I got to see the market at the end of summer and was astounded by the unusual and plentiful veggies that grow way up north. There were cucumber varieties and colors that I’d never seen or heard of, crazy-looking beans, a rainbow of heirloom tomatoes that I was shocked to see so far from Dixie, locally made liqueurs and of course, maple syrup. Maple syrup is Vermont’s pride and joy!
They also had a good selection of goat cheeses, but since I was traveling and so far from home, I didn’t indulge.
It takes a Renaissance woman to cover the cool, shocking, tasty, thought-provoking things on this planet. Tamar started life as a professional violinist; she was the youngest girl to solo with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. After becoming a criminal defense attorney in Baltimore, she discovered a world beyond classical music and courthouses. Perhaps it was when she was on TV with celebs Bill Maher and Peter Frampton. Possibly, it was after she judged the Roadkill Cookoff or the International Water Tasting Festival. Tamar is a Kentucky Colonel and has managed several Southern rock and alt-country bands.Tamar has traveled around the world; let her help you guide you to the special places to go and the fabulous things to bring there and bring back home!
