2017 Martha’s Vineyard Workshop

March 25, 2017

Join us in the land amid the streams for three days of exploration, creativity, photography and learning on the island of Martha’s Vineyard.
This May (19th – 21st) cookbook author, food52 contributor and island resident Sarah Waldman and I will be hosting an intimate workshop in the charming island village of Chilmark. Known for its rolling hills, breathtaking water views and rural charm, it is home to some of the island’s most beautiful and bountiful working farms and food stories.
Our home base for two nights will be one of the island’s simple but quintessential shingled, white trimmed farmhouses. With bucolic views out over fields, a little brackish pond and the wild Atlantic, it will afford the perfect position for daily expeditions. We will travel to a historic harbor-side fishing village, nearby farm stands, cheesemaker, flower farm, charming in-town restaurant and beautiful beaches. continue reading

Overtime, these tea filled afternoons together have become a ritual; our ritual.  continue reading
