Dumas speaks to BDN about growing a ‘recipe garden’

Robert Dumas, food science innovation coordinator at the University of Maine, spoke to the Bangor Daily News about growing a “recipe garden,” which focuses on growing crops for specific dishes or types of dishes, like salsa, pizza, kimchi, sauerkraut or Thai cuisine. “There is always the availability with your garden to grow things unique to certain recipes. The trick is planting so that all the various components are ripe and ready to harvest at the same time,” Dumas said.
