St. Helena Farmers’ Market: Host a Kebab Night for Your Friends | Lifestyles

Catherine Gold

Hosting a kebab party is a fun way for your guests to prepare their own meal with items of their choosing.

Pull these skewers out of the back of the kitchen drawer (soak the wooden ones in water before using) or use sprigs of rosemary to add a little flavor. Try combos like Sonoma County Meat Company Beef (pre-cut for ease), Wild West Fungi Mushrooms, and Pre-Boiled Baby Potatoes. Large wild shrimp from Santa Rosa Seafood with squash and onions from Triple T Ranch and Farm also make a tasty combo.

Brush lightly with Anzalone olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Combine the lemon juice, coarsely chopped garlic and chopped fresh rosemary and brush the mixture over the skewers.

For a lovely dessert, combine strawberries from Tu Universo Farms and chocolate brownie pieces from Patisserie Angelica and drizzle with a mixture of balsamic vinegar and brown sugar. Grill and enjoy!

Children’s Storytime will be hosted by Melissa Brown (School Resource Officer for the St. Helena Unified School District) and Amanda Tuttle at 9:30 a.m. Be sure to drop by and say goodbye to Amanda as this is her last market with us as a Market Educator.
