After being online for nearly 18 months, it’s high time this blog got around to covering a food-related event — I mean, it’s called “Relish,” right?

So let me start with something über-cool: Selma Café. The best way to learn about this “breakfast salon” is to just show up on a Friday between 6:30–10am. You will be so glad you did! As the Repasts, Present & Future website puts it: “Eat local food, schmooze with local foodies, co-create the next wave of our local food community. No reservation needed, walk on in — come early, food while it lasts.”

Featuring all local ingredients and suppliers, including:

Suggested donation: $10–$15 for breakfast, $3 for a cup of coffee or tea with biscotti. All proceeds go directly to the local farmers and producers who supply the ingredients and to non-profit groups working to expand access to healthy, sustainable food resources.

I’m excited about this vast and energized (not to mention yummy) world that is opening up right before my eyes. Bon appétit!

Selma Café: March 6, 2009 | Each week features a guest chef who works with seasonal, local ingredients. Today, diners enjoyed chef Scott MacInnis’s delicious creations. I can personally vouch for the bread pudding!

Oh My Goddess! You rock. I believe I live in a glossy magazine now. I will never look at our kitchen the same again. Welcome to your new fan club. Jeff

What Jeff said! What a gorgeous document of our little breakfast adventure—thank you so very, very much. It was great meeting you on Friday!

Wow! I hope to see you at one of these soon :)

Lovely shots of a beautiful event – they really demonstrate the emotional connection to the food/community we are part of. I love that.

Myra, you are magic! Since I couldn’t stay past 8am last week, you helped me feel like I was there the whole time by your amazing ability to capture the lovely moments of good food and community with ease and clarity.
Thank you! LG

I’m sorry I wasn’t able to attend last Friday. It looks like I missed out on some great food and conversation. Your photos are amazing!
