The best memories of my childhood are from spending Christmas Eve with close family, enjoying each other’s company and a great meal prepared by my Grandmother.”

Spanish Chicken with Saffron Onions and Olives

By Jim Webster

Before “America: Farm to Table” was released, I was working on a mantra.   You don’t need to buy Alexander Weiser’s potatoes to make the potato recipes in the book work. You don’t specifically have to have Jim Bardenhagen’s apples or cherries, or Nathan Heath’s carrots.    The point is that you should find…
