The photo below has not been Photoshopped.
It is, indeed, the perfect onion.
Our prep cook Chloe found it in a bunch that she was cutting up to be caramelized. Its beauty paused her enough to bring it to our social media guy Mark who in turn took a picture, one picture!, to which he then exclaimed "Thats a wrap!"
No need to run it through his photo programs. No need to retouch or redo. Its perfection simply shines through.
But her duty was yet fulfilled and that onion had to be sliced for caramelization. Afterwards, Chloe then explained quietly "That onion was the easiest onion to peel. It was as if it was inviting me to do so."
Perhaps that perfect onion will wind up in a soup, salad or torta that you will enjoy soon. Perhaps.
One can only hope.
And dream...

09/23/2022

Better Than Provisions is the best granola in the world and it is made right here in Tucson. Hand produced in a commissary near downtown, the husband and wife team of Earl and April King create a six nut blend of vegan, non-GMO granola in three different flavor profiles, each one with its own distinct spice, theme and approach.
We have been fortunate to carry Better Than Provisions for the past year and the response to their product on our shelves has been overly positive since the beginning.
Recently a wonderful article was written about them for Tucson Foodie. It goes into detail the process of not just making the granola but how it all came about in the first place.
You can read that article here:
https://tucsonfoodie.com/2022/09/22/better-than-provisions/
You can purchase Better Than Provisions in the Bodega or online through our website (link provided below).
Better Than Provisions’ granola is not only tasty but packed with nutrients, antioxidants, vitamins and essential well-being properties. Have some for breakfast, take a bag when you go on a hike or bike ride, always have it available for road and camping trips. The Gallery of Food staff can usually be seen crunching on some when we are not cooking up amazing food from locally sourced products or selling those amazing locally sourced products.
It’s so darn good!
Better Than Provisions granola can also be found on the Tucson FarmDrop website as well:
farmdrop.us/market/tucson
Thank you everybody! And thank you April and Earl for Better Than Provisions. You make eating healthy, well, so much better!

Today is the first day of Autumn. Huzzah!
In keeping with the season along with a certain haunted holiday on the cooler weather horizon, we made a Spooky Spicy Chipotle Black Bean Sweet Potato soup. Not much more needs to be said about it except it is hearty, full of Bodega soup magic yum and it is 100% vegan. It’s spicy but not too spicy. Just the right amount of heat to scare the ghoulies away.
We done caved in and are finally carrying Popped Artisan Popcorn because, well, we just have to. Made right here in Tucson, we offer 8 different flavor varieties, including truffle, churro, and bourbon espresso caramel. As you probably already know, Popped popcorn is non-GMO, gluten free, vegan and contains no preservatives. They are right there on the left when you pop into the shop and are available for online ordering.
As our new neighbor is nearing construction completion, the chain link fence that was up for months, basically the entirety of summer, is now gone. Yay! You can see us again! There are yellow dividers between our and their parking area but big whoop. It just feels less, well, divided, which is what we like. We can’t wait for our new neighbor to open their doors to a delicious land of treats and teas but until then just know we are open for business, serve some of the best food for lunch or dinner and can’t wait to see you all soon.
Thanks!

The triumphant return of Moonlighter Farm!
After a brief yet well needed break, Tommie and his crew are back with some of the best produce available in Southern Arizona.
Here at Gallery of Food we currently are carrying their kale, turnips, radishes and baby greens. So fresh and so delicious. So good for you as well!
That means that Moonlighter Farm is also back on Tucson FarmDrop.
You can sign up for FarmDrop and order his and many more locally grown and made products here:

Moonlighter Farm produce is 100% organic and certified sustainable so order online through the link provided below or stop into the Bodega as soon as you can.

The late summer produce hits just keep on comin’!

