There is a rhythm in the kitchen here... of busyness, laughter, and determination. The excitement of the big event - only hours away. Months of hard work and preparations, people offering their hands and talents, nourishment - grown with love, straight from seed ... all gathered here, in this kitchen. With these beautiful people we now call dear friends. We all share the same vision. The same passion. The same need to educate - and draw attention to this beautiful process called Farm to Table. It is the idea that the food that nourishes us - comes straight from the garden, from local farms in your area, and with simple preparations it is enjoyed - and savored - at your table, with the ones you love and cherish.
Celebrate with me - the firestarters of this handcrafted event:
Herman & Beverly Jenkins of Main Street Cafe.
Karen Childress of the Jonesborough Farmer's Market.
and the many, many, many sweet hands who helped to piece together all the details.
Check back soon - the best is yet to come.
