Kurt Timmermeister with Nancy Leson
Kurt Timmermeister wants to eat great food. He says, “And not just any great food, but food grown here, made here, and about this beautiful place on Vashon Island. You might live down the street from my farm, across the country, or across the globe; it doesn’t matter. I want folks to find the food that grows in their yards, that is for sale at their farmers’ markets, and that reflects their life and surroundings. Food is about context and place and time. Farm Food is my way of bringing this experience to you.” In his book, Farm Food Volume One: Fall and Winter (Cookhouse Publishing), he shares some of this vision, along with illustrations and recipes.
He appears tonight in conversation with food writer Nancy Leson. Kurt Timmermeister is also the author of Growing a Farmer and Growing a Feast (both published by Norton) and he’s the owner of Kurt’s Farm Shop, an ice cream and cheese purveyor in Chophouse Row.
