The History of Spanish Paella

Paella! We love it for so many reasons: the delicious seafood, the smokey chorizo, flavorful rice and the scent of saffron. We're taking a trip to Spain today to celebrate Spanish Paella Day.

Join us in the Dining Commons for dinner for this beloved classic. In addition to a traditional paella with shrimp, chorizo, mussels and calamari we're also serving up a vegan version with blackened tempeh.

New England Farm Workers Council - Partners For Community

Today's Farmworker Awareness Week local spotlight is the New England Farm Workers Council, Inc. which supports farm workers throughout the Northeast.

"Established in 1971 as a small farm worker organization, New England Farm Workers’ Council (NEFWC) has become a multi-faceted human services agency dedicated to improving the quality of life for thousands of low-income people throughout the Northeast.

In addition to migrant and seasonal farm workers and their families, the agency serves inner-city, low-income groups, particularly Hispanic in western and north-central Massachusetts, central Connecticut, Rhode Island and southern New Hampshire.

NEFWC programs emphasize employment skills training and education coupled with necessary support as the only sure means out of poverty and social dependency. Providing a hand up rather than a handout is the agency’s approach to social service."

(NEFWC) assists migrant and seasonal farm workers and their families, as well as other low-income groups, with fuel assistance, employment, job skills and job search training to end poverty and social dependency.

What's not to love about tumeric? This amazing spice has gotten a lot of attention recently - and for good reason! Heard the buzz on tumeric but not sure what it's all about? Here are some facts on this powerful rhizome!

Turmeric is pronounced turr-mer-ick and is a rhizome — an underground stem that resembles a plant’s root. It’s a member of the ginger family.

• Turmeric is native to Asia. A large percentage of the world’s supply of turmeric is grown in India. Erode, in the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu, is known as the “Yellow City” or “Turmeric City.”

• Turmeric is not only used as a spice, but is also used as a natural dye. For example, the striking yellow tones of Buddhist robes are from turmeric.

• Turmeric (especially fresh) will stain your clothes, hands, counters, and cutting boards, so it’s best to put on an apron while cooking with it at home.

• While turmeric is prevalent in Indian cuisine, it is also widely utilized in Malaysian (laksa), Moroccan (ras el hanout), and Middle Eastern (hawaij) cuisines.

• Turmeric is culturally important in other ways. Haldi (the Hindi word for turmeric) is utilized in the Hindu wedding ritual — the Haldi Ceremony — to ward off evil and encourage prosperity.
