Gastronomy. The word itself conjures up images of European chefs and erudite food writers. But today’s new gastronome is a chef who cares about biodynamic farming, a farmer who cares about the quality and heritage of food, an artisan food producer who supports heirloom and rare varieties, even a home cook who finds adventure in exploring everything edible. Now gastronomy sounds friendly and sustainable. Good for the earth, and good for us. Good for you, Gastronomy.

New Farmers at the Saturday Market
Two new farmers appeared at the Bellingham Saturday Farmer's Market. Shelli Thompson and Paula Gully of LUNARia Farm & Garden. Their presentation took my breath away. Everything is laid out with such care. I bought their tender Russian kale and it was delicious. I look forward to seeing them as Market regulars. Gorgeous.
