Farm to Fork Blog

Farm to Fork is a small catering and eatery located in Leander, Texas. Chef Shelley Pogue is the owner and founder of Chef Pogue's Farm To Fork. A Le Cordon Bleu Honor's Graduate with background in Recipe Development that were mass produced in large retail markets. Food has been changing for the past couple of decades some good and some not so much. I want to be able to help other,s and share my knowledge about the benefits of eating fresh local foods.

I am going to offer healthy local food choices from our local farmers that will bring healthy food options to the diner table. There will be seasonal fresh food choices for the carnivore, or the vegetarian regardless of the busy lifestyle we all seem to have these days. My goal is to feed my community, with great fresh food that is locally grown. It will help our local farmers, and if you have ever eaten something fresh from the farm you definitely know the difference!

Texas Pecan Pie Recipe

I know that everyone thinks that their grandma or mom is the best cook ever. I know my Mamaw Gracie Pogue -Montgomery was the best I have ever known, and many others would agree! I enjoyed her cooking so much that it inspired me to go to culinary school in the end due to my fond memories of cooking with her, and eating her lovingly prepared food. This is her Pecan Pie Recipe that was published in her church cook book and I have made this recipe at Farm to Fork and we sell out every-time. The recipe is a little time consuming but well worth every bite of it!

Bourbon Balls Recipe

Here is a dessert recipe that will be a little different from the others, and if you want to add a little more bourbon, make sure to add it to the adult table. These sweet treats will be a crowd pleaser and go nicely with some warm cider or brandy after a nice hearty meal.

Ingredients:

1 cup vanilla wafer crumbs
1 cup finely chopped pecans
1 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup bourbon
1 1/2 teaspoons light corn syrup
1/3 cup confectioners' sugar for decoration

Directions: Combine ground vanilla wafer crumbs, finely chopped pecans, 1 cup confectioners' sugar and cocoa. Blend the bourbon and the corn syrup together. Add the crumb mixture and mix well. Shape into 1 inch balls and roll in the 1/2 cup of confectioners' sugar. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Food Love of Lone Star Goat Cheese

If I had just a little free time to spare I would have some goats of my very own. They seem to be really handy, not to mention the cuteness they encompass. They produce a liquid white gold that has many uses, like milk to drink, milk can be used to make goat's milk soap, and one of my favorites is Chevrie cheese. Chevre is French for Goat’s cheese i.e. cheeses made out of goat’s milk... YUM!!!

At Farm To Fork we use CHEVRE : (Shev-reh) "Fresh Artisan Goat Cheese" Made with 100% fresh goat's milk. It is used in a couple of our sides, but I think that the corn casserole that is made at #TheFork is the favorite. It is a corn side dish that was created not to be like a sweet creamed corn dish, but a delectable corn creation that is very velvety, creamy and savory. 

Lone Star Chevrie Goat Cheese is used at Farm To Fork and is made with 100% fresh goat's milk. A true Texas Farmstead goat cheese made faithful to the traditional methods of the farmstead cheese-makers of old. HAND LADLED, small batches, made with no preservatives, stabilizers or artificial ingredients. This method results in a fresh, mild, creamy Texas fresh cheese. This is one of the reasons this is our goat cheese at The Fork. Made in Texas, by Texans, Go Texan

If you have not tried Lone Star Goat Cheese you can find it at HEB, Central Market or in our Corn Casserole at Farm To Fork. Enjoy!

THANK YOU Farm To Fork Texas for writing about Lone Star Goat Cheese in your Blog today. We love your Restaurant and your support of our Local Texas Cheese. GO TEXAN!!!!!
