Rosemary Roasted Potatoes
by Alta Cucina Italia

This is a delicious and so easy to prepare side dish recipe, that will complement your favorite meal dish. I personally love this rosemary roasted potatoes.

I usually made them, when I make roasted chicken, and what I love the most? It’s that after we finish eating, I do not have to start dealing with cleaning my stove (since all I used was the oven), and while my chicken and potatoes are cooking, I clean up all the preparation table, then make a great green salad..and when it’s ready, just serve, eat and enjoy a wonderful table, chat after it! Also it’s a good choice when you are expecting some friends to come over, because you can make it ahead of time!

1/4 A&A Rosemary Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Tbsp A&A Amalfi Blend
Salt to taste
1 pound potatoes (use whichever varieties you find or prefer)

Preheat oven to 400 F.
In a bowl, whisk the oil, the A&A Amalfi blend & salt.
Toss the potatoes with the dressing until well coated.
Place the potatoes in a large and heavy baking sheet.
Roast the potatoes, turning them occasionally, until they are tender & golden.
Before serving the potatoes, drizzle some more A&A Rosemary Infused EVOO.
Transfer to a big bowl and…enjoy!

Northeast Georgia Locally Grown:  Locally Grown - Special Update - Christmas Party BEER TASTING / POTLUCK

Hey Local Food Lovers,

I wanted to send you a very special 2nd message this week that I failed to mention this last time.

As many of you know the Soque River Watershed Association in Clarkesville is the non-profit sponsor for the Locally Grown market. It’s one of our programs to support sustainable land-based businesses.

Each year for the past 3 years we’ve had an end of year Christmas Party at my house to say thanks to everyone who has in any way been involved in our organization or programs. If you’ve been eating Local Food, or even just reading our message here occasionally then you are one of those people.

ALL OF YOU ARE INVITED to the SRWA Christmas Party and BEER TASTING POTLUCK this Friday December 14th. Sounds fun doesn’t it. To participate just bring a craft beer (defined as a beer made by a brewer that is small, independent, and makes yummy beer) at least one large 24 oz bottle, or two 12oz bottles and a potluck dish (veggies, meats, snacks or sweets). We’ll do blind taste tests of beers to see which one’s you like and help you navigate the wonderful world of craft beer. Anyone who gets this post is invited (and feel free to invite good beer-loving friends). Of course we highly encourage you to consider joining the SRWA (online at or at the party). Encouraged but not required. It’s a great way to support your local river loving group, and have some good beers, food, and laughs.

Party is at Justin and Ching-Yu (and Cheetos and Whiskey’s) house at 237 Wilson Street, Clarkeville, GA. That’s right across from Grace Calvary Church. In fact you’ll want to park in their parking lot. Starts at 6pm.

ps- If you’re wondering how to get your hands on good craft beer, here’s a few suggestions. Betty’s in Helen, Hillside Beverage in Gainseville, Beverage Superstore in Suwanee, 5 points bottle shop in Athens. Very limited selections are of course at Ingles but try and surprise us.

Hope many of you can make it. This will be the first opportunity we’ve had to hang out with lots of you outside of the market so please come on… may get to meet one or many of your FARMERS! And have a beer with them!

Thanks and Happy Holidays,

Justin in Habersham