From the farm of Briggs and Eggers is a grand supply of bartlett pears. If you think they look a little misshapen that’s because those are how pears are supposed to look. A bit bumpy, maybe a tad lumpy, few scars here and there as nature adores the perfectly imperfect. Although these pears are perfectly juicy and delicious. Get them now while they are super fresh as they are moving rather quickly.
Speaking of slightly misshapen, check out those golden globe potatoes! From the fertile grounds of Whipstone Farm come these tasty and starchy wonders of tuber-rificness. Again, this is how ol’ Ma Earth intended for these guys to look. It may make cutting them into uniform pieces a might rough but, hey, at least they aren’t overly processed and pumped full of unnecessary chemicals, because then they would look really weird. They’d be perfectly round. Yikes!
Our good friends at Common Ground Farm Collective comes a triage of summer squash, a near rainbow of zucchini, yellow zucchini and Costata Romanesco (the stripey one). Most excellent for baking, roasting, made into a lasagna or ratatouille. Have you had zucchini chips before? So good! This will most likely will be the last haul of the summer squash varieties so order online or get into the Bodega as soon as you can.
Thanks everyone!

Happy Thursday! The weekend is almost here. Unless you work over the weekend then, well…Happy Thursday!
Okra seems to get a bad rap in some territories claiming that it tastes funny and is often described as “slimy”. That “funny” taste they’re talking about is actually grassy and sweet. When you cook okra a certain way it releases a natural juice that is actually creamy. So, you see, okra, in fact, is quite a complex little tasty tidbit that is packed with flavor, vitamins and immune support antioxidants. Our current okra situation courtesy of Southwinds Farm is an extremely happy one. Okra is great in so many eating capacities; fried, roasted, in gumbos, in soups, in curries, in almost anything. All we are saying is give okra a chance!
Tomatillos are in fact not tomatoes. They are a small spherical fruit that look like tomatoes, along with tomatillo meaning “little tomato” in Spanish, but they are their own thing. That’s what makes them so special! Salsa verde anybody? Endless southwest and Mexican dishes perhaps? Can you eat them raw? Yes! Heck we know some people that use them in their morning smoothies. Cucumber tomatillo gazpacho sounds really tasty right now. Come on in or order online to get you some tomatillos and find your own way to cook and eat them.
What can be said about plum tomatoes that hasn’t already been said? Wait, has there been a lot said about plum tomatoes that we don’t know about? Is there some kind of plum tomato dark web community posting all too much about these sweet and juicy fruits that literally explode with flavor? Doubt it, but, you never know. Again, thanks to Southwinds Farm we are replete with the best plum tomatoes grown and harvested in southern Arizona. Just to let you know, the minute we post about these tomatoes (not on the dark web!) folks line up, sn**ch them up and then gobble them up. They are available for online orders or for sale here in the Bodega.
Thanks!

On Thursday September 22nd, autumn will have officially moved in. For stores across our fair desert hamlet, bags of candy adorned with ghosts and bats have already made their way onto shelves. Heck we even saw a display of cranberry sauce, marshmallows and stuffing recently. Now that is a bit early don’t you think?
Regardless of the retail holiday push, the time of cooler weather and family gatherings is fast approaching. We will always have the freshest produce, house baked breads and desserts, along with local products, goodies and gifts to help you enjoy your celebration, and always will. This is also the season to get back into the baking habit and here at Gallery of Food we have the best supplies for your holiday confection obsession.
On our shelves are items you will definitely need, ranging from Arizona produced honey, to jams and jellies, rich chocolate nibs, bars and powder, fudgy sauce, nuts, grains, fruit and spices.
Most of the baking supplies on hand are either Tucson based or at least aligned with our very own state 48. We carry Hayden Mills flour and fair trade baking soda and powder. Our house granola is great for some delicious texture and flavor but if you’re looking for something a bit more exotic then your go to is Better Than Provisions, which is made and bagged just a few miles from the Bodega.
There are always bars of Monsoon Chocolate available, Arizona dried fruits and Cook’s vanilla extract.
We may not have the largest inventory of baking supplies but what we do have is locally sourced and sourced for absolute quality. So before you fire up the oven, stop on in or place your online order to make your baking spirits bright.
Thanks!

