In Memory.

Longtime readers may remember our IF outing to Vermont a couple of years ago. The highlight of our trip was a visit to the home of (then-strangers) Michael and Jen. The two opened their home and kitchen to us, and passionately told us about the progressive work that they were doing in the world of food. We became instant friends.

Yesterday, the food community of Vermont — and far beyond — lost one of their own. Our one-day host was fatally shot at his co-op, an unthinkable act. Our hearts go out to Jen and her family, to Michael’s family, to the folks at the Brattleboro Food Co-op and to the whole community. Throughout the world, where we buy our food is intimately tied with our community, and we cannot imagine the security and trust that’s been stolen from the people of Brattleboro through this awful, awful tragedy.

Rest in peace, Michael.

    Found your blog when searching for Gnocchi recipes! I live in Brattleboro and appreciate the kindness of your post. It was a shocking event and shattered the community.
