Those of you who are new to the site, welcome! I am delighted to have you here. You can read the most recent posts on the homepage, or explore recipes, or, if you’re curious, learn more about me and the inspiration behind Plate to Plate. I’ve compiled a list of locavorish sources over there in the sidebar, but I’m always looking for more. Email me if you have suggestions, or just to say hi. I’d love to hear from you.
What a wonderful little write-up. Thanks to Mark and the New York Times!
