AÂ fascinatingÂ peekÂ into the items that 11 New York chefs keep in their refrigerators at home. Randomly,Â two of the chefs had Asian Kit Kat candy bars in their fridges. And one of the chefs has to tape his refrigeratorÂ door shut to keep his cat from opening it and stealing meat from inside. Who says cats aren’t smart?
We’re intrigued by Mark Bittman’s recommended “vegan before 6 p.m.” diet (actually more of a lifestyle) that helped him lose weight, reduced his cholesterol and blood sugar and cured his sleep apnea. As Bittman points out, “Science says that we should be eating more foods from the plant kingdom and less processed food and fewer animal products.” Adding more fruits and vegetables to our diet certainly can’t hurt, so we bought his new cookbook for recipes and inspiration.
We are fortunate to be able to procure those fruits and vegetables at a farmer’s market within walking distance of our condo. And we can look here for a preview ofÂ what fruits and veggies will be at their peak in the coming months. Type the name of the fruit or veg in the search bar, or click on the “what’s in season right now” link to get information for the current month. The green areas show peak ripeness, yellow means less ripe and red means the fruit or veg is not in season.
