Join her in the fields, in the barns, and out in the vineyards through these wonderful stories accompanied by delicious recipes that highlight farm-fresh tastes such as Grilled Peaches with Berry Coulis; Spinach, Strawberry and Dill Salad; Caramelized Onion and Sage Frittata; Herb Rubbed Flank Steak; Beer-Braised Lamb Shanks; Pork Chops with Sage Sauce; Raspberry Cream Custard; Chilled Blueberry and Yogurt Soup; and Heirloom Spaghetti Sauce. Treat yourself to a luscious cup of White Hot Chocolate, a warm Multigrain Apple Pecan Scone and a copy of Farms and Foods of Ohio and meet the "locals." Once you know their story, the next Ohio grown apple, farm fresh egg or sliver of farmstead cheese you enjoy will taste extra special.
