You all know I'll try any food once - if I like it, great; if I don't, never again. That's how I've come to appreciate foods like ox tail, octopus, and even grasshoppers. I'm sure there are things that I'll try that will gross me out, but...it's all a part of the learning process, right?
At this year's Farm to Table Pittsburgh Local Food Tasting, I had the opportunity to try many foods from a variety of vendors. Many of the same vendors were there from last year; however, there were many additional vendors this year, which was fantastic to see!
I could go on about every single thing that I tried, but...no. I won't. Instead, here are some of my favorites:
Restaurant Echo is proving to make me into a beet-eater, as that is one of the foods that I avoid most often. They offered smoked trout with beets and creme fraiche on endive. This dish was delish! I need to try them on one of my adventures up north someday.

|Regina Koetters of Marty's Market dishes out the pork!|
|Tait Farms Schrub (available in lemon, lime, ginger, cherry, and raspberry)|
