Favorite thing to eat at the market: Greens! the spicier and more bitter, the better!
Fun Fact: I own a cow dairy called Hacienda La Chima in the Andes mountains of Ecuador with my brothers. When I can’t be there in person, I keep an eye on our lovely bovines via WhatsApp. The farm has been in our family for well over a hundred years and is probably my favorite spot on earth.
Favorite thing to eat at the market: Berries! Strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, dewberries, you name the berry and I love it. Growing up in Oregon we picked all our own berries, so only farmers’ market berries will cut it in my book.
Fun Fact: I love to go birding and try to get out and bird every week if I can. I see it as a form of meditation and a way to really attune myself to the world around me. My favorite Central Texas year-round bird is the pied-billed grebe. My favorite seasonal bird is the osprey.
