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: 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: Fiddleheads

They sure are funny-looking, but fiddleheads are a truly unique market find. They’re only available for a few short weeks a year so get ‘em while you can!

Pick up a few varieties of these delicate Autumn gems next time you're at the market.

Market Watch: Artichokes

It's worth breaking through artichokes' spiky exteriors to get to their delicately flavored leaves and hearts.

Market Watch: Kohlrabi

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

Market Watch: Beets

Beets may not seem all that exciting but when these babies turn up at the farmers’ market, all I can think about is making my Roasted Beet Risotto. It uses both beets and their greens and makes for a perfect vegetarian meal.

Market Watch: Cauliflower

It may seem like a boring, ordinary veggie, but cauliflower has extraordinary flavor and it’s packed with nutrients – go snatch some up at your farmers market this week.

Market Watch: Tomatillos

Here’s what to do with fresh tomatillos from the local farmers market.

Keep an eye out for these tangy little fruits encased in papery husks next time you're at the farmers market.
