes

Locally grown grapes look different than anything I’ve seen at the grocery store. I picked some up this week to see what they were all about.

Market Watch: Red Plums

Stone fruit like peaches and plums are finding their way to farmers’ markets now. This week’s find from my CSA – these ruby red plums, petite and perfect for snacking.

Market Watch: Apricots

Make the most of these sweet gems while they're in season.

Market Watch: Squash Blossoms

You can find them at the farmers’ markets from late spring to early fall. Squash blossoms are the sweet and tender flowers of growing summer squash. I (very gently) grabbed some and rushed home to cook them my favorite way– stuffed and fried until golden (yes, fried!).
