<p>  The Kevin Loth and Charuth Van Beuzekom of Shadow Brook Farm and Dutch Girl Creamery</p> Meet Your Farmers

This year’s Farmers Market Guide goes beyond a list of addresses and websites to tell the stories of farmers you might see throughout the season. We profiled those who make convenience foods, grow vegetables, create cheese and produce grass-fed beef. Of course, there are many more farmers than room in print to tell their stories, which is why The Reader has also designated the first week of every month as Local Food Week. During those weeks we will dedicate space and time to the local producers who grow our food and share what’s in season as well as news and events surrounding local food.

Take time this year to introduce yourself and get to know your producers. Many farmers’ market...

<p>  Localmotive Food Truck</p> Local Take on Street Food

Street food in many communities is the shoe leather, browbeaten pride of its citizens’ culinary and cultural makeup. At its best it is humble, utilitarian, authentic and often one of the easiest and most affordable ways to get a true taste of place.  At its worst, it is contrived, contrary and out of touch with its roots.

Only five weeks into its existence it looks as though Localmotive Food Truck is on its way to representing Omaha’s cuisine culture while building its street food credentials.

The menu is succinct with variations of four basic items – rounders (a stuffed dumpling), sandwiches, bowls and street frites (fries). Prices are within reason ranging from $3 for frites to $7...

Chef Chats with Two of Omaha’s Brightest Openings

Chef: Jennifer Coco

Restaurant: J.Coco

Tell us about your culinary background? Where did you study? How did you start in this industry?

I started bussing tables at the age of 15 for The Baking Company. Someone got sick one day and they asked if I could help out in the kitchen. I learned some basic kitchen skills and when I was in college I kept cooking to pay for law school. I didn’t end up going to law school because I decided to stay cooking. I was taught by restaurants, not culinary schools.

What is unique about your cooking style?

I haven’t worked with too many others head chefs because I have ended up falling into head chef positions. I don’t have any classic skills and I...
