Back in the olden days we had a connection to the food we ate. We knew where it came from. Just about everything we bought was in season and minimally processed. We recognized and understood the ingredients on the label, if there even was a label. Go look in your refrigerator right now. Without looking at the sticker or label, can you say where any of it comes from? Was it was grown locally (in-season by definition)? How was it produced/harvested? How much processing did it have to undergo? Can you identify and define all the ingredients on the label?

The recipe is somewhat involved, but you can prep the steps ahead of time, leaving just the layering and cooking for about an hour before dinner.
