Julie is cordially inviting all of you to come and meet her at the fresh farmer's market. Besides Mama's Glorious Garden, farmer's markets are Julie's favorite places to frequent for fresh foods. She loves meeting and greeting all of the farmers, strolling around an open-outdoor market while supporting and sourcing locally sustainably foods. On today's show, this fresh farmer's market is inspiring Julie to make her marvelous makbouseh, a Lebanese-style summertime squash stew. Meaning to "mix things up," Julie's Makbouseh is a magnificent medley of fresh vegetables along with an array of amazing aromatics that slowly simmer away into a stunning and scrumptious squash stew that is sure to be a staple at your table all summer long. She also prepares and perfectly pairs her homemade and handmade Lebanese pasta tossed in a glorious garlic sauce that just sort of melts in your mouth which is famously known as macaroune b toum. Plus, Julie's first food memory, a childhood favorite of fried squash blossoms called zahrah kousa b maqlieh that Julie is whipping up just for you. Fresh from the farmer's market to a mouthwatering meal, this is one Lebanese masterpiece that you won't want to miss.
