Fooleryland needs a Holiday Gift Guide, don't you think? So here is my first FOOLHOGG entry. This is sure to go viral.
Chas now has a published author in his family. And, because I married Chas, I can claim chef Sarah Scott as part of my family. See how I did that?
Sarah is a chef in the Napa Valley, and I've written about her before, which, you know, feel free to go read. Here's her photo*:
For over a year Sarah has been working on the book The Wild Table: Seasonal Foraged Food and Recipes with Connie Green, who is this lady:
Connie Green is an expert in the field of foraging wild foods -- from all over North America, I understand -- which she then ships to famous chefs. Sarah Scott created the recipes using these foods. The resulting collaborative cookbook features over 100 recipes using mushrooms, berries, and other stuff that grows beside the road treats. I have ordered one for my brother Chef Bocci (who never reads my blog so this won't be a give-away) and one for myself for Chas to give me for Christmas. Yep. Easier that way.
Check out their web site** if you need a gift for an adventurous, creative soul. Or for someone like me, who likes to pretend she's adventurous and creative.
*I showed this to the girls and asked if they remembered meeting cousin Sarah for lunch in the Napa Valley. Sparky asked, "How old is she? Is she 30?" (She really did, Sarah.)
**This is not a review because I have not even seen the book yet. Nor was this in any way a sponsored post. I'm just pushy and like to associate myself with winners.
