The Joys of Eating Unseasonally

Eating seasonal food locally grown is great, but eating wonderfully ripe (and reasonably priced) berries in the middle of winter is better. Breakfast this morning: 100% whole wheat pancakes lightened by mixing in egg whites beaten to fairly stiff peaks (a Mark Bittman recipe from How To Cook Everything Vegetarian) with fresh blueberries (from Chile) and strawberries (California maybe?). The pancakes really are light and fluffy, ethereal even, but they become bone-dry and unpleasant tasting if overcooked.


  1. how rustic would you say the pancakes were, on a scale of 1-9

  2. like maybe a 3, for brownness
