And also, on MONDAY, at Edina Art Center — A Workshop on the Connection of Pottery and Food. With Robbie Lobell, ceramic artist from Washington State. Robbie specializes in ceramic cookware (flameware) — Beautifully designed, for both function and style! I’ve already purchased a lovely Baking Dish — Simple but stunning. I immediately made a very tasty (yummy) chunky Potato /Mushroom Bake.
The Food — Potato/Mushroom Baked Dish:
This ‘Potato Dish’ is so tasty/addicting — With Yukon Gold potatoes (partially cooked), sauteed leek, smokey bacon, and sauteed mushroom with rosemary. All baked with a bit of Trugole cheese. It makes a great side dish, for dinner, or breakfast. And with Manchego cheese (and maybe Serrano ham), it makes a great Tapas Dish!!
The Pottery / The Workshop:
The ‘Potato Dish’ baked up perfectly in my new Baking Dish. Robbie Lobell’s Cookware is truly designed for all cooking activities and temperatures. I love the integration of functionality with styling. Delightful to work with, bake with, AND present at the table! A few more examples of Robbie’s work (Images from her Web Site).
And the Workshop…. I will definitely be attending the Workshop at Edina Art Center! After all, ‘Pottery-With-Food’ is the reason I write this Blog….
