Q. Please tell me a bit about yourself and your cooking background.
A. I have always loved everything that is food related, even as a child I liked to cook. My dream was to one day study the art of food and its preparation. To this end, I enrolled at Johnson and Wales University where, after graduation, I quickly became interested in the sustainability movement. My love of farmers’ markets and roadside food stands led to the birth of my first cookbook, Dishing Up Vermont. I am also the author of The Vermont Farm Table Cookbook and co-author of The Connecticut Farm Table Cookbook. The fall of 2017 saw the release of my fourth book, The Vermont Non-GMO Cookbook. Each of my books seem to pave the way for my next literary adventure.
Q. Tell me about your new book?
A. The Vermont Non-GMO Cookbook focuses on the non-GMO and organic elements of the food system throughout Vermont. The book’s emphasis is on food transparency – “Know What is in Your Food.” It simplifies the complexity of the movement with recipes that include ingredients that do not contain genetically modified organisms. Along with these recipes, profile formats are used to introduce the reader to the book’s contributors. It was important to me that readers not only savor the delicious recipes, but walk in these folks’ shoes for a bit and share their thoughts, dreams and passion for what they do.
