Brinjal. Aubergine. Eggplant!

Black-Beauty-Eggplants

I like to pick the medium-sized ones or the Asian eggplants. I think they’re a little more tender. They have a more compact structure on the inside.

The big eggplants are really best for pureeing into baba ghanoush, says Chef Daniel Orr. But since he has small aubergines in the kitchen today, he’ll be baking them off with a miso glaze. It’s a perfect time of year to go all out with eggplant, so we’ll also present Arlyn Llewellyn’s chipotle marinated eggplant tacos.

Then from WFYI's Drew Daudelin, Open Bite Night is a grassroots event in Indianapolis that aims to serve the community and give budding food entrepreneurs a boost.

And, when life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. Or, if you’re Lula Luu of Fin Gourmet, when life gives you carp, you make Kentucky Blue Snapper.
