  1. What an awesome challenge and a great way to publicize the benefits of buying locally with your amazing meals. The crumb cake looks especially good – I love rhubarb although I think it may be an ‘acquired’ taste.

  2. Fun!
    It is hard to keep local, but as you continue to do so it gets much easier. I agree that it’s hard to keep away from the parmigiano! Luckily we have a producer close by that makes a parmesan-style cheese. Just have to do a little digging sometimes!

  3. Wow, this is awesome! The food looks delicious 🙂

  4. Such a great, original idea! Way to go you two!!!!! 🙂

    P.s. love the video. 🙂

  5. That looks like so much fun!! And the Pretzel Bread Pudding looks amazing! Wow I want some right now!

  6. Very fun idea! The Pretzel Bread Pudding is a great idea! I love the idea of using local ingredients, and I really hope to do more of it myself in the future 🙂

  7. What a fun 24, 24 ,24 idea! I try to buy local too, and it’s insane how hard it is! Even our local co-op has stuff that’s been shipped thousands of miles… thankfully its all labeled though! 🙂

  8. that’s a fun idea to vote! the pasta didn’t get rave reviews, but it looked absolutely heavenly 🙂

  9. That looks like an incredible 24, 24, 24!! Pretzel bread pudding!? Omg!

  10. Great job girls! That looked amazing! So fun! Congrats!

  11. What an awesome idea, everything looks delicious and looks like a good time!

  12. How fun is this??? I love pretzel factory pretzels!!! i get them every time we come to philly. That dessert looks out of this world! Also really enjoyed how you listed the opinions and did the video!Nice work Sabrina!!! (AND HEATHER!!)

  13. Melissa Cari

    What a fun activity! The presentation looks amazing…you’re all such talented chefs!!

  14. Cannot WAIT for that pretzel bread pudding recipe! Looks like you guys had tons of fun — great challenge.

  15. I haven’t seen one of these 24,24,24 dinners in action before. Looks like it was challenging to buy local, which is kinda sad. We should support local companies.

    I bet you guys had a lot of fun.

  16. This looks like so much fun! I love Di Bruno brothers, when my husband lived there we would go all the time for lunch. Do you live in Fairmount? I miss Philly so much, I haven’t been there in awhile, so thanks for the pics 🙂 Everything looked great especially the dessert!

  17. What a fun event and challenge! I think it all looks terrific, but I am a little stuck on the Philly pretzel bread pudding! That just sounds so interesting and delicious! Made with Philly pretzels and chocolate…how bad can that be?!

  18. What a fun battle! I loved this! I definitely try to take advantage of the local RI food when I can. Next semester I’m going to be on the co-op eating program and get local veggies at Brown each week

  19. That was so much fun to do and to watch today!!! Thanks again for being my partner.

  20. When’s the next Battle Local Foods?

    Will there be shards of glass in the dishes this time?


  21. Hahahahaha – lovely idea, girls!
    Lovely post, btw. Haha 😉
    Have a wonderful week!
    Brazilian XOXO´s,

  22. What fun!!! I love the pretzel bread pudding idea. Looks super yummy!

  23. I love celebrating local foods! Looks like you guys had a blast!

  24. What a fun dinner! This would be great to do once a month with friends.

  25. What a fantastic post! I am currently looking into a CSA and my local farmer’s markets so I can also support my community. Not to mention, it’s healthier!

  26. This was awesome. HOW FUN!!!! I so want to do a food challenge….

  27. Excellent post!!! And gorgeous photos 🙂

    Looks like a great deal of fun was had!

  28. Great challenge! Here’s a tip. Look for GROWERS markets instead of FARMERS markets. The growers markets are ALL grown by the person that is selling the produce, bread, etc. The one in West Chester is probably my fave.

  29. LOVE this!! Looked like so much fun, plus all the delicious looking food! Wish I could have been there 🙂 I love rhubarb, but I feel like a lot of people don’t have much experience with it by itself…it’s so often with strawberries. MMmm makes me want something strawberry-rhubarb!

  30. The fresh mozzarella/asparagus bruschetta looks so good to me! After wrangling with tons of rhubarb in my challenge, I’m craving mild, subtler tastes.

    Excellent, sensible and sober angle on the local foods sourcing issue. We need to work on sourcing foods locally that are native/established locally, and not worry too much about things like spices or citrus fruits because let’s face it, there’s been trade in exotic foods for centuries. All in all, wonderful post and dinner!

  31. ur incredibly pretty!!! just stumbled upon ur bloggie and love it so much. great pictures. have a fabulous week <3

  32. Ivy

    Congratulations for being one of the other 23. What a great idea and we should all support local produce wherever we live !!

  33. What an awesome post! Love seeing you and Heather together — two of my fave ladies in one place 🙂

    I, like those above, also like rhubarb, though I’ve yet to find a suitable raw way of preparing it (and doubt there is one). I make a mean rhubarb-strawberry whole wheat vegan muffin, though.

    And duh, life without guac would suck.

  34. Thanks for one’s marvelous posting! I genuinely enjoyed reading it, you can be a great author.I will be sure to bookmark your blog and will eventually come back very soon. I want to encourage that you continue your great posts, have a nice afternoon!
