Black Diamond Canyon Kitchen is a blog of growing, raising, buying, and of course, cooking and eating food local to Gallup. It's written by me, Kevin Buggie.
In the foothills of the Zuni Mountains of New Mexico -- Gallup, Ramah, Zuni --the environment is beautiful but challenging for growing food. Sparse rain, heavy soils, and early summer frost are the major hurdles, yet growers persist and many thrive. They have for at least ten centuries.
This is my way of sharing my experience of acquiring seasonal local food for my kitchen, whether it be grown and raised in my garden, or bought locally. All photos and prepared food are my own unless otherwise labeled. Enjoy.
