Alas, it's raining!! It's what the farmers need - some good ol' H2O. Ironically, the rain fell on the evening that Farm Girl Farmer, Laura Meister, hosted a celebration of the harvest with other farmers and farm advocates at her farm under the tent. Chef, Brian Alberg, from the Red Lion Inn, served up a grilling extravaganza - goat, lamb burgers, his own smoked ham, veggies and a whole halibut. Oh my god - it was o-u-t-s-t-a-n-d-i-n-g!!!!!!!
Thank you farmers and Laura!!
And might I add that Chef, Michael Ballon's chocolate covered macaroons were the BEST I have ever tasted - I am buying his cookbook just for that recipe!!
Cynthia Close, Executive Director, says it best: "While many other cooking shows have been made for television none seem to present the potential that you describe to help salvage a part of many families history, passed down from mothers and Grandmothers to their children. In a way this is like “salvage anthropology”, and your goal to encourage the “buy local”, CSA movement that is really taking hold in America today, helps to address issues of the environment, sustainable living and sustainable agriculture all rolled into one."
