While I always enjoy the experience of meeting and interviewing people for the Field & Feast radio series, I had a particularly lovely and inspiring interview with cook and author, Tamar Adler, during SXSW Eco in 2012. She’s a cook and author of An Everlasting Meal: Cooking with Economy and Grace (Simon & Schuster 2011).

After her presentation I had the opportunity to interview her for the program, and had the best time. She was charming, absolutely sincere and passionate about using food resources responsibly and deliciously.

If you care about food and what you put in to your body and serve your family (or course you do), and have not read An Everlasting Meal, do yourself a favor and get the book. You will be inspired.

Bio from Tamar’s Website:

Tamar worked as an editor at Harper’s Magazine from 2001 through 2004. Having cooked at Prune restaurant one summer, after leaving Harper’s, Tamar worked as a personal chef, wrote, and did research for Dan Barber of Blue Hill and Blue Hill at Stone Barns.

In 2005 Tamar moved to Athens, Georgia, to help friends open Farm 255, where she was the head-chef until leaving for California in 2007. She was hired at Chez Panisse a few weeks after arriving and spent a year and a half cooking there, also co-founding and directing the second meat CSA in the country, and leading Slow Food Berkeley.

In 2009, Tamar left Chez Panisse to write An Everlasting Meal. She now spends most of her time writing, punctuated by odd, terrifying, wonderful cooking commissions. She also teaches cooking, and just finished a job as the first cooking teacher at Edible Schoolyard NYC, and is working on her next book.

Tamar’s work has appeared in the Bangkok Post, Harper’s Magazine, The New Leader, Mother Jones, Meatpaper, Salon.com, Fine Cooking, and Gilt Taste.

  1. Dear Field and Feast,

    My name is Garrett. I came across Field and Feast, and as someone who covers food I feel that CitySprout’s recent activities in Austin might be of interest to you and your readers. We’ve recently been featured on the Martha Stewart Living Radio show and in the Bustin Business Journal.

    CitySprout is an online, social marketplace that allows communities to connect directly with their surrounding small farms and local food producers and gain access to fresh, healthy, local food.

    Our mission is to rebuild the lost relationship between communities and the people producing their food. In addition, our platform helps mitigate the environmental impacts associated with modern food distribution, provides small farms and food producers with tools to help them succeed, and makes local food and proper dietary nutrition available for any and all communities regardless of income level.

    After a successful trial launch this summer in the Northeast, CitySprout selected Austin as the first city in which to expand our program. Our aim is to bring the CitySprout experience national in the coming years.

    We believe Austin is an ideal location due to its year-round growing season, as well as a progressive population highly involved with the local food movement.

    We’ve spoken with many of the large employers, homeowner associations, and places of worship as well as a vast array of small farms and local food producers in and around Austin. Since many of our communities are private and therefore unsearchable, I’d be more than happy to give you a test drive of a CitySprout community whenever you have some time available. We are pleased to say that the reception so far has been outstanding! We hope to have many vibrant CitySprout communities up and running over the coming months and look forward to helping Austin’s communities and food producer rebuild and strengthen their relationships.

    I would be more than happy to jump on the phone at your earliest convenience to answer any questions you may have. You can reach out to me at 413-341-8250.

    Thank you for very much for your time!


    Garrett Fitzgerald
