Welcome to my table! I’m Rachel, an experimental locavore, embarking on an adventure in finding, cooking, eating, and serving local, seasonal foods.
In anticipation of eating locally, I researched the topic of local and in season produce, cooking, and lifestyles. Sure, I found great books on the subject as well as some helpful websites with lists of farms and farmer’s markets, but I didn’t find anything very specific to the region in which I live: the tiny state of Delaware. After coming up nearly empty-handed, I decided to start a blog about finding my own way in Delaware’s local food scene. I’m no expert. That’s why this is an experiment. So what you’ll find here is what I’m learning along the way, like where to shop for the best, most affordable local foods, where to find restaurants that serve local foods, and how to prepare your food finds deliciously.
My hope is that my experience will help you learn more about local options, and in the process, live a healthier and happier existence more in tune with the rhythms of creation. If you have any tips or questions, please leave me a comment.
