Meet Your Farmer:
David Silveira’s Rapini Pasta Recipe

By November 20, 2013Meet Your Farmer

Your farmer David Silveira can cook. He’s got know how from seed, to sprout, to harvest, to the kitchen and dinner table.

David’s vegetables show up  in the AHO produce box nearly every week of the year, and he and his wife Michelle, a teacher, also run their own CSA. If you ever find yourself in want of yet another source of seasonal recipes, their farm’s Facebook page is a great source of tested recipes from their ranch house kitchen.


We’re sending out our first round of Rapini this week, so it felt right to share one of the Silveira family’s go to rapini recipes: orecchiette con le cime di rapa.
