An Introduction…

 Do you long for the days when butter actually had its own legitimate food group? (Seriously. Check out the above chart from WWII.) Do you refer to Food Network chefs on a first name basis? (Not just Emeril or Paula, but Giada too.) Is D.C. Restaurant Week one of your favorite holidays of the year?

If so, I think this could be the start of a beautiful friendship.

In my day job, I help promote the importance of American agriculture. In this space. I want to celebrate good food by highlighting tried-and-true recipes from my own ‘test kitchen’ and spotlight some great places to find a good bite to eat in the district.

Since most of us are so removed from where our food comes from – seriously, only about two percent of us live and work on a farm, it’s crazy – I want to go a step further by “introducing” a few of the farmers who make our meals possible. You may not know it, but there is a vibrant, passionate group of agriculture advocates (ag-vocates, if you will) that are using social media to talk about their way of life.

Food is a hot topic, and I’m ready to dive into the conversation. Won’t you join me?
