Spring Recipe! Radishes and Feta

Flipping through some old issues of DJ for lunchtime inspiration, we decided to whip up a simple, Spring recipe from Issue No. 7 — “Goats, Gods, Gays.” The original recipe is a radish, mint and goat feta salad. We’ve made some substitutions based on the ingredients we could find at Marlow & Daughters today.

1 bunch radishes
1 small bunch mint, rough chopped
goat feta
extra virgin olive oil

1 bunch radishes
no mint
sheep feta
extra virgin olive oil

We cleaned the radishes and cut them into quarters, saving the greens, crumbled the feta and squeezed out the juice of a lemon and mixed it all together with a little extra virgin olive oil. Instead of topping the salad with mint we made use of the radish greens. We also left off any added salt and pepper since sheep feta is a bit saltier than goat and the radish greens add some spice where the pepper would have.

Bevels, Burrs, Stones and Steels

Yesterday’s knife skills class at This Must Be the Place was a blast! Reynards’ butcher Andrew Dorsey (formerly of Marlow & Daughters) taught Kickstarter backers all about single and double bevels and what to do when you have burrs.

Also, JB Prince knives awesomely donated stones and steels to all participants! We hope to have more classes like this one soon. Stay tuned!