09/09/2022

Autumn hits on Thursday the 22nd, just a little under 2 weeks. Now, “autumn” here in the Sonoran Desert means very little until probably around Halloween when we actually consider breaking out a jacket and turning the AC off. Or at least down a bit.
That means we still have plenty of summer yield apples, melons and fresh seasonal produce!
It wont last that much longer before the gourds and cooler weather crops arrive so place your online order soon or stop into the Bodega when you get a chance. Remember these are farm fresh, super organic, non GMO products meaning that they survive a shorter amount of time than big box store produce which live a lot longer because they are essentially Frank-n-veggies. No thank you!
We still have a decent number of pomegranates, canary melons, jester and patty pan squashes, Asian pears, and gala apples. Get ‘em while the getting is good!
Now the squash at the end of the photo scroll is called a Blue Hubbard squash. The Blue Hubbard can be baked, roasted, and steamed, made into a purée and used like pumpkin in breads, pies, or pasta dishes. It's also a delicious addition to soups, stews, or casseroles.
Our history with the Blue Hubbard squash goes back last year when we acquired one (one that was three times as big as the one we currently have in the shop) and it sat unpurchased for almost three months. The Blue Hubbard is a sturdy squash but it was getting to that time when we had to say goodbye to ol’ Bluey.
At the 11th hour! A nice person stopped in and gave Bluey a nice home promising that it was for decoration only as Thanksgiving was approaching.
You need a Blue Hubbard squash in your life. Either in your home or in the oven. Up to you. Bluey 2 is down for whatever.
Thanks!

09/08/2022

We have done a little research (a little) and so far it seems that Gallery of Food may be the first shop in Tucson to carry the new superfood energy bars Earth Sugar.
We might be. Pretty sure we are.
Earth Sugar is based out of Phoenix and got its name derived from the idea that ‘earth sugar’ is the naturally occurring fructose found in fruits, vegetables and plants. Earth Sugar bars are 100% vegan, allergen free and contain no dairy, no soy, zero refined sugar and zero empty calories. The main components in each bar that we carry consist of dates, cashews, coconut, maple syrup and sea salt. That’s it.
Currently in stock is the Banana Bread bar, for those that need to have that ‘nana bite in their day, Cinna Raisin, which will remind you of that cinnamon raisin bread your grandma used to make, the Choco Cherry, with hits of warm cacao and tart cherries, and the Classic Crunch, a proper staple to have in your bag or pocket if you need a quick pick me up.
Earth Sugar energy bars are soft, good for the environment, good for you and best of all really tasty.
Seeing as Tucson is a hiking, biking and getting outside (when its not so muggy, buggy or hot) kind of city so Earth Sugar bars should always be nearby after a long ride, when you’re halfway up that hill or just want a delicious snack when you are enjoying the day.
Gallery of Food is just a few skips from Rio Vista Park, which is part of The Loop, so pop on in before you pop on over to get your cyclin’, walkin’ or joggin’ on.
Each bar weighs in just over 2oz and retails for only $5. They are available for online ordering as well as being ready and waiting for you here in the Bodega.
See you soon!

Tucson. You ready for this? Because here we go.
We make the best soup in town. Or anywhere really.
Our soups are chef driven and at the whims of the seasons. They are unique and never repeated. Our soups, to put it bluntly, are amazing.
Whether you find our soups in our freezer section or on the menu for lunch or dinner.
Omnivore? We got you. Vegan? We got you!
The soups here at Gallery of Food will be hard pressed finding an equal. Do we sound a little arrogant saying or claiming this? We don’t mean to but, c’mon now…have you had our soups?
If you have, then you know. If you haven’t then order some online or stop into the Bodega when you can. Our soups will not let you down. In fact, they will lift you up!
Hot, cold, spicy, mild, our soups delight every palate and everybody.
Its soup. Who doesn’t like soup?
Exactly.
See you soon.

