Nothing says Summer better than fresh corn. Sweet, crispy and succulent, I’m always looking for new ways to prepare it. This recipe is courtesy of Ken Oringer, one of Boston’s top chefs and owner of one of the best (and my favorite) restaurants, Toro
Can’t wait to make this cheesy corn salsa!
Microwave for 1 minute or blanche in a pot of boiling water for 2 min. 2 cups of fresh corn until tender but not soft.
In a bowl with the corn, stir in 1/2 cup of queso fresco or Mexican cotija cheese
1/3 cup mayo
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
Salt + pepper to taste
serve over tacos, chips or salad
Nothing better than a cool bowl or glass of Summer Gazpacho. I make it in the style I enjoyed in Spain. Super easy and oh so healthy and delish!

In honor of our founder Seth’s birthday, a Dirt Cake to replicate the farm was created. It was as delicious as it was cute (and accurate!) Check out the recipe…
Chocolate “Dirt” Cake
You can of course make the cake from scratch, but I used a box mix of Devil’s Food Duncan Hines and Chocolate Icing in a can.
1 Bag of oreos
Either Piriouette chocolate straw cookies (you can also use Pretzel logs)
To decorate: gummy worms, strawberries & flowers, red hots (look like tomatoes), candy rocks, fresh mint
Crush the bag of oreos until fine in a food processor (the white cream will disappear)
Ice the bottom layer of the cake and sprinkle a light layer of the cookies
Place the second layer of cake and ice the top
Sprinkle a thick layer of cookies on top of the fresh and moist icing (sticks better)
Ice the sides and as you ice, stick a twig cookies on using additional icing as glue, do this all around the cake
Pour remaining cookie crumbs on top and add rows of red hots, rocks and worms. Stick the berries and flowers on tooth picks and insert. Using fresh mint add around the flowers and berries so it looks like leaves.
2 Lbs Of Tomatoes (Dark Red, Plums Or Mix Of Varieties)
1 T Cumin
Kosher/Sea Salt (To Taste)
1 Sweet Onion
Fresh Corn Optional
- Ideally made in a food processor LIGHTLY processed
- Cut tomatoes in quarters
- Put in a bunch of tomatoes along with handful of cilantro, handful of onions. CHOP for a few seconds.
- Add salt, pepper, squeeze of lime, cumin and tiny bit of jalapeno
- CHOP again.
- Keep doing this and taste as you go along to balance salt, lime and hot peppers
- Consistency should be a fine chop, small pieces but not too runny
