notes from maggie's farm
We're going to be PUBLISHED, y'all.
Well, let me clarify. We're going to have some food, and some pictures, published in a community cookbook, if all pass muster.
We are absolutely over the moon at the prospect. And we're proud as punch to be a part of the community of Austin Food Blogger Alliance, which is producing the collection, and provided the opportunity for us to all get together for a sampling of many of the dishes included in the book, recipes for which were tested by fellow members.
We were hosted by the lovely Springdale Farm, who graciously handed over their personal space, along with the gorgeous grounds, for us to use in photographing dishes, and gnoshing together amid the pastoral setting. All of the farm-lovely nooks and crannies left us swooning. I had to get a few shots of non-dishes, too, natch.
If you're in the area, do make a trip to Springdale Farms for the public farm stand they operate every Wednesday and Saturday, from 9-1pm, for They offer the very best seasonal vegetables and eggs for purchase. If you're lucky, you might just catch Fatback Boucherie, which provides delectable creole fare from a food trailer on the grounds.
And do stay tuned for what's sure to be a diverse and delicious glimpse of Austin's diverse food blogger world, with the publication of the Austin Food Blogger Alliance cookbook, out soon! You might just see a little bit of this, and this, if we're lucky!
Have a lovely weekend!
