Winner for the Cookbook Giveaway on Cookus Interruptus
When Cynthia Lair of Cookus Interruptus invited her readers to add a comment to share the name of a farmer or local food product that they felt tender about, there were a bounty of responses demonstrating how precious our farmers are to our well-being and enjoyment of our food. Although there was the added incentive of one lucky winner to be randomly selected to receive a copy of TENDER: farmers, cooks, eaters, much love and appreciation was felt in all the comments shared. Jake from Arlington, MA was the lucky winner, who posted the following about some special people in his life:
“I am torn. I love our grain farmers at Pioneer Valley Heritage Grain CSA! They deliver some of the most nutritious grains anyone could hope for. Just the other day we had an Arikara bean chowder (beans from them) with a spelt salad (spelt from them). I am also in love with our meat farmers at Chestnut Farms Meat CSA. They care for their animals as if they were children (except they end up on the plate in the end). We eat only this meat and take advantage of their holiday turkey and fresh eggs, too. Best people and best meat, bottom line. Good farmers are a rare breed and they deserve our love and respect (even though they might tell you otherwise). Go hug a farmer.” Jake B., Arlington, MA
Congratulations, Jake, on being the lucky recipient of TENDER: farmers, cooks, eaters through your participation in the Cookus Interruptus community-building contest. We were honored to be chosen by Cynthia to be featured, and share a common purpose of encouraging and inspiring simple ways to enjoy the seasonal bounties of our farmers’ efforts.
We hope you enjoy TENDER and invite you to share your experience of it with us here so others can enjoy learning from your perspective.
Thank you for fully participating, and for hugging your farmers, too!