What do you know about the pomegranate?
Well, first off, they are totally amazingly juicy and delicious. Not the actual pomegranate itself, but the lil' seeds that reside inside.
And do you know what those lil' seeds that reside inside are called?
Arils.
Outside of the arils being super tasty did you know that they provide essential health benefits? You probably did because there is pomegranate juice available...everywhere.
Pomegranates offer antioxidants and flavonoids, both of which are known to prevent free radicals from damaging your cells. In some studies, pomegranates show potential to be effective in preventing prostate, breast, lung, and colon cancers.
Well friends, a neighbor with a pomegranate orchard just dropped off a good amount of locally grown pomegranates and are on sale either online or in the Bodega.
Small pomegranates retail for $1.50 while the big 'uns are going for $3.
So stop on by or order yours today!

Its September! Can you believe it? It’s still hot and muggy but…its September!
Fresh in from Pivot Produce are five products we are extremely stoked about. Stoked we tell you! They are just brimming with late summer deliciousness and nutrients and we can’t wait for you to order these lovelies online or pick them up when you stop by and visit us in the Bodega.
The Canary Melon is a large, bright-yellow elongated melon with a pale green to white inner flesh. This melon has a distinctively sweet flavor that is slightly tangier than a honeydew melon. They are great on their own or in a refreshing fruit salad but James Beard winning and Michelin starred chef Dominique Crenn loves to roast hers with shallots, garlic, ginger, Meyer lemons, cilantro and fleur de sel. We’re not going to argue with that because chef Crenn rules!
Now the Jester Squash is an early winter squash with a distinctive long shape and longitudinal stripes known for its colorful appearance, often bright yellow, orange and green. Sure, they are fun to look at but they are also very fun to eat. Try roasting them with some olive oil, sea salt and pepper or with some maple syrup, brown sugar and cinnamon. Fantastic!
Speaking of roasting, the eggplants that arrived are so tender and flavorful we suggest using but a scant amount of ingredients to make these nightshade fruits sing. Eggplant parmesan? Certo! These eggplants in your favorite stir fry? Zhè shì zuì hǎo de! Get some now because they are going fast.
What would a late summer crop be without a bunch of incredible tomatoes? To say that these Roma and Slicing tomatoes are incredible is a near insult to the adjective itself. The romas are sweet and rumbling with that roma-esque umami-ness while the slicing tomatoes are great for sandwiches and general mirth making. Our tomatoes are normally displayed right by the front door so they tend to go really quick like because when our customers pop in, after being alarmed by that loud doorbell hanging overhead, they see the red beauties lined up and go “I’ll take ‘em!” So, you better get in soon before they are all taken.
See you soon!

09/01/2022

“Sopes? Why I use sopes everyday when I take a bath.”
No, no. Not soaps. Sopes!
A sope is a traditional Mexican dish consisting of a fried masa base with various toppings. Also known as picadita, it originates in the central and southern parts of Mexico, where it was sometimes first known as pellizcadas.
Well kind readers of our posts and dedicated customers, Gallery of Food is now offering sopes!
We start with heritage red supai corn and steep it for weeks allowing it to not only cleanse but to infuse that incredible flavor that only Sonoran grown corn possesses.
After a long rinse process, it is then dried and ground into a sort of corny (?) paste before getting mixed with a special blend of herbs and spices. You know how we do with our herbs and spices. We love our herbs and spices!
Thus begins the shaping stage of the sopes.
Think of sopes as a thick tortilla with a scoop in the middle to handle all of the goodness that goes on top. Our chefs carefully knead the masa while giving it that distinctive edible bowl form before they go into a hot pan glistening with oil to give them a perfect fry.
Let’s see…what’s next? Time to top the sopes!
For the omnivores out there, we have seasoned local and humanely raised chicken and for the veggies out there we offer fresh seasonal vegetables as a topping. Either or is a tasty treat that really can’t be beat.
Just note that our sopes are not vegan as they contain eggs as a binder. We were going to go full tradition and use pork lard but we felt, and ate, that the eggs provided a lighter depth that we wanted.
Served with local greens, our house pico and almost famous escabeche for only $19.
So come on by and get sope'd!

