One of the great things about living in Farm Country are all the little fairs and festivals celebrating all things of the earth. We adore small country fairs. What I like best are all the cottage industries that get to strut their stuff. We’ve come home with jars of local honey, blends of spices and locally made cheeses. There are the farms dedicated to olives, with all sorts of flavored oils. And balsamic vinegars, made like fine wines. Kiddo and I love to walk among the various booths, sampling their creations, lingering over the flavors and discussing menu ideas. Kiddo truly is my sous chef.
