Live in Salem, NH From VT originally. Enjoy gardening and brake for all local farm stands. I admire and respect the old cooking styles and recipes. I also try to incorporate the methods into my cooking. My idols: Julia, Lidia, Ina Garden, Mom, my ancestors who cooked before me. Food I love to eat and make: Chard with bacon, anything Quebec such as tourtiere (Pork Pie), home made pickles, anything local, fresh and in season. CORN!! I enjoy and get pleasure from roasting large pieces of meat. I love to grill and have friends over and enjoy the harvest. Hobbies: Genealogy. Working out, travel, ebay, flea and antiques fairs, collecting butter dishes and refrigerator dishes. I love my dog Jackie a rhodesian ridgeback. Just because it's easy to make, does not mean its good.
