Community-Supported Cooking

Julienne

Inspired by community-supported agriculture (CSA), the concept of Julienne’s CSC (community-supported cooking) program is to help people eat wonderful, local food. But unlike getting just a box of raw ingredients, the offerings at Julienne include artfully prepared foods like duck sausage with kimchi, winter squash ravioli, creamy Parmesan dressing and sometimes a fresh produce item like Little Gem heads of lettuce from Roots Farm. The cost varies depending on the ingredients and amounts (the one pictured above was $35), and depending on what you do with your ingredients you may get one meal or several. The best part? The food is every bit as wonderful as what you find in their stellar restaurant, and yet you have the ease and convenience of eating at home.

You can see the weekly offerings at RestaurantJulienne.com in the
Retail section or sign up for their email newsletter so you’ll be the first to know. The number of shares is limited, so first come, first served. Pickup is on Saturday afternoons at 138 E. Canon Perdido St., Santa Barbara.
