I ate grilled lettuce for the first time in my life which had just been freshly harvested. Truly awesome! Chef John of FoodWishes, the most popular video food blogger in the world, shared yesterday on his blog about how to grill the lettuce and great detail of the tour.
Ever had an egg on your pizza? I have now and it was yummy. And I also figured out how to connect an almond farmer in the middle of harvest to food bloggers. Brent of 4G Farms connected via iPads with the bloggers over our lunch at Tanimura and Antle Farms.
Nancy told her story of her husband’s 5th generation family dairy north of San Francisco, raising their kids on the farm and why she started blogging. Now she calls herself a social media addict and I am so glad she is because that’s how we became dear friends
Certified organic or conventionally raise strawberries? Does it matter to you? We listened to a fabulous farmer, Tom of Naturipe, who taught me more than I could ever dream of knowing and he raises both organic and conventionally raised strawberries. After listening to him, I support both practices and understand more depth of the “whys” behind raising specialty crops like strawberries.
Before heading home, Jay Baer, a top recognized social media strategist and someone I’ve worked with for the past two years along with the bloggers and our team wrapped up on our thoughts.
