Excitedly I am here to announce my very first article in print is out now, ready to pick up and read! Complete with two recipes to try! Many of you have commented on it already and I appreciate all that you've said.
I feel honored to be in an issue alongside so many other great writers and subjects. My favourite article is a fascinating one on abattoirs, and our lack of them in Northern California, by the editor Bruce Cole of Saute Wednesday fame. Pim writes a funny piece called "When Bad Things Happen to Good Ingredients," Kim O'Neill, a brief boss of mine, highlights local food finds, Andy Griffith, one helluva farmer growing many a delicious veg and fruit reports on the humorous and extremely frustrating trials and tribulations of milking a goat and many other talented people put informative words to paper.
If you don't live nearby it is very easy to subscribe. Specify that you want to start with the Spring 2006 issue, and three others will follow. If I have any hair left to pull out after the Rhubarb article, I will be meeting a deadline soon for the summer issue as well.
Not convinced you want to trek to find this local mag? Here's a teaser ~
"When was the last time you cozied up to rhubarb? Rejoiced in rhubarb's inherent crunchy sour bright red traits?
Rhubarb is a vegetable caught in something like San Francisco's current gender dysphoria theme. Born a stalk, rhubarb passes as a fruit and few question its access into the world of seeded produce."
