Join Elbert in an adventure in culinary delights!
An unexpected but welcome outcome of this venture into the world of food, farming, and concern about our food system was the creation of a community of cooks, gardeners, and food producers who enjoyed cooking and eating together. People came back again and again for the relationships and sense of belonging that developed around the stove and table. It was a bit magical.
