In 1861 my great-great grandfather purchased some land in Washington Territory, my uncles and cousins are still farming that land today, http://www.nelsonranch.com/.
My mom left the ranch, but instilled in me a love of the land and a desire to grow and eat food that is whole and nutritious, which I am attempting to instill in my own kids now.
After trying a couple of different careers and three kids, I realized I needed come back to what I love. In 2012 I decided to go to culinary school, which has been the best decision of my life so far. I realized there are other people in the world who love not just eating, but creating and talking about food as much as I do!
So here I am sharing what I’m making, what I’m reading, and what I’m thinking about when it comes to all things food.
