Beginning 2015 with a #SeacoastToast
As I prepare to ring in the new year, I can’t help but to look forward to those first warm days in April when weeding and planting begin. Salty ocean air will waft in through my kitchen windows once again and farmer’s markets will be bustling hubs for all things green. The emergence of spring on the Seacoast makes trudging through the ice and snow in January and February worth it. Budding flowers in the garden, fresh greens at the markets, and the weekend we can finally hit the decks never gets less exciting. In fact, it will be even more so in 2015 with the debut of Edible Seacoast.
The natural food movement on the seacoast has taken on a life of its own in recent years, and our publication is here to facilitate that growing process -- unearthing the raw love for food that many in our community are so deeply vested in. From farmers and fisherman to home cooks and chefs, a love for cooking well, eating real, and fostering connections around the table are values that have long sustained New Hampshire. We are inspired by seasonal ingredients, local food, and the strength and passion pulsing through our community. And we have stories to tell. I am beyond thrilled to bring Edible Seacoast to our community, to encourage the roots of those values to grow deeper, spread wider, and, of course, to celebrate the food itself.
The seacoast harbors infinite stories behind devoted growers, passionate chefs, talented food artisans, and home cooks toting little ones behind them early on Saturday mornings to meet their farmer. I am honored to share these stories with all of you. I invite you to savor each issue of our publication and to join us around the table as we continue to enjoy real food in New Hampshire.
Here’s to 2015, and a #seacoasttoast to the abundance of community devoted to eating well.
