I’ll confess: I’m a farmer wannabe. And I expect I’m not the only one.
I love spending a few hours at a farm, enjoying the sunshine on my face, working with my hands, and chatting with the farmers. But put me on a farm for two days and all my muscles turn into knots and dirt is so deeply ingrained in the grooves of my fingers that it never washes out no matter how much soap I use.
Congratulations to Jamie Seiffer, localvore baker extraordinaire and winner of the 2011 We ♥ Local Food dessert recipe competition. Jamie stole the hearts and tastebuds of the sampling crowd at this Saturday’s winter farmers’ market with his Chewy Maple Cookies.
