My mom in her garden that has gradually morphed into a small organic farm.

why seasonal?

I am passionate about eating seasonally and locally because it is good for the environment but also because it's fun! Every month is like a celebration of whichever fruits, veggies, herbs and proteins are presently ripe and ready to be the momentary star of my kitchen. 

Growing up, my parents always grew a multitude of fresh veggies in our backyard in Rhode Island, which triggered my addiction to snacking on tomatoes off the vine. Today, their garden is a magnificent monstrosity that could feed their whole neighborhood and it is my primary inspiration for cooking and eating seasonally. 

It's my hope that my passion emanates through each publication, inspiring your own participation in eating locally and seasonally.