Its raining peppers! Hallelujah! It’s raining peppers!
From our pals at Aguiar Farms comes Marconi and Banana peppers. Marconi peppers are an Italian variety that are sweet and bursting with flavor. A popular way to cook Marconi peppers is to stuff them with some of your favorite ingredients and bake them to perfection. Banana peppers have a sweet, mild flavor and are far from being spicy. Not that Marconi peppers are spicy but they are far milder. And sweeter. Plus, they sort of look like a banana. Sort of.
Back in, finally!, are one of our favorite peppers, the C***o di Toro. These kids pack a little more heat and have a smoky approach to any southwestern or Mexican dish you’ve been scheming about just may have to include the c***o di toro, or several actually. They are of the Italian peppers family so it looks like ypou’ll be adding a bit of flavor from the old country into dishes from, well, another old country.
Then we have locally grown bell peppers and poblanos.
Like most organically operated vegetation, real bell peppers are a tad smaller than the mass supermarket kind. That’s because they aren’t pumped full of the nasties that make them big and flavorless. You’ve had chain store bells now stop in and taste what a real store bell has to offer. The same goes for the poblanos we currently are offering. They. Are. For. Real. Really yummy and not really spicy but yeah there is a bit of a throttle to them. We love roasting them and including them into salsas or stuffing them with black beans and rice and serving them as either a main dish or side. You can follow our lead or take over and do whatever you want with these peppers because they are here, they are delicious, and they will appease the palate of most people we, and probably you, know.
But then there’s always that one weird cousin that’s like “Eww, organic peppers. Gross.” Yeah you don’t need that sort of negativity in your life.
Thanks!

“Tis the season for melons and apples. Fa la la la la, la la la…oh wait”
Well, actually, it is but somehow a holiday classic got stuck in our heads.
All the way from Angle Orchard in Safford is a collection of gala apples that are so crisp and sweet they will make you plotz. Sure you can bake them into a pie, or make the best applesauce ever, perhaps dice them up and sprinkle into a lovely spinach salad but before you do…eat one as is! You’ll thank us when you do. Just stand in the kitchen staring out the window as you eat your gala apple. Take it all in. Deep breath. Its good right? No, its better than good. It’s the goodest.
For some reason cantaloupe gets a bad rap. We have no idea why but, well, they often do. If you think about it, what would brunch be without a slice of cantaloupe on your plate? It wouldn’t! Cantaloupes are so juicy and versatile and maybe that’s why people like to shun them. They’re just jealous. They wish they could be as juicy and versatile as a cantaloupe. Don’t you?
Then we have the ubiquitous watermelon. Ahhh the watermelon. Straight from the crops of Larry’s Veggies comes a batch of watermelons that need to get into your hands and into your mouths pronto. One thing that folks have mentioned when purchasing one of his watermelons is that they are smaller than the ones found in major supermarkets. That’s because these are REAL watermelons. 100% organic desert grown and harvested watermelons. Have you ever seen a real strawberry plucked right off of the vine? Small right? But how is the taste? Incredible. Same goes for Larry’s watermelons. So good.
I think we only have one orange honeydew melon in the fridge at present so if you’re seeing this stop by soon to get your hungry lil mitts on it. Orange honeydews are so rich in beta carotene and vitamin C that eating but a few bites will energize your system to a level of having to wear a cape and silly boots because you are going to be flying with health benefits. Plus they are just neat to look at both outside and in. That pic we took of it gives it sort of a giant eyeball effect. But inside it is bright orange. Like electric orange. Hence the name!
Thanks!

