I actually read some quite un chefy chef books to concoct my theories on sustainable agriculture and food policy. They definitely reflect my passion. It is all about having those core values, then as a creative, anything is possible with that platform.

All of these books helped me understand the importance of seasonal eating, not only for health, but the environment, farmer, and animal. There is so much food we can turn into greatness, but yet, we have limited ourselves. All of these books really targeted the power of food.

Eating with The Seasons- Paula Bartimeus
Staying Healthy with the seasons- Elson M. Haas
Healing with Whole Foods- Paul Pitchford
Physical Properties of Food,- Peleg and Bagley
The World’s Healthiest Foods- George Mateljan
The New Optimum Nutrition Bible, Patrick Holford

*The rest of my education has come with conversations with my farmers, and those just aren’t written down anywhere.

My book recommendation is “The kind diet” by Alicia Silverstone...great recipes, focuses on on foods that take care of us and don’t harm the environment.
