Review of Darigold’s magazine ‘FRESH’

21 Oct

Moi gets many press releases and offers to review books and other items. Darigold’s magazine, “FRESH” really appealed to moi because Darigold is a local cooperative and moi supports the local food movement. See, http://www.localharvest.org/ According to the letter sent to moi by Kristen Hamilton:

FRESH is produced and created by Darigold. You may already know us for our milk, butter, sour cream, cottage cheese and other dairy products found at your local grocers. What many people don’t know, is that we’re also one of America’s largest dairy co-ops, in operation and farmer owned since 1918.

We represent more than 500 family farms throughout the Northwest to bring Seattle residents the delicious world of dairy. We look forward to sharing our story with you through FRESH magazine, and we plan to send you complimentary issues as they are launched throughout the year.

The particular issue of FRESH sent to moi is glossy with beautiful pictures and great recipes.

The issue begins with stories about the cows describing the nature of the cows, grooming, and how they eat their food. This is really interesting stuff. Believe it or not, there is a fascinating discussion about cottage cheese and how it is made. Next, the issue provides portraits of the families involved in dairy farming. There is also a great piece about the Nelscott Cafe in Lincoln City, Oregon and the fabulous pancakes and French toast.

The magazine opens with stories about the cows, farmers, and restaurant to build to the conclusion of recipes. The food is not only beautifully photographed, but for a foodie will make one salivate just reading the ingredients. There are coupons in the back of the magazine for tasty Darigold products.
