Welcome to Girl Farm Kitchen!
When I first considered starting this blog after graduating college in 2011, it was a bit of a crazy idea: leave New York City and a job in magazines, work on a farm in Santa Cruz, California, and chronicle the food I ate along the way. “Along the way” turned into a far more rewarding experience than I would have imagined, and my time at Love Apple Farms came to represent just what I’d been looking for: beautiful meals that were prepared and shared among friends. Now that I work for Conservation International and travel often, I have a new mission—to capture that communal appreciation of cooking and eating wherever I go.
If there’s one thing I know about food, it’s that it’s so much more than simply feeding ourselves: food is community, creativity, family and festivity, whether you’re eating alone or serving 15 friends. I look forward to sharing recipes and stories, all of them inspired by the ones I hear from the wonderful people around me every day.
