Bend Food: Stories of Local Farms and Kitchens drops June 25, 2018. It’s about the farm-to-table movement here in Central Oregon.┬áDuring the summer and fall of 2017, I interviewed farmers, chefs, local food advocates and organizations. From watching a farmer slaughter a chicken to eating a French Breakfast Radish plucked right out the ground on a cool morning…What a wonderful journey! So thankful to Arcadia Publishing and The History Press for this amazing opportunity.

Pre-ordering is available now on this website. You may also purchase books at Roundabout Bookshop, Central Oregon Locavore, and Bluebird Coffee Company once the book is out on June 25. Many thanks to them and other local bookstores for carrying it! I’m setting up author events in Central Oregon. Please visit the Event Calendar page for more information. Hope to see you at an event!
