Welcome to Placer County Real Food

Every Sat­ur­day morn­ing, Laura and Joanne met at the local farm­ers’ mar­ket to learn what kinds of fresh, local and in-season foods were avail­able for that week. They pur­chased all the meat, fruit, veg­eta­bles and nuts to pre­pare a meal for eight on the fol­low­ing Mon­day. As each from-scratch recipe was pre­pared, care­ful notes were taken.  The result, 52 deli­cious home-style din­ners were held at Joanne’s home that year.

Joanne hopes to get peo­ple excited about cook­ing and eat­ing healthy, great tast­ing food that’s gen­tle on the envi­ron­ment and sup­ports local farm­ing businesses.

We are for­tu­nate to live in a region where deli­cious fresh fruits, meats and veg­eta­bles ren­der them­selves abun­dantly all year round. Joanne and Laura have pro­vided a valu­able ser­vice in cre­at­ing these fan­tas­tic recipes that enable us to enjoy fresh, healthy, local foods at all times of year.” ~ Assem­bly­man Ted
