On Saturday, November 12th from 11:30-2:30, Sam from Farmers and Cook will be hosting a tasting of fresh deli meat. The Massachusetts-based company Farmers and Cook says, “Whether it’s a simple roast or a fancy flavor, it takes real cooking and sometimes lots of real ingredients to get our meats this delicious. When we say an item is natural, that means we don’t use artificial ingredients, painted-on caramel colors, or the other usual tricks of the trade. But we sure do use herbs and spices and things like extra virgin olive oil, cider vinegar, and sometimes even fruit juice or minced vegetables.” Come to meet Sam and try four great deli meats, all of which feature super clean ingredients!