Asian Hosui pears and a sandwich incorporated with Thai basil? Bit of a theme with todays post it seems.
You asked for them and we delivered. Fresh in from Aravaipa Farms, Hosui pears just arrived to the Bodega and wow are they bright and delicious. Compared to the more common European varieties, Hosui pears possess a rounder shape and have a crispier texture much like an apple with a similar flavor profile. Hosui pears are a little tart, a little sweet with delicate floral notes and are lower in acidity, which is good for a lot of people that fall victim to that fruity reflux nonsense. Outside of just biting into one, Hosui pears are fantastic for canning, steam them with honey and goji berries for a delightful umami treat, or poach these pears with some vanilla bean, lemon, ginger and sugar for an Asian inspired dessert. We currently have two cases of Hosui pears but since a lot of you have been asking for them we assume they are going to go fast. So stop in soon or place our online order today!
It may not be our most popular menu item (at present) but it is the one that has been getting the most attention of late. Our Tomatillo Basil Beef Torta is slowly gaining control of the menu board and its not hard to see, and taste, why. We start with our house baked telera bread and stuff it with seasoned locally ranched beef that is cooked medium rare unless specified otherwise. It is then topped with fresh aromatic Thai basil, Swiss cheese and our tangy house tomatillo drizzle. It’s that sweet to savory ratio making each bite a very yummy special one. There are either a lot of Mmm’s or intoxicated silence happening when people are eating this torta. You need to get in here soon to join in on the fun! Served with mixed greens or potato salad for only $18.
Thanks!

Gallery of Food has recently added NEW vegan dishes to their seasonal menu!

You can now enjoy a sweet and savory locally grown stuffed squash filled with tepary beans, currants, corn, pistachio, red onion, and a bright tomatillo drizzle. Add the vegan as-is Pan-Seared Desert Pearl Mushroom Torta or the Curried Cauliflower Torta to your meal for a savory handheld.

They’ve added a beet and grapefruit salad that’s vegan when you omit the feta cheese. Ask for no egg on the new chickpea salad, and you’re all set.

The Bodega Bowl of the Day is a rotating selection of house-made soups that are regularly vegan.

After your meal, shop their market for locally grown produce, baking supplies, gifts, and much more. ❤️

Join Chefs Kristine Jensen and Christopher Baldwin of Gallery of Food Bodega as they walk you through tamale making. A holiday tradition for many, tamales are a delicious year round treat rich in tradition in flavor. In this class, you'll learn how to make your own masa (don't worry, it's much easier than you think!) and a myriad of fillings fit for omnivores and vegetarians alike.

I love shopping at Gallery of Food. The selection of frozen take out food is fantastic. My current favorite is the cardomom scones. The are so good with the limequat curd.
Gallery of Food is one of those special places that captures some of the best things about Tucson - the people, the place, the care in what they do. Local produce from small suppliers, excellence in their product: catering, food market or their new patio menu and staff!

the word ENJOY! works well - it’ food with ❤️

Is this not the most beautiful, classic arrangement?! 😍 I love the neutral bridal bouquet featuring lots of greenery that Hannah carried down the aisle for her Tucson, Arizona, microwedding earlier this year. As much as I love color, I think there's something to be said for keeping your flowers simple and going for a timeless look like this one! 🌹

Do you like simple and classic, or bright and daring for a bridal bouquet? Give me your thoughts below! 👇

If you missed my Weekend Watch segment on today's Bill Buckmaster Show, my picks included the Grab-n-Go Date Night Dinner from Gallery of Food (imaginative pizzas, two kinds of salads, buttery cookies, and a DVD!); this Saturday's start of St. Patrick's Day celebrating at Ermanos Craft Beer & Wine Bar (they had me at corned beef tartines with cabbage, horseradish remoulade, and Guinness mustard); and the release of the 2021 Distiller's Cut at Whiskey Del Bac (this single malt beauty rested in a Spanish Sherry cask for years before it was recently bottled).

Listen for my picks for weekend food, fun, and frolic every Friday at 12:50 pm on the Buckmaster Show on 1030 The Voice!
